Special-edition Big Boy and Golden Spike souvenirs also are available for sale from the merchandise tent. Admission to display days are free. These are the best times to see the Big Boy. Viewing Only – Locations where fans can safely view the Big Boy. In some cases, the Big Boy will be displayed behind a fence or other perimeter. Unlike display days, the Experience the Union Pacific Rail Car will not be available for tours and merchandise will not be sold. Unless otherwise noted on the schedule, overnight stops are "viewing only." Passenger Excursion – While listed on the steam schedule, passenger excursion tickets are sold by outside entities -- not Union Pacific -- and are not available on the day of the excursion. No Public Access – Locations where the public is not allowed to view the Big Boy because of safety or security reasons. This usually means the locomotive will be stored within a rail yard or other Union Pacific property where live rail operations are being conducted. Non-employees who access these locations without permission will be treated as trespassers. In November, No. 4014 will continue on through Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Colorado on its way back to Cheyenne. We anticipate releasing the full schedule before the Sept. 27 tour launch.
  2. 4014 schedule update for next excursion (The Great Race Across the Southwest) For the final time this year, the Big Boy No. 4014 will ride the rails on the Union Pacific system. We're calling it "The Great Race Across the Southwest." No. 4014 will leave Cheyenne Sept. 27, and travel to locations in Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and Wyoming. Display locations include: Oct. 2-3: Provo, Utah Oct. 7: Las Vegas, Nev. Oct. 10-11: Greater Los Angeles Area Oct. 18: Tucson, Ariz. Oct. 21-22: El Paso, Texas While we are releasing the route map for the entire tour, only the October display dates are currently available. We anticipate releasing the full schedule before the Sept. 27 tour launch

    FYI to those waiting on engines, I confirmed with MTH today that they were still holding my pallet waiting on final items that were expected 7/13. So may be another 10 days or so before I receive.

    I was pleasantly surprised to not only see the new tooling for a new diesel (SD70ACe) but also at the same time, new tooling to completely remake the Challenger with full die-cast metal frames and drivers. (And that doesn't cover the Baggage car.) It's a positive sign that past sales warrant the risk and further investment/upgrade of the product line. I honestly never expected MTH to make the investment to upgrade the Challenger drive-train and shows they have an intent to make it right. I've already ordered a 3985 (black) and 3977 (Grey/Yellow) for myself (in addition to a UP Yellow SD70ACe)
