Train enthusiasts enjoy U.P's No. 844 Locomotive

From KOTA:  Train enthusiasts enjoy U.P's No. 844 Locomotive

 Dozens of train enthusiasts flocked to Gering to see the last steam locomotive Union Pacific built.

The legendary No. 844 is touring the nation as part of U.P's 150th Anniversary.

Many people came out Thursday afternoon to the Gering rail yard to see the massive steam engine in person.
Sandra Ayala says she brought her three boys out because they love playing with model trains.

She says having them see the real deal would be a truly unique experience for them.

"They've been excited about seeing the steam roller, so it was very exciting and brought them out here."

The locomotive left town this morning, and is heading east toward the Nebraska State Fair.
