That's a great ride. Is it annual or several times a year? Looks like it would be a great "leaf trip" in the fall.

We're booked to Montreal and back the last week of October. Hope the leaf's (leaves?) cooperate.

UP's 'Big Boy' is supposed to be rolling out the shop in Cheyenne, WY in a few weeks and will start making 'visits' up and down their lines this fall. Should be stunning.

This will be our 3rd or 4th time. Do hate having to be at 30th St by 5 a.m.
I'll check with the wife on The Horse's Tail. I'm just along for the ride.

Shot with several folks from the Cheyenne area last month at the Nats and they said it won't be pretty, but should be rolling under its own power later this fall.

Dave - thanks for posting. Great to see 4014 running. Wish we were shown more of the 4-8-4 behind it. They are hauling some water/oil in those tenders (to say nothing of the Dash 9 behind them both). Easy to see why they changed over to diesel-electric. Keeping one of those steam powered giants running was quite the feat in water, oil &, especially, maintenance.

Is this the one that was just completely restored after nearly 60 years of being non operational?
