Andy's Angles: Big Boy

It's Steamtown's signature piece, and I'm never tired of looking at it.

Today, a photo of Union Pacific 4012, known as "Big Boy."  I took this shot during a Steamtown visit last month.

Built in '41, retired in '62.  It was one of the largest steam locomotives in the world, and I can just imagine what it was like watching this and its brothers traveling across the nation.
