Union Pacific Challenger No. 3985 was designed by Union Pacific and built in 1943 by the American Locomotive Company.  It is one of 105 Challengers built for Union Pacific between 1936 and 1943 and is the largest and most powerful operating steam locomotive today.  UP 3985 operated in its last "regular" train service in 1957. The locomotive was retired about 1962 and after many years of storage it was placed on outdoor display.  Beginning in 1979 a group of Union Pacific employee-volunteers started work on overhauling the locomotive, and it was returned to operational condition in 1981.  It is currently being used for excursion trains and mainline freight moves. The top speed is about 70 mph.
