Default OT: UP to restore Big Boy 4014 to Operation

At least it's about steam though! Unbelievably, the Union Pacific Railroad has purchased back one of its Big Boy Locomotives, the one in Southern California, 4014. They expect a three to five year restoration to operation!

I figured H@@l would freeze over before this would happen, so I hold out much hope for our beloved Delta Queen!
