Cancelled Movies. Wiki

In the 1990s, a group of filmmakers were planning to make a movie based on the Union Pacific Big Boy. 4018 was chosen to be restored for the film.


It was going to be a plot similar to the movie Old 587: The Great Train Robbery.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. It is unknown why it was cancelled. Probably because the locomotive the railroad people were planning to restore was deemed too expensive and impossible to restore due to missing parts.


  • The film was cancelled.


  • This project predates the restoration of 4014 in the 2010s.
