IN STOCK AND SHIPPING AS OF 8-19-19

Experience history with the “Big Boy”! For the first time since 1961, Union Pacific’s Big Boy, number 4014 ran under its own power becoming the largest operational steam locomotive in the world in 2019. Big Boy has been on display in Pomona, California since 1961, but after an extensive rebuild years in the making, the Big Boy took off from Cheyenne, Wyoming in May 2019, to Utah to take part in the celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the Golden Spike.

As part of this historic event, Union Pacific took the Big Boy on a tour in July and August of 2019 in what was called “The Great Race Across the Midwest.” C. Vision Productions covers a part of this tour from Mason City, Iowa, up to the Twin Cities and Twin Ports in Minnesota, then through Wisconsin, down to Chicago and across Illinois into Iowa. 16 videographers were on hand to document this giant locomotive from both the ground and the air!

As an added bonus, we also feature a chartered photo freight with restored Soo Line high hood GP7, number five fifty-nine on the Osceola and St. Croix Valley Railway in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Two classic train locomotives provide great entertainment that you don’t want to miss!
