does it still operate? looks like that rail is "laid" on a parking lot lol...

the Pere Marquette 1225 (Lima 2-8-4 Berkshire, THE polar express) just went through its 15yr tear down/inspection at a cost of about $900,000. i cant imagine what 4014 would cost for the same...

It does not operate at this time. UP is moving it to Cheyenne Wyoming for restoration.

That is indeed a parking lot. It will soon be put on the MetroLink line for its move to Colton and then on to Wyoming.

Do they intend to restore all the way up to running condition? I've seen lots of pictures of these beasts, but would love to see one in action.

Those are stacks of logs for the lumber or plywood mill. The lines across the top of the stacks are sprinklers to keep the logs from drying out before they go into the mill.

Steve is correct, in the background is Sierra Pacific Industries sawmill where they produce cedar fence boards and rails.
