Union Pacific's 2007 Steam Schedule....

Here's some more info about Union Pacific's plans as written in the
Colorado Time-Table.

UP Steam Shop releases tentative 2007 schedule

Union Pacific's steam shop has released for its 2007 operations. Power
for the trains will be 4-8-4 Northern No. 844 and 4-6-6-4 Challenger No. 3985
built by American Locomotive Company in 1944 and 1943 respectively. All
trips are tentative and subject to final confirmation.

Between June 21 and July 4, one of the engines will leave the shop at
Cheyenne for North Platte and Fremont, Nebraska, on original UP
trackage, then head east on the former Chicago and North-western to
Boone, Iowa. From Boone, the steam locomotive will run east to KC
Junction near Ames, Iowa, and south on the former Chicago, Rock Island
and Pacific "Spine Line" to Trenton and Kansas City, Missouri. Trenton
will celebrate its 150th Anniversary during this time. From Kansas
City, the engine will begin the return to Cheyenne with a stopover at
Marysville, Kansas, or Fairbury, Nebraska, then to North Platte and
Cheyenne. During the trip, the steam locomotive will stop for display
at population centers and past and present Up/C&NW/Rock Island
crew terminals.

Between July 19 and 23, both locomotives will operate between Cheyenne
and Denver. On July 21, the railroad is planning a doubleheader of 844
and 3985 for the 15th annual Denver Post Cheyenne Frontier Days
excursion, a Denver-Cheyenne round trip.

Beginning on August 22 and concluding August 27, UP steam will visit
the Colorado State Fair operating from Cheyenne to Denver, then
running a Denver-to Pueblo passenger trip before returning to

Union Pacific steam will also help celebrate Oklahoma's Centennial
during the month of September. Between September 9 and 30, one of the
locomotives will leave Cheyenne for North Platte and Marysville, then
to Herrington and Wichita, Kansas. From Wichita the train will head
south into Oklahoma visiting Enid, El Reno, Chickasha, and Lone Star.
Stopovers are again planned in past and present railroad terminals.
The train will return to Cheyenne via the reverse route.
