Took this pic yesterday in Haskell, Ark between Malvern and Little Rock. This is the largest steam locomotive class ever built in the world. I won't bore you with facts, do some research and if you get the chance to see this thing, do so. There are also numerous videos on YouTube.

It will be on display all day today in N Little Rock and leaves tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. heading towards Van Buren where it will be on display until Saturday morning. The schedule is at https://www.up.com/heritage/steam/schedule/index.htm

I worked for UP and did some research on Google Earth and found numerous small towns along the railroad to go see this thing running instead of on display but be advised these excursions usually run a little behind schedule.

I saw it in North Little Rock. Interestingly enough, just below this thread, where they always have the similar threads, the top one is about cars colliding while staring at it !!! (this Fall).

I saw Big Boy several years ago in Cheyenne. Really impressive; I can't imagine how great it would be to see it under steam. Unfortunately, it's too far away to go see.


All I could think of was how much my grandfather would have loved to have seen Big Boy. He worked for Norfolk & Western, building locomotives.
