4014 is on the move
Author: czuleget

The train is pulling out of Ogden as I speak here now. With an on-time 8 o’clock departure.

Thanks for the update.
Using the UP tracking, and the schedule, looks like a scheduled stop at Morgan, UT.
Anyone know if Trains Magazine is doing their live video feed eastbound?
Thanks
Pat

Yes, but very spotty coverage due to cell service in Weber and Echo Canyons.

Still in Morgan...not sure what the delay is.  Scheduled departure was 0925.  Lots of people on the tracks east of town 🤬

Nice video on Trains Facebook (App) page. Latest from about 1 hour ago They are moving along at a good clip, with about 3 or 4 additional passenger cars than West bound trip. Not sure of location, maybe Weber or Echo canyon.

I had to install the Facebook App to view the videos on the Trains magazine page., that's how I've been viewing updates since this all started. But it's free to view.

You might have to create a Facebook account if you aren't already a member of Facebook, just enter a false birth date like I did years ago.

Simply un-install the app later after all this is over.

I think you can also of course just sign up for an online subscription to Trains Magazine online, and pay the subscription, not sure if there is a free trial offer, But I may also subscribe to Trains anyway, to help pay for all thier efforts during this event, and as kind of a thanks for thier coverage of this whole Big Boy event, including 5 years ago.

Hey Jim, I’m curious if you always give a false birthdate, or just on Facebook.

The ironic thing is Facebook probably already knows your birthday ;-)

Any indication of the size of crowds, chasers?

Looks like a lot of steam still escaping that left front cylinder, per the excellent Trains video I just watched.  They were working the engine pretty good in that sequence - and too many people were WAY too close to the tracks!  Hopefully they can make it back to Cheyenne without anybody being hit.

It sucks people have to do this, almost as bad with 844 last year and what happened, hope nothing bad doesn't happen!
