    I managed to make it to Boone, IA while the 844 was on display there for a day and a half. I know a guy that volunteers for the UP Steam and he showed me some areas of the cars that most people didn't get to see. If the Rear end car was unlocked I would have been able to get into it too. I think the guy that owns or keeps up that car is very protective of it. Anyhow here's a picture of me in front of 844 and more to follow as I really need to work on an outdoor project while its still nice outside.

    UPP? I never noticed that reporting mark before.

    And what do those numbers after "FEF-3" mean?
