We begin in Cheyenne as 8444 has received its original number 844 (a UP diesel was retired, freeing up the number 844) and is set for a July 1989 outing. The 844 was requested to host the opening of the new Dispatch Center in Omaha and pull the Union Pacific Railroad Board of Directors on a special dinner train. The passenger coaches are already in Omaha, so 844 pulls regular freight trains 500 miles over a two day span to Omaha. Then at Omaha we see 844 pull the evening dinner train, with some nice low light shots. After the event is over, 844 has to head home to Cheyenne and pulls two more freight trains over a 2-day span, making for a total of 5 different trains on the video, and 4 are freights complete with a caboose. On the return we are also treated to some nice 65 mph pacing scenes next to the engine. You’ll enjoy the Nebraska landscape as we hit the major spots along the way, and even see 844 on the turntable in Council Bluffs, Iowa. This was the first run of 844, and we were the only video company there.

  1. Zac

    Great shots of the 844 headed out to Omaha with freight, in Omaha with the directors train, and headed back to Cheyenne with freight. This is my favorite DVD with the 844 in it, and a must have for an UP steam fan.

    Remember, Greg was the only railroad video producer to capture the rare first runs of the big northern’s original number back.
