Steamtown National Historic Site


On Wednesday, May 5, 2021 employees and volunteers at Steamtown National Historic Site returned the Union Pacific "Big Boy" No. 4012 to static exhibition following an extended cosmetic restoration. This timelapse video shows the final moments as the engine chugs along to its new home.

Due to the nature of the event and the staffing required to safely relocate this engine, social distancing was not always possible and all participants were wearing face masks.
