The Union Pacific #844 is the only never-retired steam locomotive in the USA.

AboutEdit

Built in 1944, the #844 was the last steam locomotive for the Union Pacific Railroad. The engine had a normal career, however, when the end of steam came for the UP in 1959, it was decided by the Union Pacific that the engine shall still operate in excursion service. It still does, making it the only steam locomotive in the United States to never be retired.
