Union Pacific’s Train Schedule of Big Boy 4014 and the Living Legend 844 Steam Engines at the Historic Train Depot in Downtown Laramie, Wyoming


Celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the Transcontinental Railroad’s Completion

Union Pacific’s historic steam locomotives – Big Boy No. 4014 and the Living Legend No. 844 – are touring the Union Pacific system throughout 2019 to commemorate the transcontinental railroad's 150th anniversary.

The Big Boy’s return to the rails is the product of more than two years of meticulous restoration work by the Union Pacific Steam Team. No. 4014 is the world's only operating Big Boy locomotive.

Due to the dynamic nature of these operations, running times and scheduled stops are subject to change.

No. 844 will leave Cheyenne, Wyoming, April 27 and will make several brief stops in communities before arriving in Ogden, Utah, April 28. 

"Experience the Union Pacific" displays include public access to the Experience Car and souvenir shop. The Experience the Union Pacific Car connects visitors to the innovative and expanding story of Union Pacific and modern railroad operations that have united the nation since 1869.

Big Boy No. 4014 will leave Cheyenne May 4 following a 9:30 a.m. MT christening ceremony at the historic Cheyenne Depot and arrive in Ogden for the May 9 celebratory event culminating in the Big Boy joining with The Living Legend No. 844. The celebratory event will be streamed live May 9 at 10:30 a.m. MT via the Union Pacific Facebook page.

Following the 150th anniversary celebrations, No. 4014 and No. 844 will double-head on their return trip to the Union Pacific Steam Shop in Cheyenne, stopping in communities along the way including Rock Springs and Laramie, Wyoming.
