It's a strange sight to see this huge locomotive sitting in the middle of a city park, next to tennis courts and playground. Something from the past -- an interesting thing to see in this railroad town.

Yes, the engine is there, but windows were broken out, the engine number is painted over on one side of the cab and the paint job is poor. A much better example of a Big Boy is the one in Omaha Nebraska in I-80.

A historic steam engine - one of the largest ever made. If you love steam, stop and take a gander. Great picture opportunity.

A massive steam engine that is well maintained. The unfortunate thing is that it is look, no touch. This is set in a popular city park. Makes you wonder how they got it there.

Great, free attraction in the middle of the park. Largest steam locomotive in the world...it's a must see.
Highly recommend it, then in the same park is a great lake to walk around, horseshoe pits, basketball courts, and lunch tables.
