    UP BigBoy 4014 Midwest Tour

    I put together this 8min YouTube video with all my Union Pacific Big Boy 4014 clips from the past month. Turned out decent considering I shot it all with my iPhone7. There are some places where the camera shakes due to a makeshift tripod. Enjoy [youtube]

    IAIS 6988 Menlo, IA 6-29-2019

    The other one IAIS 7081 still looks like it did when it came to the US. The 6988 was modified to look more American. I have seen the 7081 a couple times, but this is the first time I have seen the 6988. They did a good job with the makeover on the 6988. There is also another Chinese QJ in...
