    Big Boy was the name of the Union Pacific Railroad's 4000-class 4-8-8-4 articulated steam locomotives, built between 1941 and 1944 by American Locomotive Company (Alco). The 25 Big Boys were the only locomotives to have the 4-8-8-4 wheel arrangement, which combined two sets of eight driving wheels with a four-wheel leading truck for stability entering curves and a four-wheel trailing truck to support the large firebox.

    The last official run of a Big Boy locomotive was when?

    The correct date is July 21st 1959. It appears looking at the poll that I mistyped so no one picked the correct answer. :hide:

    I noted that too, but gave you the benefit of the doubt. I've been to the Big Boy in Omaha. It is impressive.
