These are awesome, Chris - thanks for helping to preserve the memories and for taking the time to share! Wow - 4-12-2, that's just amazing. We don't see variations like this in the modern world.

A real beast of a machine!

The U.P. sure has a thing for large power! While a Challenger or a Big Boy are impressive locomotives, imagine seeing this six axle, twelve driver machine in motion!

Your collection is astounding! As an Eastern born and raised fan of all things L&N, C&O, N&W, etc... I can honestly say you've made me understand the fascination that folks have with the UP. Thank you for posting these, and really helping make a veritable treasure.

Everything about this shot exudes railroading that I and miss seeing today. The giant beast pulling a long train single handedly, the variety of cars from fallen flags, the fireman and brakeman watching the photographer and no graffiti in sight. Even though this was taken years before I was born, this is what I see in my mind when I think of railroading. Thanks for sharing this fantastic shot with us.
