Locomotive Infographic

January 2014 | Part of my internship at Union Pacific involved creating infographics to share with the public, both on Union Pacific’s website and through social media channels. This project was to illustrate the huge scale of the “Big Boy” No. 4014 steam engine for those who haven’t been lucky enough to see one in person.

Given the widespread enthusiasm for the Big Boy, attention to detail in this illustration was crucial. Before the infographic could be released, I worked with experts to ensure everything was accurate and to scale. To my surprise (and mild amusement), this infographic was picked up by other sites and news stations when talking about the Big Boy’s restoration project.
