Pushing Metal.... by lil-Mickey Pushing Metal.... by lil-Mickey
A rare visit by UP 844, one of the last of the giants... pushing by the way, no balloon track downtown to turn around in...

I got to see this beast up close once when it made a pit-stop in Reno. I think I must have been 7 or 8 at the time.

Grew up with Uncle Pete; I remember when Big Boys like this were still pulling Northwest-bound streamliners up Sherman Hill.

I rode Union Pacific's Challenger from Chicago to Pocatello, Idaho, in 1952 at the age of seven. We hooked up to a Big Boy in Cheyenne for the haul up Sherman Hill, and I wondered why a steam engine should pull a state-of-the-art streamliner. Growing up in Poky thereafter, I remember row upon row of steam engines parked along Yellowstone Avenue into downtown for years as they were scrapped. Later, in high school, I would occasionally spend time high up in Juniper Hills at a buddy's house (his dad was a UP supervisor) listening to jazz and watching the yellow streamliners worm their way through the Portneuf Gap and into the yard (then the largest between Omaha and Portland, and still very active). An indelible memory.

Very cool indeed, I can only imagine some of the stories you might have from back then. :)

This is quite elegant for a steam powered machine.

This engine was used in the intro of Shining Time Station (Thomas and Friends american spin-off).
