I named my 55 prop project, the BIG BOY and in celebration of its creation and inspiration, I now post the official UP Big Boy announcement.
(there is a link to the prop project in my signature)

I do not know anything about details, (like will it run entirely on its own power, or pushed by diesel, will there be access to engine, etc)

Stoke the oil, stoak the coal! This girl runs on OIL!
The Great Race to Ogden – No. 4014

Big Boy No. 4014 will leave Cheyenne May 4 following a 9:30 a.m. MT christening ceremony at the historic Cheyenne Depot,
and arrive in Ogden for the May 9 celebratory event culminating in the Big Boy joining with The Living Legend No. 844.
The celebratory event will be streamed live May 9 at 10:30 a.m. MT via the Union Pacific Facebook page.

The Big Boy will make several brief stops in communities on its way to Ogden.

  • Wow! What a project! Way more complicated than anything Propeller-related. Are you one of the guys in the group photo?

    I was not involved with the Unions Pacifics Big Boy No 4014 Restoration. I wish I was, since I have enough milling machine and milling machine retro fitting experience...

    I only named my 55 propeller project after the big boy due to the way it runs and uses a master prop, a slave prop (similar to a tender on a locomotive) and all the sub-slave props, as cars .. which all run on the tx/rx rail lines..

    If I could have helped them with the machine milling and making custom retrofits for milling machines, plus doing the g-code/cad of the parts, I would have loved it, but they never advertised positions for this huge big boy 4014 restoration project.

    I am just a fan of the UP steam engine, that is all.

    These restored LADIES, run on OIL.

    UP #844... 484 steam engine.




    Here the 4884 steam engine UP #4014 is taken to be restored in 2015.
    She will join her little sister #844 in the UP's restored steam engine, oil fired roster.
