The pride and joy of the Railroad Bronies must now leave it's home and travel back to it's birthplace for restoration!
Before it's gone, we want to bid it farewell. The good news is that it will return for the 100th Fairplex Fair in the year 2022. This meetup is for all rail enthusiasts to show up, take a couple of pics and be a part of history in the making.
Final travel preparations will be made in Colton over the next few months before No. 4014 departs for Cheyenne. The public is invited to view Big Boy No. 4014 in Colton yard on February 1-2, and 8-9, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. All visitors should access the rail yard at 19100 Slover Ave., Bloomington, Calif. Visitors will be permitted in the display area for No. 4014 only. There will be no other rail yard access.
We recommend arriving early (if you want to arrive earlier then be my guest) so that we can get some pictures while standing next to it. The Big Boy is a huge celebrity for rail enthusiasts so expect a large crowd of fans there. We want to beat all of them there and hog the Big Boy for the time being.
