Remarks & Notes 
Babying the beast. As his chartered photo freight sits in the hole at Groff's Picnic Grove, awaiting the passage of the hourly passenger train, a Strasburg Rail Road Engineer takes advantage of the down time to top off the oil cups on the running gear of the former Norfolk & Western M-Class 12-Wheeler #475. Weighing in at over 200,000 lbs, and generating more than 40,000 lbs of tractive effort, this beast sits on 56" drivers and is one of the taller steam locomotives you'll find in tourist service in the US, along with her stablemate, the former Great Western Decapod #90.
