Building Union Pacific 844: The Birth of the FEF-3 Steam Class by John E. Bush

The construction photographs were taken by American Locomotive Company, builder of the FEF-3 class. The appendix includes copies of correspondence between Union Pacific and Alco.

Union Pacific Railroad steam locomotive No. 844 continues to be familiar to generations of rail enthusiasts. When erected in December 1944, this 4-8-4 type was the last steam locomotive built for Union Pacific. However, until now, few details were available regarding the day-by-day activity that was involved in the actual construction of 844.

This book looks at newly-discovered information about the engine's construction by the American Locomotive Company of Schenectady, N.Y., why it came to be built, and how it survived to become a 'living legend' for Union Pacific.
