The Big Show by markkarvon
The Big Show
Big Boy was designed to meet the specification of a locomotive that could pull 3600 tons over the Wasatch Range unassisted. The locomotive name came about when an unknown ALCO employee chalked the name “Big Boy” on the smokebox of the first locomotive in the series. Known as the 4000 class by those who operated them, the Big Boys performed spectacularly at the job for which they were designed. A marvel of mechanical design, Big Boys could run up to 80 MPH. When they were retired, 8 out of the original 25 Big Boys were preserved. Union Pacific Railroad is restoring Big Boy #4014 to operating condition.

Pocahontas Heavy Hauler by markkarvon
Pocahontas Heavy Hauler

Built in 1942, Norfolk & Western’s Class Y6 locomotives were considered some of the best steam locomotives ever produced. Designed to haul heavy trains of coal from Appalachian coal fields, these articulated locomotives rank amongst the most powerful ever built. Able to the exert 166,000 lbs of starting tractive effort, two or three of these locomotives were often used to haul 175 car trains over the Appalachian Mountains. Norfolk & Western was rightly proud of their home-built machines and used them long after most railroads had converted to diesel. The subject of this print, #2156, was finally retired in 1959. She escaped the scrappers torch and is preserved at the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis, MO. Here she is shown at the head of a coal drag on the railroad's Pocahontas Division.

Want to know what these locomotives were like in action? Check this out: www.youtube.com/watch?v=zV8rA3…  Normally the fireman would not let the locomotive put out so much smoke. Knowing they are being filmed, I think they are putting on a good show.
