I don't get why people have to hate on Union Pacific. They could have just said F you to the big boy and not restored it. Instead, the company spent millions on equipment, parts, and labor to restore the locomotive.
Rather than spending only about 25% of that on continuing maintenance and the FRA mandated 15 year inspection on Challenger 3985.
What happened to 3985?
Absolutely NOTHING! The current manager wanted #4014, and subsequently stuffed poor 3985 into the last stall of the roundhouse, back in the winter of 2010/2011.
Do you think a triple header with 4014, 3985, and 844 is possible?
