Union Pacific #4014 at St. Paul MN Union Depot earlier today:
Cycledude---Big thanks for the reminder! Looked at the schedule last nite and it was only 50 mi away! May try to catch it rolling North toward Duluth on Saturday as well. Running on recycled motor oil, 20 gallons/mile!
Next Tuesday it will be stopping in Altoona wi which is just east of Eau Claire . If I understand it right It’s supposed to be parked there for about 3 hours and for 2 of those hours they will be giving tours.
Went for a little run yesterday, and stopped at the zoo in Altoona. Saw 3 wings stuck in traffic on a bridge at 2pm ish as I was heading for home. Didn’t think that there would that big of a turn out to it. Didn’t try to do the tour through the exhibit, the line went on for 2 city blocks.
I am a BIG train nut!
I intend to be in Rochelle, IL at the Rochelle Train Park on the 30th to see the Big Boy arrive and then I'm going to jump on my Wing and head west on I-88 and US 30 to Clinton, IA to watch it arrive there. Whoo-Whoo!
