Tracking a Steam Locomotive

UP's No. 844

I read today in the NP Telegraph it is possible to track UP’s historic stam locomotive, No. 844 on its journey back to Cheyenne, Wyo. The locomotive has been on a tour to celebrate the railroad’s history and heritage and it is returning home. UP placed a Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) transmitter in one of the railcars that travels with No. 844. Click here to track No. 844. No. 844 will stop in North Platte On Wednesday, May 31, 2006 at about 1:30 p.m. and leave on Thursday morning. The schedule for the “South Central Express Heritage Tour 2006” is here.
