Album Info:Once again for our family vacation, we found ourselves once again out west. However, something that was a little different this year was while on the scheduled dates, the newly restored UP 4014, the Big Boy, was making its trip across the Midwest. Of course, we had to schedule at least one day out there to see it! We settled in Jefferson Iowa and the rest is history! Enjoy!

UP 7940
Title:  UP 7940
Description:  This year for vacation, my family and I planned on a week up in the Mintac region of Minnesota to view the sights and sounds of Iron Range Mining (and of course, Taconite Trains. However, while looking at our schedule, it was apparent that UP 4014 was going to make an appearance out in Boone IA the day before we planned on leaving. Of course, we didnt want to miss out on that, so we scheduled our trip for a day earlier and went out to Iowa. We stayed at the Super 8 Motel in Jefferson, and began the next day trackside at Grand Junction to view the Big Boy Pass, then we would chase it to Boone. The first train of the day was this westbound manifest led by 3 Armour Yellow GEs.

UP 4014
Title:  UP 4014
Description:  Of course, couldnt just end the chase there in Grand Island! We made it through the absolutely horrendous chase traffic to Boone to catch the train yarding and sitting for photo ops. I wish I would have gotten it coming across the Kate Shelly bridge, but I couldnt figure out how to get back to it, so I settled for the generic wedges at Boone.
