Union Pacific’s historic Big Boy steam locomotive No. 4014 is 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.
The Big Boy will make a brief stop in Claremore at the Florence Ave. crossing on Saturday, November 16, arriving at 1:30p and departing at 2p.
Remember these safety tips:
- Stand back at least 25 feet from all railroad tracks.
- Railroad tracks, trestles, yards and right-of-way are private property – please do not trespass.
- Never assume tracks are abandoned or inactive – ALWAYS expect a train.
