Union Pacific's Big Boy engine 4023 is on display in Kennefick Park, Omaha, Nebraska. Arguably the largest successful steam engine ever built, the first group of Big Boys was used on UP's run from Ogden to Wahsatch, Utah, and was specifically designed to be strong enough to pull a freight train over the 1.14% grade of the Wahsatch. The engine pictured here was built in 1944 as part of the second group of Big Boys manufactured as part of the WWII effort. Most of the Big Boys were finally retired from service in 1961.
