Steam Locomotive No. 844

Yesterday we took the kiddos to see a steam locomotive. We live pretty close to the train tracks that run through town so we were able to just walk a few blocks to see the locomotive.

It was pretty impressive and the kiddos thought it was pretty awesome to see a train that close. Makenna kept asking if we could get a ticket for her so she could ride on it.

Something interesting about Steam Locomotive No. 844 is that was the last steam locomotive built for the Union Pacific Railroad.

We purposefully planned on going to see the locomotive shortly before it departed so that we could watch it leave. It was incredibly fun to watch. Although, Makenna said it hurt her ears:)
