The World’s Largest Steam Locomotive in the Alamo City

The newly restored Union Pacific #4014 “The Big Boy” is touring the UP System to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the transcontinental railroad and is making a stop in San Antonio. The locomotive will be on public display right next to San Antonio’s Steam Locomotive. For public safety reasons, there will not be any cab tours of the Big Boy, but the members of the Friends of the SP794, a division of the San Antonio Railroad Heritage Museum, will be available for SP #794 cab tours and answer questions.
