Historic Steam Engine Coming Through Monday

Union Pacific's historic No. 844 steam locomotive will travel through Suisun City on Monday (April 20) as part of its 32-day, four-state Western Heritage Tour.

The full steam engine won't stop in Suisun City but will pass through sometime between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. en route from Roseville to Oakland. The engine will be on display in Roseville on Saturday (April 18) and in Oakland on Tuesday (April 21) as it follows the Capitol Corridor route.

You can follow the progress of the No. 844 on the Union Pacific's website by GPS or on Twitter.
