IT'S OFFICIAL ...

The Union Pacific is going to rebuild locomotive 4014, a "Big Boy" loco. --- Take a look !!!


EVER SEE A TRAIN LAY NEW TRACK OVER THE REMOVED EXISTING TRACK? ...

This is what is happening from Chicago to St. Louis for the high speed rail.

People were stopping along the highway taking pictures.

Here is a link to a video that shows how the concrete ties and rail are put in place.
The road bed was raised 13 inches to accommodate the new high speed rail line between St. Louis, MO and Chicago, IL.
There are only two of these track laying machines in the world, one here and one in Europe.

I wonder what all those laborers who laid the first cross country tracks would think if they could see this!
