Imagine Big Boy 4014 At 75 MPH !
Time lapse photography shows us the way!
While pacing Big Boy 4014 at 25 mph on her move back to Cheyenne, Wyoming, for renovation, the time lapse photography sped up 3X’s shows us what Big Boy 4014 would look and sound like at 75 MPH!
It makes for an amazing sight for sure!
Rescued from her display in Pomona, California, she was moved to the Union Pacific Steam Shop in Cheyenne back in May of 2014
Hopefully we will see her back on the rails again soon unassisted pulling a revenue freight.
