“Big Boy” rolls through Kansas

The last of the world’s largest steam engines is roaring across the U.S. on a cross country tour.

It’s called “Big Boy,” and it made a stop in Neodesha, Kansas Sunday morning.

Union Pacific took delivery on Engine 4014 in December of 1941.

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the transcontinental railroad, the 600 ton steam engine was restored for fans to witness on its trek across the southwest.
