I just received this from UP

Union Pacific Steam Club Update No. 6 - Apr. 24, 2019

UP Steam

The Union Pacific Steam Team is busy making final preparations for the May 4 christening of the Big Boy No. 4014 in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Final touches on its paint job are being applied and the last necessary tests are being conducted.

To ensure the Big Boy is ready for its big debut, No. 844's whistle-stop tour that was scheduled for this Saturday and Sunday, April 27-28, has been cancelled. Instead, No. 844 will double-head with No. 4014 from Cheyenne to Ogden on May 4 after the 9:30 a.m. MT christening ceremony.

This new schedule will give the UP Steam Team more time to complete final preparations for No. 4014. The latest tour schedule is available at

May 9 Ceremonies to be Streamed Live via Facebook

Can't make it to Ogden for the big event May 9? That's OK, we've got you covered.

Union Pacific will be streaming the May 9 ceremonies live via the UP Facebook page, located at" onclick=";return false; . If you haven't already "liked" our Facebook page, do it today. You'll be notified as soon as the cameras start rolling.

May 10 events taking place at Promontory will not be streamed live on UP's Facebook page, but will be available via other online outlets.

Thanks, and be safe!
