Up 844 Steaming It Up
After a brief stop in North Platte, Nebraska UP 844 starts moving slowly - the steam envelops the mighty locomotive as it passes under a viaduct.
Built in 1944, it was the last steam locomotive delivered to Union Pacific and is the only steam locomotive never to be retired by a North American Class I railroad.
The UP 844 has a wheel configuration of 4-8-4, the drivers have a diameter of 80". This photograph shows the gyrating Mars light just above the headlamp. In 2013, the Mars light was removed due to the mounting bolts failing.
UP 844 is used by Union Pacific for Excursion Service and logs thousands of miles each year.
