Union Pacific steam locomotive 8444 is seen in yard with other UP diesel locomotives spotted nearby at Denver, Colorado, Summer 1980. The steam locomotive is being serviced while the tender is being refueled to prepare for the next day's railfan excursion. This modern 4-8-4 Northern oil burning class FEF3 steam locomotive is a good example of a Superpower locomotive. The diesel electric locomotive leading the group is an EMD SD40-2 # 3649. I am standing almost under a vehicle bridge that passes over the Union Pacific Railroad Yard. In the background atop of a building is a water tank with a big sign for Meadow Gold Milk - Butter.
