Because It's Friday, Extra Edition

A Union Pacific video about one aspect of preparing Big Boy 4014 for movement to the steam shops in Wyoming.

There are other videos on UP's YouTube channel. One of the interesting things is that the folks who had the locomotive on display kept the bearings greased. Some folks apparently never lost hope that the locomotive would steam again some day.

They're having to do much of the same work to other locomotives on display, as they have to be moved to allow them to remove 4014.
