This locomotive was recently refurbished & looks like a new one. These were the largest American locomotives - Union Pacific was the only road to use them. There is also a nice park to visit.

Stopped off in trolley tour. Have never seen anything that size before. Difficult due to its size to get a good picture.

Choo, choo! All aboard! This engine is big enough to fit everyone. Best part is that viewing it is free.

It was covered with scaffolding while undergoing restoration. One couldn't see much. It is huge and has historic significance but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it unless I was a huge Sheldon type train fan.

This was not that easy to find with my GPS. It was a short drive out of the way but we had folks in the vehicle that wanted to see it. Drove by, Saw it, didn't get out of the car.
