My post from last month that did mention the ‘Big Boy’ run across the Midwest.



Just some of the ‘Big Boy’ videos now on YouTube. Search on ‘big boy 4014’.


Well I am sure that some of you by now have sussed out that I am a HUGE train buff. I make no secret of it.

One of my favorite U.S. locomotives is, of course, the ‘Big Boy‘. I used to have two of them in N-scale but my son, then young, destroyed one of them. But, I still have the other.

Watching these videos of the restored U.P. ‘Big Boy 4014’ is quite a treat. I wanted to make sure that you knew they were there on YouTube.
