This is the only place in the world to see both the largest steam engine and the largest diesel locomotive ever to ride the rails. The Union Pacific’s 594-ton “Big Boy” 4014 steam-powered engine shares the spotlight with the Union Pacific Centennial DD40X diesel-powered locomotive, which measures nearly 100 feet in length.

The 4014 was reacquired by Union Pacific and is currently on its way to Wyoming for a restoration project that will return it to operational status.
