  • Steam Locomotive No. 844 visits Boise

    Train lovers call it the “Living Legend” — Union Pacific steam locomotive 844. It was built in 1944, the last of its kind before diesel replaced steam power. Though it changed from running as a high-speed passenger engine to freight service, the locomotive never officially retired and has been part of the Union Pacific fleet of locomotives for 73 years. It has been to Boise a few times, but not since 2010. A city celebration featuring No. 844 marking the 92nd anniversary of the iconic depot will be held on Sunday, April 23.
