Doing the locomotion

Tristan and No. 844
  • Tristan and No. 844

For you train buffs out there, Brian Chilson offers this picture of Union Pacific's Steam Engine 844 pulling into Little Rock on its way to North Little Rock, where it will be on display at 1000 E. 1000 W. 4th St. today and tomorrow. The train's journey across country is in celebration of UP's 150th anniversary.

Watching the 844, the last steam engine built for UP and delivered in 1944, is Triston Wyatt, age 6, of Little Rock.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
