Union Pacifric has announced that because of the flooding threat in Central Nebraska, Big Boy No. 4014 will stay in North Platte until further notice.

The vintage locomotive, in the middle of its “Great Race Across the Midwest,” was scheduled to continue on from North Platte Thursday, with stops in Gibbon and Grand Island, followed by a stop in Central City on Friday.

Now the schedule is likely to be delayed for a few days.
