ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. – Union Pacific Big Boy No. 4014 has a tough act to beat during the week this week after a stellar Sunday, May 5 appearance heading to its final destination for the day, Rock Springs, Wyo.

Much of the local community turned out to see the 4-8-8-4 steam locomotive, but the big show was from a nearby bluff east of the city, where videographers could see the locomotive, sister 4-8-4 No. 844 and a short Union Pacific consist roll into town.

  1. How do I get the TRAINS logo to stop blocking the view of the video? I am a subscriber and should not have this problem.

  2. I also have the trains logo covering up the video. This is in addition to being dropped from the weekly news email – doesn’t sit well since I’ve been a continuous subscriber since 1981
