Description

The “Western Heritage Tour” of Union Pacific steam engine 844 rolled through many cities and towns that witnessed the birth of the transcontinental railroad. The 844, a Northern Class steam locomotive, made special stops in eight cities across Utah, Nevada and California for the public to see this giant steam locomotive. The trip to California included the Centennial celebrations of the City of Roseville and the Western Pacific Railroad. BA Productions used multiple camera crews to capture the amazing trip over Donner, then through the Feather River Canyon while on board 844. Crisscrossed by lakes, streams and rivers, the Sierras served as a scenic backdrop for Old number 844, a living breathing creature that carefully navigates the regions creeks and canyons on a ribbon of iron rail. On its journey, thousands of spectators gathered to watch it glide by. See interviews with engineer Steve Lee, Fireman Rick Braunschweig, Machinist Ed Smith and many more, who tell the amazing story about what it takes to run this premier steam locomotive on a class 1 railroad!
