It can be fun to travel by train. It is longer that a plane but it is better that a car. Letting someone else do the driving.
The Union Pacific Railroad introduced the Big Boys locomotives in 1936 on its main line across the state of Wyoming.
The Big Boys locomotives have the 4-8-8-4 wheel arrangement. This was the state of the art train that combined two sets of eight driving wheels with both a four-wheel leading truck for stability. This enabled the Bib Boy trains when it would hit a curve, the four-wheel trailing truck that would support the big boy trains large firebox. I have always been big fan of trains. Tons of trains in Calera.
