Steam Oddity - UP Northern On The Move
Author: cdub

Nope, this isn't about the 844 on a past excursion. It's about sister Northern 814. Back on October 19, 1999, she was being moved across town in Council Bluffs from Dodge Park to Rails West Museum (former RI depot). Here she is crossing the Indian Creek on 16th Ave, and up ahead is her tender. They had to hire a house moving outfit to get the job done. I think top speed was 1 or 2 mph.

Union Pacific Northern #833 wa moved in a similar fashion from Pioneer Park in Salt Lake City to the Utah State Railroad Museum in Ogden, UT also in 1999. Here's a cut 'n' paste link:

What KIND of tender does the 814 have? the original semi-Vanderbilt, or was it retrofitted with a Centipede?
