Steam to Los Angeles


Follow the Union Pacific 8444 as it departs Cheyenne to begin its journey to Los Angeles to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal. The 8444 looks fantastic as it travels through four states on its journey. Arriving in Los Angeles, the 8444 and the Southern Pacific 4449 parade into the station side by side with whistles blowing to greet the opening day crowd.

Then it's the steam event of the year! Both the UP 8444 and SP 4449 head up Cajon Pass side by side in a spectacular show of steam at its finest. Pentrex used five camera crews to provide you with the most complete coverage available of this incredible sight.
