Re: "Big Boy Locomotive" by M.Ramos
Wow! The 4-8-8-4 Big Boy! I'd be totally crazy to take on that task! Union Pacific has restored Nr. 4014 and I've been seeing videos of it. It's the only one running now. What an historic locomotive!
I was a young teen when the B & O Railroad's 2-8-8-4, Baldwin-built, EM-1 Yellowstones were still running. Giant machines! It gives me goose-bumps to think of them. Every once in awhile, out of nowhere, I smell that oily steam smell that surrounded the old steam engines.
Can't wait to see the finished art!
