Largest steam and largest deisel locomotives ever built


Pomona, California (CA), US
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.
