Union Pacific 4-8-4 steam locomotive #844 holds the unique distinction of being the only mainline class one steam locomotive to never be retired. Now she’s UP’s goodwill ambassador, traveling far and wide over the Union Pacific system. In this program, you’ll follow 844 on some of her travels. See her as she runs from Cheyenne, Wyoming to Portland, Oregon, including Oregon’s beautiful Blue Mountains.
Next, follow her in Oklahoma and Texas, then you’ll see her on the original UP mainline in Nebraska, Wyoming and Utah. Hear this living legend as she gets loud on departure, see her as she goes by at almost 80 miles an hour and watch as she climbs some heavy grades, putting her all into it.
