This video of the Union Pacific Living Legend #844 was taken at Kirkwood, MO on 10/18/2016 during its brief stop on the “Trek to Tennessee” trip.
The first half of the video is the train arriving into Kirkwood Station at Kirkwood Missouri. This shot angle was taken at the west end of the station parking lot along the Union Pacific railroad lines.
The second half of the video starts with a short near the station with the engine sitting while people admire and observe this grand old beauty. The scene then leads into the engineer preparing to leave the station and finally leaving the station headed to its final destination for the day – St. Louis.

Please pardon the instability of my camera as I did not have my tripod because of the crowds.
