The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

Union Pacific 4006

On display at the St. Louis, MO Museum of transportation. After seeing all the little lightweight lightrail, I HAD to post this. What REALLY should be on rails. Not that lightweight, mambo-pamby stuff.

It's a 4-8-8-4 so 16 driving wheels and 8 carrying wheels. Eight of these Big Boys, built 1941 - 4, are preserved but none in working order.
