Amazing they could do enough work at West Colton to allow that sort of speed.

I'm recalling the recent travails of 844 where Cheyenne screwed-up rod bearings, crippling it mid-excursion. Fingers crossed, 4014!

UP must really loves there steam engines, not only do they send SD70M 4884 to pull her out of the museum, they send SD70m 4014 to send take her home with 4884. Wonder if Ahearn's going to do a 4014 move special run since they do all the engines in N and HO.
Which ever side of the track I am on is the right side.
