Hi Kelly
That line of new engines is crazy, an awesome shot, impossible to pass up.
One of the 1st things I thought of was, man thats a lot of money! The Big Guys really think in Big terms
The other thing was, thats a lot of snow up there in the mountains, especially the tops
I always love your Wasatch Mountain background shots
thanks______Joe

Thank you Joe!

This was the second time I've seen this in the past few months and really wonder what UP is doing. I wonder if these locomotives are awaiting service, need updating for emissions or are being sold. Possibly they are on their way to be moth-balled in that Arizona dessert. I believe rail shipping is down recently.
It was an interesting sight, for sure.

Saturday saw four charter trains running along the North Wales Coast line. My wife needed the car for her Spanish class so I took the bus to Conwy, luckily I had plenty of time since it failed during the journey and we all had to alight and squeeze onto the next one.

First we see 60183 "Tornado" which has left the Conwy tubular bridge, designed by Robert Stephenson and opened in 1849 and passes the castle built for King Edward 1 between 1277 and 1307. This charter ran from Leicester to the end of the line at Holyhead. All the original class A1 locomotives were scrapped, this one is a new build, completed in 2008 from the original drawings.


I walked to Llandudno Junction station for the other three. The second tour, from Norwich to Holyhead, was top and tailed by class 68 diesels.


Next was a tour from Dorridge to Llandudno for the annual transport extravaganza. with 7029 "Clun Castle" in charge.


A class 47 diesel in its original two tone green colour scheme was on the rear to assist with shunting.


The last charter of the quartet was top and tailed by class 47 diesels, 47854 glides into platform 3 at Llandudno Junction, 512 of this design were built between 1962 and 1968.

Big Boy's Big Day!

First run under steam in 60 years, from Cheyenne Wyoming to Ogden Utah. It was a cloudy and rainy day, but that didn't stop Big Boy and Engine 844, as well as thousands of fans.

Thanks, Alan!
Indeed, but you know how it is with railway photography — there’s a lot of luck involved, and you have to take the cards you are dealt. On the other and, there were hundreds of photographers there and only one showed in this photo.
And it had been pouring rain, which stopped before Big Boy arrived.
Regards,
Kelly

^^ Impressive Kelly!

Pity about the car on the road behind, but I think it's "cloneable"
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here
