The National Railroad Museum is proud to have the only A4 Class locomotive in the United States. This British locomotive was renamed for Dwight D. Eisenhower after World War II. Along with this engine are two London and North Eastern Railroad cars that were converted for Eisenhower’s use during the war.
Union Pacific #4017 – Big Boy
Weighing in at 1.1 million pounds and measuring nearly half a football field in length, the Big Boy locomotives were designed to haul heavy freight for the Union Pacfic railroad over the mountainous regions of Utah and Wyoming.
Originally 25 of these giants were constructed from 1941-1944. They roamed the rails until 1959. Union Pacific donated eight of them to museums across the U.S. The Big Boy preserved at the National Railroad Museum®is the only one housed inside a climate-controlled facility.
