ROCHELLE, Ill. (WIFR) -- One of Union Pacific's original steam engines will soon make a stop in Rochelle as part of a cross-country tour.

"Big Boy No. 4014" will make a stop at the Rochelle Railroad Park from 9:45-10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 30.

The stop comes as Union Pacific celebrates the 150th anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad.
