4449-844 Doubleheader: Introduction

I originally posted the 4449-844 Doubleheader page on my website on July 7, 2006 and last updated it on March 26, 2009.


On May 19, 2007, Union Pacific's FEF-3 Class 4-8-4 steam locomotive #844 was scheduled to pull the Puget Sound Steam Special, an excursion train between Tacoma and Everett, Washington, as a fund raiser for the John W. Baringer III National Railroad Library at the University of Missouri in St. Louis. The schedule was in place well in advance for #844 to be in the Pacific Northwest as part of the Pacific Northwest Portland Rose Heritage Tour, though by mid-April the "official" announcement had yet to be made.

Here is a list of the following posts about this event:
