Here are a few shots of UP's 4-8-4 at a stop-over at Liberty, MO en route to Kansas City's Union Station.
I was just thinking the same, really big loco!! I'd love to see one of these up close.Great shots, Bob. I just showed them to my wife and she couldn't get over the size of the engine . Sometimes we forget just how massive these things are when working with our models.
I am very lucky to have seen and actually touched the Challenger in her engine house 10 years ago. It was the last trip my Dad and I took together and we showed up at a slow time and got a personal tour by the Challenger's Fireman. She is the most awesome piece of machinery I have ever seen. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I want to go back.I was just thinking the same, really big loco!! I'd love to see one of these up close.
