1) Someplace just west of Cheyenne, on the ascending grade of Sherman Hill.

2) It is close enough to Cheyenne, that if, heaven forbid, something goes wrong, you would still see her working up-grade.

How hard will the 4014 be working? Will the consist be the usual 5-8 cars? Not much of a load for a Big Boy if that's the load.

I think that is likely the sad thing about all this.  I'm guessing the chances of seeing the 4014 actually work hard is between slim and none, yet that is what the drama of steam is all about.  Black smoke from over-firing, or sanding the flues, just doesn't cut it.  A hard working steam engine is a wondrous thing, but it is hard to believe the 4014 will ever be allowed to struggle.  Hope I am wrong.

I wish to see the test trip from Cheyenne down to the Greeley Wye and back to Cheyenne. I sincerely hope it goes well.

Well, if there are a diesels in the break-in consist, maybe they will be for dynamic braking.  It worked great for the 765 more than once - put them in dynamic when you want it, and then turn them off when you don't.  That way you don't have to haul a big consist all the time.

Or rescue it after it breaks down

What would break down, that having diesels in the consist would help provide any "rescue"  assistance?
