KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Union Pacific’s Big Boy No. 4014 is making its way across the country in August and will be stopping temporarily at locations across the Kansas City metro.

This is the first tour since the locomotive was restored for 2019’s “Great Race” tours celebrating the 150th anniversary of the transcontinental railroad’s completion. The multi-year restoration took place at Union Pacific’s steam shop in Cheyenne, Wyoming, following a retirement that spanned six decades.

No. 4014 will leave the Steam Shop in Cheyenne, Wyoming, Aug. 5, making brief whistle-stops in communities across Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming.

No. 4014 is the world’s only operating Big Boy. The other seven can be found on display in Cheyenne, Wyoming; Denver; Frisco, Texas; Green Bay, Wisconsin; Omaha, Nebraska; Scranton, Pennsylvania; and St. Louis.

The locomotive will be in Lawrence, Kansas on Monday, Aug. 9, from 3:30 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. Then it will be in Edwardsville from 5:15 to 5:45 p.m. No. 4014 will then stop at Union Station in Kansas City at 7 p.m. and will be available for viewing all day Tuesday, Aug. 10. The locomotive will then depart Union Station at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 11 and will arrive in Paola, Kansas at 11:15 a.m. until noon.
