The locomotive will arrive at the Duluth depot on July 19 at 5:00 PM as part of its tour in celebration of the Union Pacific railroad system's 150th anniversary. The Lake Superior Railroad Museum will be holding a Festival of Steam from July 19 to 21 alongside its arrival. There will be many activities at the depot on Friday evening, but access to the Big Boy or the festival site will not be available on Friday. The Big Boy will remain at the depot until Sunday morning.
The Big Boy will be on display only, but visitors can ride in the North Shore Scenic Railroad's historic DM&IR 2-8-0 steam engine No. 332 for a 75-minute trip with the purchase of a ticket.
