Thank you Pieter and Harald!

Actually I was lucky to only have one car in the photo. There was a string of cars chasing the train up the canyon as well as a drone. I suppose it would be good practice to try to clone the car out though it does add some senescence of scale. I was also lucky to have only one photographer in the shot. He was up on "Tumble Down Rock". Crazy guy! Hope he got down OK. That thing is huge!

The Big Boys could reach speeds up to 70 miles per hour, though it this case he wasn't running fast. Engine 844 right behind 4014 was a passenger locomotive and could reach speeds up to 120 miles per hour. 844 was the last steam engine built for the Union Pacific Railroad and has never been retired from service. I believe it is the only steam engine for a main line railroad in the US that has seen continuous service, though it only runs special charters for the UP for Public Relations. UP now has three operating steam engine including Challenger 3985 which is in the UP steam shops for service.

Kind regards,

Kelly

Wow! 4-8-8-4 articulated drive... the largest steam locomotive ever made... and still running! Was this the 03May19 run?

Hi Brian,

This was Sunday, May 12, 2019. The train was heading eastbound, on its way back to Cheyenne. I also photographed it heading West bound, Wednesday, May 8, 2019 on its way to Ogden for the Heritage Festival. Also photographed it there.

just noticed the date in your original post... What a thrill. Some day, I hope to get the Athern N-Scale version.

Nice 4014 shot, Kelly. I considered traveling to Wyoming and Utah to see it, but I'm allergic to huge quantities of foamers.

Here's one from last week:
