Union Pacific #4012 at Steamtown

Union Pacific #4012 - Steamtown USA

Though it may appear at first glance that #4012 is steaming though the West, it actually sits rusting away at the side of the parking lot at Steamtown. You have to stand next to this engine to begin to appreciate how large it is!

My obsession with Big Boys continues as I wait for Lionel to deliver Union Pacific #4014 to my S gauge layout this fall. It will be way too big for my roundhouse or even my engine house, so it will sit out in the weather, just as #4012 does at Scranton.

You will find many other photos of the Steamtown National Historic Site on page two of the photo Albums on this site.

    I was always facinated by these huge locomotives. They must have really been something to see roaring by at speed.
