I believe it was in Los Angeles in 2019 on its first trip.

The first trip did a West Coast Loop and the second trip went to the Upper Midwest - Omaha, Des Moines, Minneapolis, Duluth, Chicago and St Louis back to Denver and Cheyenne if I remember correctly.

Actually, I am correcting myself! After their first trip to the 150th Anniversary of The Golden Spike Ceremony, which was the Great Race to Ogden, the next trip trip was The Great Race Across The Midwest, which was routed straight back to Cheyenne from Chicago.

The last trip was The Great Race Across The Southwest.

With the new trip, Big Boy 4014 will visit Dallas/Fort Worth, New Orleans, and St. Louis for the first time.
