UP 844 to Little Rock, Arkansas
Author: VERNON1946

Does anyone know, what the latest news is, on UP'S 844 Journey To Little ROck, Arkansas? AND IT'S TRAIN? And what route it will take there, after leaving KCUS (Kansas City Union Station), on or around May 29, 2011'? All information very much appreciated...Thank You....

I'm anxiously awaiting this info soon myself, as I'll be driving to and from the NRHS convention at that time. The UP website says a complete schedule will be available on April 27th, so just a few more days to go!

There is also a map and some other items on in the media kit listed on the page below.

The expectation is that the trip will cross Missouri on the River Sub--Lexington and Boonville, MO. UP3985 crossed Missouri last fall on the Sedalia Sub; keeping in mind that the River Sub is eastbound and the Sedalia Sub is westbound, I see that as the only option.

Dave, you are DRIVING to the convention? How many miles, about 2700 one way?

You mean the NRHS convention isn't at Tacoma, Missouri?

Yep, driving, trying to hit as many steam engines as possible along the way. In the shortline world it's hard to get time off, but once you do, it's best to take as much as you can!
