Celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the Transcontinental Railroad’s Completion, Big Boy, one of the largest steam engines ever made is visiting Duluth this weekend. The Big Boy, built for the Union Pacific Railroad is an incredible machine to view.
Here you see it crossing a train trestle over the Nemadji River just outside Superior.

This train went through Hampton, Iowa Tuesday July 16th at 12:45 PM, what a beautiful site, and the sound it made was incredible.ReplyDelete
Love old locomotives. That shot looks like a painting. Well done!ReplyDelete
The 4014 is an engineering marvel. You’ve captured this historic moment beautifully! Thanks, Dennis!ReplyDelete
The age of craftmenship and design thankfully someone else can see the need to restore and preserve the quality of by gone days.ReplyDelete
Sure it's not a painting? Just kidding, what a awesome photo!ReplyDelete
A reminder of my teens! The whistle is fantastic! A step back in time.ReplyDelete
Thanks Dennis for the picture of 4014. I see the press didn't do too much, but saw it in Superior getting water.ReplyDelete
That is an awesome picture! Thank you. When I saw the 4006 years ago in St. Louis I was pretty sure there wouldn't be an example in steam ever. Glad to see the resurgence.ReplyDelete
