Join a Park Ranger or a Volunteer on a short walk to learn more about one of the heaviest steam locomotives ever built, Union Pacific "Big Boy" #4012! This 600-ton locomotive was engineered and built in 1941, primarily for use in the mountains of Wyoming and Utah (Weather-permitting - this is an outdoor program.)
(TOUR NOTE: This is NOT a locomotive cab tour! For safety reasons, visitor accessible equipment is located in the Museum Core Complex.)
Departs from the Visitor Center. Included in the Park Entrance Fee.
