That's really big! Love the one with the mountains in the background - so you see what all this power is for!

TFS, Kelly!

Thanks, Harald!

I sure do wish that the Big Boy had been in the same position as 844 because of the background, but also because of the potion of the sun. Big Boy was back-lit.
But 844 is also a beautiful locomotive. You may notice that she has the so-called "Elephant Ears" which were not common on American steam engines, as they were in Germany and other European countries. She is also the only mainline steam engine in the USA that was never retired from service and was the last steam engine delivered to the Union Pacific RR.

The Big Boy was one of the largest and most powerful steam engines ever built. She was designed specifically for the steep mountain grades between Ogden Utah and Cheyenne Wyoming and only operated on that route. So yes, having Mount Ben Lomond as a backdrop is very appropriate.

Kind regards,

Kelly

Wonderful pictures of the 4014 and 844 in the original environment, must be impressive to see these drive at good speed!


Let's do a little size contrast

MBS #6 "Magda" taking water in Haaksbergen. It's a small 22 ton 040 built by La Meuse in Belgium and painted in original NCS livery.

In the background you can see # 7853 "Navizence", which didn't do service that day but was just towed out for display.

And even smaller, this "baby boy" is less than 1/60th of "big boy", a small O&K narrow gauge engine in Leiden (Netherlands)

Thank you, Pieter! Those are cute little tank engines! Indeed, tiny in comparison to the Big Boy and 844! But beautiful little locomotives, nevertheless. Its great to see them preserved and well cared for!

We have two steam engines locally (the Heber Valley RR) but both have been out of service for at least 9 years now. Its such a shame. I believe it is just poor management.

Kind regards,
