Eric the Viking BS: Resurrection of a Big Boy 4-8-8-4 locomotive (56* d) RE: BS: Resurrection of a Big Boy 4-8-8-4 locomotive 17 Apr 14


I read about this recently. The article was either in Steam Railway or The Railway magazine which incidentally this month has a superb article about Cab forward facing USA locomotives. The biggest locomotive on Display in the UK is the South African Garratt built by the North British works in Glasgow. It is at Riverside,Glasgow. I would love to see and hear a Big Boy running. But for sheer spectacular I think some of those Shay locomotives are hard to beat. Richard, Mallard will never run at full speed again but it's sister Bittern is running at 90+MPH on the ECML.
