Remarks & Notes 
Union Pacific No. 4012
Looking good in the neighborhood!

Union Pacific No. 4012, built in 1941 by the American Locomotive Company (ALCO) of Schenectady, New York, is one of eight preserved Union Pacific Big Boy locomotives. No. 4012 was retired in 1962 and donated to Steamtown, U.S.A, in Bellow Falls, Vermont, and later moved to Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton, Pennsylvania, where it remains today.

On October 2, 2019, No. 4012 was removed from public display and began a cosmetic restoration, including asbestos removal and repainting. The cosmetic restoration was completed on May 5, 2021, and the locomotive was returned to static display, but rather than being returned to the yard, it now sits at the entrance to Steamtown on a curve where its articulation can be better appreciated. She looks factory new!
