To sound more technical, one of the most powerful n heaviest Loco in the world, now poses for the grand-kids n next generation folks.
Facts:- the only series which hauled even the heaviest of freight with help of a single banker in steepest ghats. Max hauled single Big Boy was 135 without the help of a Banker.
Now most of them need almost 3-4 locos to haul more than 80 wagons.

What "Big" Really Means - UP 4014 sits on track panels in the parking lot of the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds in Pomona California as it starts it's journey home to Cheyenne Wyoming to join the UP steam fleet. The gentleman in the orange vest is one of the crew that is facilitating the move from the Rail Giants Museum at the fairgrounds to the Metrolink track approximately a mile away. What is truly striking is how large a 4-8-8-4 really is in terms of length, and how small the man is in comparison to this behemoth.
Loco:- ALCO UP 4014
