The Big Boy is scheduled to arrive in Kansas City's Union Station 6:30 pm on Sun, Nov 17. If you want to see Big Boy in action, better to watch as it slowly rolls through one of the towns on this schedule:

For example, the train will roll through Garnett from 1:30 pm to 1:45 pm. Several other towns on the schedule.




Round out your railroad experience with a tour of the Experience the Union Pacific Rail Car on Nov 18.

Through sound, images and interactive technology, rail fans will see how Union Pacific is building America in their communities and throughout the world.
