Fred share even more rail roading references with us. This time its a great close up of the cab of a Big Boy locomotive. He also shares a brief history of this steam giant.

Scott, thanks for posting this.

Everyone, let us pretend that I did not tell Scott the builder was Lima. Well I hate to burst my own bubble but the " Big Boys" were not built by LIMA but were all built by ALCO!

Now Scott has enough photos to super detail the inside of his BigBoy.
