I just learned the Union Pacific Big Boy 4014 will be making a new tour in August.
Here’s a link to the tentative schedule:

Very helpful. Sadly, no Chicago this year. Two years back, we got our turn.

Here are a few photos from spending Saturday in Cajon Pass:

The late running Southwest Chief heads down main 3 as it makes its way to Los Angeles.

A Union Pacific unit train makes it way down the pass on the Palmdale cut-off while an eastbound BNSF container train heads up BNSF main 1.

This was from 2004. Metra Commuter Rail to Chicago. I'm not sure what town/city I took this from. It was near Bolingbrook.
