Saving a Big Boy and Other Railroad Stories is an effort to preserve some of the oral history of former Union Pacific Railroad employees who experienced the era of both World War II and steam-powered locomotives. In this sequel to Crossing Sherman Hill and Other Stories, the scope has been expanded to include the accounts of women who were hired to work for the UP at a time when railroading was viewed as a "man's world." Included here are stories of shop employees, track workers, train dispatchers and locomotive engineers. These stories, illustrated with historic photographs, provide an enthralling look at arduous times on the railroad in Wyoming and the Union Pacific employees who were up to the challenge.
