4-8-8-4 Bigboy #4023
Kenefick Park
Omaha, NE

Bigboy Locomotive #4023

Bigboy #4023 on display at Kenefick Park near the Union Pacific headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska. Despite sitting outside, #4023 is freshly painted and looks well cared for. #4023 was slated to be moved to a new indoor display at the new Omaha Convention Center. However, after #4023 was moved to a temporary location at the Durham Western Heritage Museum, the convention center display was canceled. The DWHM has no long term plans for #4023, so she may move out of Omaha.

Update—Bigboy #4023 has been moved in late 2005 to the new Kenefick Park near the Omaha Zoo. The site sits on a side hill near the Interstate 80 freeway just as you cross from Iowa heading into Nebraska, and it is a spectacular sight to see when lit up at night.
