VIDEO: UP #844 leaving St. Louis, June 4

Union Pacific's 4-8-4 steam locomotive #844 made a stop in St. Louis starting on Thursday, and departed today en route to Little Rock, Arkansas. The train will arrive in Cape Girardeau, Missouri later today for another day-long stop. Union Pacific regularly operates two of its restored steam locomotives on special trips throughout the year, but it is somewhat rare for St. Louis to be part of the excursions. The other UP steam locomotive, "Challenger" #3985, made a stop in St. Louis last October, which I also had the privilege to see.

I chose two photo locations this morning, South 4th Street downtown at the MacArthur Bridge and a stretch of track between Dupo and Columbia, IL.
