Both of the UP diesel shots are great.   The 4702 is one of the last new SD70M's before the Tier I radiators were installed on the units.   I think 4710 and up had the new flaired radiator.

That's a nice looking engine Pennsy. I've always admired the styling of UP's later model steam locomotives.

Hi,
 
 Big Boy # 4014 is preserved, as you see her on display, in the Pomona Fairgrounds, the Fairplex, in Pomona, California. According to the Historical Society people that operate the museum, it is the best preserved Big Boy in the world. It has been esthetically restored, and although she will never run again, she is in the best position of all those preserved to be restored to operating condition.

Here's one from the inside...  Along a coal run on an old Rio Grande line a man named P J Read etched a locomotive in sandstone along with his name and the date.  A person could pass this a  few hundred times in a diesel locomotive and not see it because the old steam locomotives were so much lower (it is etched at the height of a steam locomotive's window)
 
Thank you Mr. P J Read.

One benefit of moving to Las Vegas is that Cima Hill is only an hour away. Compared to the railfanning I'm used to, it can only be described as otherworldly. On most mountain grades, trains grind through curves  and are surrounded by trees. Not here. Everything is wide open, and you'd expect high speed running, not trains grinding uphill at 15 mph...and downhill at the same speed, trying to prevent a runaway. Standing at the summit at Cima, trains can be seen 25 miles away, and can take 2 hours before they finally struggle by you. Here are a couple pictures from a quick trip there last evening.
 
Pulling into Cima, this train has to wait for several others to come up the steep western face before tiptoeing down the hill.
 

 
Here is what a 7000' stack train looks like at 4 miles away. You always know what's coming out here! My camera had a hard time deciding what to focus on. It can be forgiven since the subject was so far distant.

This engine, in St. Paul, MN, still has most of it's original Southern Pacific paint job.

Okay fellas;
 
Let's lay the cards on the table, face up. How about the steamer shots How about digging out the photos of 844 and 3985, or whatever you can find
 
And if you are going Diesel, how about the Diesel Big Boy Yup, the DD-40AX. I was once on State St, Pomona, CA. and a freight came through, led by FOUR of the monster engines. What a sight, and NO camera. I drowned my sorrows in a Beer, imported naturally.

This is a closeup while they were turning on the Y at Mojave in 2004.   Does anyone know why they built a wall way between the engine compartments
