The 1.2 million pound steam locomotive is set to enter the national rail network for the first time in 52 years. Towed by modern diesel-electric Union Pacific freight locomotives, No. 4014 will depart Fairplex, home of the L.A. County Fairgrounds in Pomona, Calif., and travel 56 miles on Metrolink and Union Pacific track to the Union Pacific rail yard in Colton, Calif. A member of Union Pacific's Train Town USA Registry, the city of Colton is a fitting location for final preparations for No. 4014's 1,293-mile trek to Cheyenne.</p>
