Re: The lights seem to be on, but nobodys home

I'm around, just busy at work. I check the board at least once a day. Following the amazing amount of UP fans on the Official Union Pacific Steam Club Facebook page, wondering how or if safety education is going to play out for the undoubted massive mobs of new railfans who are going to come out to ...

4014 Hydrostatic Test (unlisted video link from UP)

Shared video by Ed Dickens.

Looks like the rear drivers are installed now too.

Re: 4014 Schedule Article for 2019, Trains Magazine

The Union Pacific Steam Club Facebook page (an officially run page by UP), did a short video by Ed Dickens, announcing that the first hydrostatic tests of the boiler are underway. Whether it's ready for Ogden or not, the speed at which this has been done is nothing short of amazing.

Re: 4014 Schedule Article for 2019, Trains Magazine

John - Unknown on the boiler question. There has been no visible evidence coming out of Cheyenne. Last images I saw were of the boiler being re-attached to the front engine set, which was completed. Rear drivers were still not yet installed. Part of me still wonders this... some time back a person i...

4014 Schedule Article for 2019, Trains Magazine

http://trn.trains.com/news/news-wire/2019/01/23-mid-february-for-ups-big-boy-4014-schedule-this-spring The article's a little vague, but the biggest draw I'm getting from this is that 4014 will tour the UP system after Ogden. I'm more curious when and where the break-in and test runs will start.

Re: The Denver Post Has Cancelled Its Frontier Days Train

"The Post said UP’s use of its historic rail cars in 2019 and beyond played a contributing factor in the CFD Train run’s demise."

Got any specifics on this? Don't know why just UP's railcars alone would be a problem?

Re: The Denver Post Has Cancelled Its Frontier Days Train

Any speculation a new operator will work with UP on making a similar run along the same route?

Re: NC&StL 576 4-8-4 Move Completed

Agreed on well-documented, John. They've been very engaged on Facebook since the endeavor started in the park, what's it been, 2-3 years ago now? One gentleman in particular has tirelessly provided up to the minute information, and just in case he's here I'd like to recognize him now: Joseph Darrel ...

Re: NC&StL 576 4-8-4 Move Completed

That's not yet being discussed publicly, the end game for the moment is an operational resto - which has been marketed with the public on Facebook very well since they started working on it in the park... your guess is as good as mine where they plan to run it.

Re: Friends of the 261 is Acquiring A Milwaukee Road E9

I was actually kinda thinking along the same lines, Mark. But being nowhere as experienced as others on this board, chose not to speak up.

Re: Minneapolis and future Light Rail

If they do this I might have to leave. I've got too many health issues that I can't do anything about, but I'm still forced to drive a car... I can't walk or bike long distances, just a block is barely possible.

Well...

Not sure how I never noticed it before, but... 261's tender has an interesting curve on the rear of it. Is it just conforming to the shape of the tank inside? https://scontent-ort2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/49661424_359212977963646_898695252120961024_n.jpg?_nc_cat=111&_nc_ht=scontent-ort2-1.xx&...
