Union Pacific 3985 "The Challenger" the world's largest operating steam locomotive sites outside the UP yard in Cheyenne , WY. After derailing in Laramie in April 2009. She was suppose to make a test run back to Laramie, WY on Sept 1st but got canceled after breaking some engine stay bolts - the run was rescheduled for the next day - but i hear she will make the circus train run from Cheyenne to Denver in October ?

I was thinking part of the reason for the Big Boy was so when one had to go down for it's 15-year inspection that would still keep two locos available. That and stomping all over the rebirth of the Norfolk Southern steam program. =D
