Had a fun time Rail-chasing today! Chased the world’s largest operating steam locomotive into Ellsworth & Wilson today.

This is part of a month-long tour through Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, and Wyoming. Big Boy No. 4014 rode the rails for 20 years from 1941 to 1961, logging more than one million miles. Twenty-five Big Boy locomotives were built exclusively for Union Pacific, yet only eight still exist, and No. 4014 is the world’s only operating Big Boy.
