Union Pacific Locomotive 4455

Colorado Railroad Museum - Golden, Colorado 

Union Pacific 0-6-0 locomotive 4455 was built in 1920 by the Lima Locomotive Works. In the 1930s and 40s, it served as a switch engine at Denver Union Terminal. The Laramie Valley Railroad purchased 4455 in 1940 and operated it until 1970. It was donated to the Colorado Railroad Museum in 1972.


  1. I've enjoyed all your images from the Colorado Railroad Museum, but this one is great. Love the black and white tones captured here. I think it would make a great print. Very nice work.

    1. Thanks Ed. There is something about a steam locomotive that lends itself to black and white.
