Union Pacific 4014 - Year of the Big Boy - Vol. 3

The Great Race Across the Southwest

In late September, Union Pacific 'Big Boy' #4014 embarked on the third and final tour of 2019: "The Great Race Across the Southwest." Like the inaugural trip in May, 4014 traveled west from Cheyenne, WY to Ogden, UT. The train then headed southwest to Nevada and California, before traveling east through Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. The 2nd half of the tour began on November 1st and saw 4014 continue east into Texas, with stops in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Kansas, before passing through Denver, CO on the final leg back to Cheyenne. This program covers the actual southwestern portion of the 2-month long tour, beginning in Las Vegas, NV on October 8th.

We'll follow the Big Boy south from Las Vegas into California, as #4014 returned to the Golden State for the first time since being restored to operation. You'll see the locomotive climbing Cima Hill and passing through Afton Canyon, before utilizing BNSF trackage rights over Cajon Pass to reach the Los Angeles area. Then we'll cover the 2 public excursions for the RailGiants Museum over Cajon, before following #4014 east on the former Southern Pacific 'Sunset Route.' You'll see #4014 climb Beaumont Hill, travel through the Salton Sink, and cross the Colorado River into Arizona. We'll then follow the Big Boy across the Sonoran Desert to Tucson, before traveling further east into New Mexico. This program concludes with the train crossing the Rio Grande River into El Paso, TX - officially ending the 1st half of the tour.
