Review of Union Pacific 4014 - Big Boy Back on Tour 2021 DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
After sitting cold in the steam shop for all of 2020, Union Pacific 'Big Boy' #4014 was back on tour in 2021 with a month-long trip to New Orleans, LA in the summer. This program covers 7 days of the tour starting with the first day on August 5th. Our coverage begins with the Big Boy charging up Archer Hill just east of Cheyenne, WY pulling a short freight and a caboose plus the 3 steam support cars. We'll then follow #4014 across western Nebraska, ending our coverage at Ogallala on August 6th.

We'll pick up the chase again at the beginning of September with comprehensive coverage of the last 5 days of the tour. Starting at Kansas City Union Station in Kansas City, MO, we'll follow #4014 west for 4 days across Kansas and eastern Colorado as the Big Boy climbed the high plains towards Denver and the distant Rocky Mountains. As always, large crowds were on hand to witness #4014 wherever it went and you'll see a number of the service stops in addition to plenty of thrilling tracksi
