A couple of Union Pacific SD70M's have avoided the deadlines and work a southbound local on the Ogden Subdivision.
After starting life as a Rio Grande GP35 3032. D&RGW 3032 was able to avoid the scrapers torch and now 55 year after it's build date. Is still earning it's keep on the Utah Railway as a GP38-3 Uta... (more)
I had to stop and get this one on my commute home. A GE Tier 4 UP 2712 leads two other GE's elephant style. UP 2712, 5391, 6380 are three different variant, of GE models over recent years.
My last shot of the day. The Big Boy has made it's last scheduled stop at Delta. Now for the remaining 75 mile run to Milford. Looks like another engineer is getting some throttle time.
PPVMF2 04 was following the Big Boy until the 4014 stopped to check something out. At that point the PPVMF2 04 was given't the run around because the crew was short on time. The UP 6840 suddenly b... (more)
The crowds of local people, are a buzz as UP 4014 makes it appearance in the small Utah community of Santaquin Utah. The crowd was full of young and old, male and female. This was my first shot of... (more)
By routeing the Big Boy on the lesser used Sharp Subdivision. I have very few pictures on this line, and was able to photograph many new locations. UP 4014 rolls through the little town of Mona.
4014 crosses the Servier River with the cement plant in the back ground. A nice photo location no mater the train. A dream come true with the big boy going over this line.

UP 5159 got to be the warm up train for the Big Boy Friday morning. He was heavy on the horn and for good reason. I would hate to be the crew on one of these trains. They are rolling through the f... (more)
The man and his beast. Ed Dicksen is at the helm of the Big Boy, and seems to be enjoying every moment of it.
It's a race to Provo. UP 4014 has a Front Runner commuter train on it's heals, as it rumbles through the Jordan Narrows. A historic day as the Big Boy is running on the ex D&RGW main line. I can't... (more)
The first picture of the day where the smoke has turned from white to black. It's starting to warm up as 4014 has just departed Ogden, Utah.
It was a beautiful sight as UP 4014 rounded the corner at Castle Rock, Utah, on a chilly morning of October 1st.
The Big Boy and all her majesty. It was a cool morning so we got treated to a plume of white smoke/steam this morning. I liked this shot, because it really show off her massive size.
