Blast from the Past — Union Pacific 844

Pulling into Walsenburg, CO.


Union Pacific 844

I’ve posted quite a few pictures of trains this week. All of the previous posts have been from the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden, Colorado. But a couple years ago (also in November, coincidentally), I saw the Union Pacific 844 in the wild. I was driving back to Colorado Springs from Trinidad, having visited my mom for the weekend. Seeing trains wasn’t anything new, but when I was passing the engine, I noticed it wasn’t just any train engine. It took me a long time to get home that day because I kept leap frogging the train to take photos, but I think the pictures were worth it.
