    With a great variety of 4014’s very first mainline journey with 844 this past may, as well as a trip back in time to see 4014 and all 24 of her sister engines in action, this is a great tribute to bring back the strongest operational steam engines of the world. Even though challenger 3985 operated from 1981-2010.
