It will go from San Antonio, TX to New Orleans, LA the week of April 22. It's scheduled to be at Fiesta San Antonio April 20-22 and scheduled to be in New Orleans April 28 and 29.

http://up150.com/events/fiesta-san-antonio
http://up150.com/events/louisiana-bicentennial-celebration
Union Pacific is proud to participate in Fiesta® San Antonio as part of the railroad’s 150th Anniversary, celebrating the city’s rich and diverse culture. The festival boasts more than 100 official events – parades, festivals, concerts, coronations, athletic events, art exhibits and more.

On Friday, April 20, Union Pacific will help kick off the official start of Fiesta® at The Alamo with a check presentation to the Fiesta Commission Foundation.

On Saturday, April 21, UP’s historic steam locomotive 844 and souvenir car, are on display from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., as well as the railroad’s traveling exhibit, known as “The Promontory.” The Promontory includes several artifacts, including railroad construction tools and remnants from UP’s earliest days, as well as stereo cards from Union Pacific’s one-of-a-kind collection and a 65” touch screen highlighting many of the communities the car will be visiting in 2012

From New Orleans they go to El Reno, OK

Looking forward to seeing it! I missed seeing it come through KC last year, but I plan on catching it this month!

Brad, do you know when it's leaving North Little Rock? I'm guessing it's going to San Antonio afterwards? ...Or something like that?

North Little Rock, AR March 30th - April 1st - Steam present
San Antonio, TX April 28th - Steam present
New Orleans, LA April 29th - 30th - Steam present
El Reno, OK May 4th - 5th - Steam present

We are missing a whole month of UP 844 events... I wonder where!

OK, not to sound stupid, but what is a "cannon car"??
As far as I know, the train will be taking Civil War re-enactors to commemorate the anniversary of the Battle of Shiloh. The "cannon car" will be carrying the replica cannons to be used during the re-enactment.

on the 27th of march when they're parked in STL for the night, is that a "public" display (alias photographs) and will the suvenier stand be open?
