scott and I decided to see one of the biggest steam engines in the United States. This is the Big Boy that just blew us away. It is the 150 year celebration of the Union Pacific so they decided to go across the county with this Big Boy! There only four of these around and this one was fixed up and restored.

That bad boy is so huge! That's just awesome! Steam engines are just so much fun.

We were going to stop in Nowata, but it was so crowded. There were fewer people in Coffeyville so we got up close!

Ooo very nice!! I haven't gotten see that one yet. I did ride on a coal train though Cumbres & Toltec. Which goes between Chama, Nm and Antonito, CO. It was an amazing trip.

Oh that is awesome! One of these days we are hoping to go to Canada and take a train from one coast to the other. I am sure it won't be as amazing as riding the Big Boy.

That would be amazing. :)

I upvoted this just for the looks on your faces. Happy train times.
