    Trains, no planes, no automobiles

    Union Pacific 4014, aka "Big Boy", the world's largest steam locomotive, is touring the Midwest. According to WCCO:

    It will be at Union Depot in St. Paul from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, then it will arrive in Duluth Friday morning at 8:30 a.m.

    I'm hoping to catch it in West Chicago next weekend.

    I believe it's also the last remaining working Big Boy thanks to extensive restoration efforts.
