I'm a little dissapointed too.....
Author: Txtrainman60

Regarding 4014 and it's Texas travels, I STILL don't understand there reasoning for bye-passing Fort Worth! If they can negotiate the backing up and trackage in Hearn, I sure don't see Ft Worth being a problem! They could have headed east on the old Mopac at Tower 55 and wound up in pretty much the same planned locations. Not to mention giving A LOT more people (and employees) a chance to see it!!!

Probably didn't want to take the risk of going on the ground in enemy territory with all of the associated bad PR!

Um...perhaps you two might want to look at an updated Fort Worth map. U.P practically OWNS FW these days!!! If your talking about BNSF, there pretty much an after thought!

I do believe that BNSF has some office space in Fort Worth.

UP does have a physical presence that is larger than BNSF but both have a lot of traffic thru Ft Worth.  I am surprised that they did not choose to come from Hearne, to Ennis  and then to Ft Worth over the old SP. Then east to dallas and Longview.  Maybe they were worried about the curves at T55 to go east.  I know 3985 was ok on them but maybe 4014 is different.

Well....I've since found out (from a reliable source) WHY 4014 won't be coming to cowtown. And believe me, it's a crock of shit! It seems the last time either 844 or 3985 came thru smoking (as most steam engines do) the city of Fort Worth pitched a damn fit and said never again! Now that sure is odd as hell when the whole damn state of California pretty much let U.P go where ever they wanted!!!!!

Uh, isn't there some external combustion thing that runs through their prized stockyards?

You don't understand. It was from a "reliable source."

Cows? I understand their farts cause global warming. (Stop cow made global warming!)

Was it leaked from the House Intelligence Committee?

Farts get the blame, but I understand that it
is actually the belching that goes along with
cud chewing.

Maybe re-title this thread " Big Boy turned away from Fart Worth due to cow gas.." ??
