Union Pacific's Steam Engine No. 844

Here comes another Arizona Centennial Signature Event.  This time, Arizonans can take a celebratory trip back in time when the historic Union Pacific Steam Locomotive Engine No. 844 traverses the state. The last time this Historic engine was in town, I also Visited it as a School field trip in my Senior year of High School, part of our Countries bicentennial celebration. In between Family Christmas Photo shoots yesterday, we noticed a very Large crowd of people parked and walking about waiting for something to go by on the railroad tracks, knowing it must have been something special, while stopped at a red light I snapped the top picture of it driving by!!!!Miss C was so happy that the train honked it's horn!!!!
Love history and the history this train has seen is quite remarkable!!!
