844 Steam Engine Booklet

This 844 Steam Engine Booklet is a photo collection of the last steam engine built for the Union Pacific.The 844 is the only steam locomotive never retired by a North American Class I railroad and has been completely restored by the Union Pacific Railroad. Hailed as Union Pacific’s “Living Legend,” the engine is widely known among railroad enthusiasts for its excursion runs, especially over Union Pacific’s fabled crossing of Sherman Hill between Cheyenne and Laramie, Wyoming and running passengers from Green River, Wyoming to Pocatello, Idaho.

The 844 has a wheel configuration of 4-8-4 which is 4 smaller wheels in front, 8 large wheels in the middle and 4 smaller wheels in the back. Designed as a passenger engine to burn coal it was converted to run on fuel oil. It could safely handle 120 mph speed with its 4,000 to 5,000 draw horsepower .
