    Union Pacific Steam Club Update No. 12 - Apr. 29, 2020

    In a special video message to Union Pacific Steam Club members, Sr. Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer Scott Moore announced that the planned 2020 steam excursion has been cancelled. Moore pointed to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and necessary social distancing measures as the country continues to recover from the pandemic.

    "But I'm here to tell you, we're committed to 2021," Moore said. "We saw last year how much America loves the Big Boy, and what it can do as the giant, rolling ambassador of the Union Pacific Railroad."

    View the entire video message as well as a special message from UP Steam Team's Ed Dickens about the status of No. 4014 here at YouTube.

    That's all for now. Be safe, and we'll see you trackside,

    I got the email from the UP Steam Club about this last night. Not surprised that this happened.

    If only all the Covid-19 virus could be corralled the firebox of the 4014 would be a good place to incinerate it.
