For those who are not rail fans, y'all probably weren't aware that Union Pacific rebuilt the biggest of steam locomotives of all time and took it on tour.
As a fan of, well, anything that is propelled in some way or another (and many things that aren't) I wanted to share the story and a video of this beast and see what other people think.
What do you suppose the cultural significance of bringing this piece of history back to life? Like the electric Porsche 912 conversion in another thread, is converting a coal fired locomotive to fuel oil taboo? Is this just a silly hobby or serious business?
The whistle makes me smile every time I hear it.
