UP "Big Boy" 4014 spent Tuesday pm and overnight 10 blocks from home. Here's a few pics. Lowell.
Your pictures are much better than mine from Albert Lea. Too many people in the way for me.
She's looking real good with some road grime on her too, looks like she's fresh off of Sherman Hill!
Sweet! Got to St.Paul last night and she was sitting cooled down and quietly resting. Was good to see her action shots you took, especially the steam billowing!
I got there just after it arrived Tues. It was kinda rainy and that kept the early crowds down so I got some good pics. Then I made a point of going back Wed am to see it leave. Here's more pics. Lowell.
Yeah, all the action of a steam locomotive from the engineer operating the various linkages and hearing that close up, to the steam, to the running gear operating. It really IS quite a spectacle!
