"Union Pacific 4-8-4 No. 833 finally made its trip from (Pioneer Park in) Salt Lake City to ( the Utah State Railroad Museum in) Ogden on Sunday, February 21, 1999, as planned, by truck. Newspaper reports variously put the cost of moving the roughly 450,000-pound locomotive and tender at $100,000 and $120,000, apparently funded by a grant from the Utah Legislature."
