For any railfans out there, or even people with somewhat of an interest (if you haven't heard already). Union Pacific's Big Boy No. 4014 once again ran under it's own power yesterday after a 6 year restoration. With 6,300 HP and 135,000 lbs. of tractive effort, and weighing in at almost a million pounds unloaded... this thing is a monster of a locomotive.
From what I understand, it will be present at the 150th anniversary of the completion of the first Transcontinental Railroad on May 10th. at Promontory Summit.
