It’s been silent for half a century, pushed aside by more efficient diesels, but now it’s coming back to life. The Union Pacific Railroad is embarking on a yearslong restoration project that will put No. 4014 back to work pulling special excursion trains. “It’s sort of like goin...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-578220782014-04-15T11:16:01.323-06:00" id="#license-2014-04-15T11:16:01.323-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Good thing for the Cougars that role players such as Kim Beeston, Kylie Maeda and Stephanie Rovetti were there to hit the jackpot. Five Cougars scored in double figures for the first time this season and BYU outlasted Pacific 77-64 in a West Coast Conference semifinal game at Orleans Arena.

Seemingly, Monday’s WCC tournament semifinal game against the Tigers (3:30 p.m. MDT, BYUtv) at Orleans Arena shouldn’t be that difficult for BYU (25-5), but coach Jeff Judkins begs to differ. “Pacific is a really scary team,” Judkins said. “They a...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

For starters, Gonzaga and Saint Mary’s won’t meet in the championship game for the first time since 2008 (when Gonzaga lost to San Diego in the finale) because the Zags and Gaels are in the same half of the bracket. And the Zags are not overwhelming favorites this year, despite having won the l...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
