In the center of the UNION PACIFICâ€™s route network is the steeply graded line between Cheyenne and Laramie on Sherman Hill. It goes through the Wasatch Rocky Mountains and on west to the Great Salt Lake. At the end of the 1930s the freight trains on this route became longer and faster and required time-consuming, costly doubleheading with several locomotives. A specially designed new locomotive with immense dimensions was planned to relieve this situation. The necessary high power output and the correspondingly high weight had to be translated to the rails on an articulated locomotive frame. The American Locomotive Co. (ALCO) developed a colossus with a 4-8-8-4 wheel arrangement, with a service weight of over 500 metric tons and a length of 40.5 meters or 132 feet 10-1/2 inches. This giant was respectfully named the â€Big Boyâ€ in ALCOâ€™s erecting halls. This name became the embodiment for the largest steam locomotive in the world. A total of 25 Big Boys were built in 1941 and 1944. They were in use around 20 years in Utah and Wyoming and each one ran over 1 million miles. Eight of the Big Boys retired from the roster at the beginning of the 1960s are still in existence. They still give you an unforgettable impression of the former size.
