Big Boy - Back in Steam DVD covers the 1941-1959 history, 2014-2019 restoration, and May 2019 inaugural runs of Union Pacific Big Boy 4-8-8-4 No. 4014 on its original operating territory between Cheyenne, Wyo., and Ogden, Utah, across famous Sherman Hill and Wasatch Grade. One of the world’s largest and most powerful steam locomotives (1.2 million pounds, 7,000 horsepower), No. 4014 will be the first Big Boy to run in 60 years! Trains has covered all aspects of this steam locomotive legend, and we’ll have four teams on the ground to cover its inaugural runs.

You’ll see and learn about:

• Big Boy history
• The seven surviving Big Boys
• How UP rebuilt No. 4014
• Its historic trip to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the transcontinental railroad and doubleheader with 4-8-4 No. 844

It’s all in Big Boy - Back in Steam, only from Trains!

There are now many Big Boy dvds out on the market. This is the 2nd one I have purchased. This program is a thorough program in the history off the Big Boys as well as the construction process of this one. There are many many runbys featured as well as the Ogden ceremony in detail. Trains had the best front row seat for this event as they put a lot into this production. You can go out and buy other Big Boy programs that are available but I think those programs will be largely redundant to this one albeit with some small differences. Trains did a great job and the picture quality is very clear. If you want to get more Big Boy dvds, I would wait until there are programs covering other territory other than what was covered in May.

HOWEVER it is a good value still

And excellent video. Complete story of it's retirement and resurrection. Beautiful footage of trip to Utah and excellent narration. It's almost as good as being there. It almost gives you goosebumps when the giant is awakened. You leave with a feeling of the magnitude of this accomplishment and the pain the workers must have been through to accomplish it. Congratulations on a job that was said it couldn't and wouldn't be done. Thank you Union Pacific. You make all railroaders proud.
