Steam Locomotive No. 844 is the last steam locomotive built for Union Pacific Railroad.
It was delivered in 1944. A high-speed passenger engine, it pulled such widely known trains as the
Overland Limited, Los Angeles Limited, Portland Rose and Challenger.
When diesels took over all passenger train duties, No. 844 was placed in freight service in Nebraska
from 1957 to 1959. It was saved from being scrapped in 1960, and held for special service.
The engine has run hundreds of thousands of miles as Union Pacific’s ambassador of goodwill. It has
made appearances at Expo ’74 in Spokane, the 1981 opening of the California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento, the 1984 World’s Fair in New Orleans and the 50th Anniversary Celebration of Los Angeles Union Station in 1989.

Steam Locomotive Heading to St. Louis

Omaha, Neb., March 25, 2011 – Union Pacific Railroad's steam team has established the overnight and display locations for The Little Rock Express as part of Union Pacific's Great Excursion Adventure - You Route the Steam contest. More than 175,000 votes were cast for four different routes, with the Little Rock Express defeating the Tuscola Turn, Baton Rouge Rambler and Boise Express.
 
Also, Union Pacific's legendary steam locomotive No. 844 will be pulling The Little Rock Express Tour instead of the previously announced steam locomotive No. 3985. The decision to switch the locomotives was made since No. 3985 was in Missouri last fall pulling the Missouri River Eagle to help Sedalia, Mo., celebrate the community's Sesquicentennial.
 
No. 844 will depart Cheyenne, its home base, May 27 making overnight stops in:

  • North Platte, Neb.;
  • Marysville and Coffeyville, Kan.;
  • Kansas City, Jefferson City, St. Louis, Cape Girardeau, Mo.;
  • Bald Knob, North Little Rock and Van Buren, Ark.; and
  • Omaha, Neb.
The locomotive also will be on public display for at least one day in the following cities before arriving back in Cheyenne in late June:

  • Kansas City, Jefferson City, St. Louis, Cape Girardeau, Mo.;
  • Bald Knob and North Little Rock, Ark.; and
  • Omaha, Neb.
The Little Rock Express portion of the tour begins May 29 with the locomotive arriving in Kansas City, Mo., and concludes June 9, after a display day in North Little Rock. 
 
A detailed Little Rock Express Tour schedule that will include the dates, times and location the tour will be in various cities, along with cities where the Little Rock Express will make whistle stops, will be available April 27.
 
Contest participants who voted for the Little Rock Express will be entered into a drawing for the opportunity to ride a brief segment of the tour. As stated in the contest rules, no tickets will be sold and general public train rides will not be available as part of the tour.
