Union Pacific Living Legend #844

Living just a mile or so from the rail road yard and the main rail line running through town with some 80-100 trains per day one gets used to the sound of the whistle of the diesel locomotives. So, when we heard the whistle of what was definitely not a diesel locomotive we determined a steam engine was in town.

I dropped what I was doing – at the insistence of my loving wife – grabbed my camera and headed off – at legal speed of course – to the old depot. Sure enough, one of the Union Pacific’s Living Legend steam engines, #844, was in town. As usually happens at times like these, a crowd had gathered. I found a parking place that I think was legal and headed for the tracks.

#844 is a beautiful steam engine that has been restored through the hard work of many dedicated individuals. To find out more about this wonderful steam locomotive you can check out this website…
