Many thanks for keeping us up to date on this, I for one, appreciate it greatly.....
This time lubricators ....
Seems like the move time is getting closer -- panel track is being laid ---
Really appreciating the updates - plse keep them coming!
The restoration of this locomotive is surely a landmark event in railway preservation history.
Hopefully this will help whet your appetites, found on youtube!
Great video there Corbs -- will be great to see one back in steam in a few years
A side view of the loco showing the rods removed
Interesting early on in the video it say that 'locomotives were rarely endowed with grace of line' well in the US maybe, but I feel that in the UK appearance was taken into consideration, untidy clutter was hidden to keep lines clean and purposeful.
Crackin' video Corbs - would love to see a BigBoy in action - pity they don't fit over Shap!

Big Boy #4014’s move across the fairgrounds parking lot may begin as early as Thursday, November 14th. This move will take several days, as panel track sections are installed and removed in a leap-frog process. This move’s timing is subject to many factors that can change without prior notice.
Its move on the rail lines of Metrolink and Union Pacific, from the fairgrounds to U.P.’s West Colton facility is being developed to occur in early to mid December.
Its subsequent move from West Colton to Cheyenne will be released by Union Pacific.
Latest info on its move from Pomona Ca.
Many thanks for keeping us in the picture.
This time explaining how the panel track is laid out -- she will move soon .
This is the latest on the preparations to move the loco ..

These short video clips are a brilliant way of keeping everybody up to date making a permanent record of how it was done.
