Building Union Pacific 844


Building Union Pacific 844 The Birth of the FEF-3 Steam Class

Union Pacific Railroad steam locomotive No. 844 continues to be familiar to generations of rail enthusiasts. When erected in December 1944, this 4-8-4 type was the last steam locomotive built for Union Pacific. However, until now, few details were available regarding the day-by-day activity that was involved in the actual construction of 844. This book looks at newly-discovered information about the engine's construction by the American Locomotive Company of Schenectady, N.Y., why it came to be built, and how it survived to become a "living legend" for Union Pacific.
