BACKGROUND AND HISTORY

Big Boy Locomotives
Big Boy was the name of the Union Pacific Railroad's steam locomotives, built between 1941 and 1944 by American Locomotive Company (Alco). The 25 Big Boys were the only locomotives to have the 4-8-8-4 wheel arrangement, which combined two sets of eight driving wheels with a four-wheel leading truck for stability entering curves and a four-wheel trailing truck to support the large firebox.
Twenty-five Big Boys were built, in two groups of ten and one of five. All burned coal, and had large grates to burn the low-quality Wyoming coal from mines owned by the railroad.
Postwar increases in the price of both coal and labor and the efficiency of diesel-electric motive power foretold a limited life for the Big Boys, but they were among the last steam locomotives taken out of service.
