Love to see it in person!

4014 came thru town last month. Took the wife and kids to go is chug thru town.  it only had about 10 cars in tow and it was not hammering the ground like I had thought it would. In fact is sounded more like a air pump as it went past as it was not under heavy throttle with such a short train. Im sure when they put some weight behind it she will come to life and put on a good show.   The the next day a friend and I went to where they parked it for the weekend.  its most impressive when you can view it without people standing in the way.  you can see the craftsmanship that was put into getting her rebuilt.   amazing to think I was able to see "the worlds largest" steam locomotive in operation.
