Smoke Filled Sky



February 8, 2004. Buffalo, Kansas.

Union Pacific 3985 fills the cold Kansas sky with smoke as the Super Bowl XXXVIII Special heads north toward Kansas City, Missouri. The train would stay over night in Kansas City before moving on to its next stop on the return leg of the Super Bowl XXXVIII Special tour. Eventually the locomotive would return home to Cheyenne, Wyoming where UP's heritage steam locomotives are based out of.
