4014 and the "Great Race Across the Southwest"
Author: typebangin

Here's a trimmed down version of the video I posted to YT with clips from Union Pacific's "Great Race Across the Southwest" with Big Boy #4014.  I chased from Las Vegas, NV to El Paso, TX (October 8th to 20th) as UP 4014 traveled down the Los Angeles and Salt Lake, over Cajon Pass, and then east on the former Southern Pacific Sunset Route.  This video has clips from the California, Arizona, and New Mexico.  The last scene shows the Rail Giants excursion departing Barstow, CA on Sunday October 13th.

Excellent video !

I guess I don't get the last scene with the Big Boy and two high horsepower diesels on 23? passenger cars. Is the profile that rugged ?

Anyway, spectacular work !

The 23 car train was the Rail Giants excursion which operated over Cajon Pass, including many miles of 2+% grade.

James, once again you have done a superb job of capturing your subject on video.  This time 4014 in her various train makeups.  Thank you for sharing.
