Small | Great Race Across the Southwest Route Map

Key Definitions 

On Display – In addition to day-long display hours, display days include access to the Experience the Union Pacific Rail Car. 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, all stops are "viewing only" locations.

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.

Some very fine photos here of 4014 Big Boy.  Railstream webcams do a variety of options, but the free version of a few cameras offer a guest cam each week.  When the Rosenberg TX cam of the week was available (don't remember the date) I clicked on to it and notices far more spectators, both sides of the tracks, than usual.  That suggested that something out of the ordinary was going to happen.  Well, it sis.  After a 20 minute wait I head a steam loco whistle so I waited for the loco to arrive.  It was Big Boy and it made a ten minute stop.  How lucky I was to look at that camera when Big Boy was coming through.  Sheer joy! :Clapping_Hands_Emoji_large(24x24):
