Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Union Pacific runs summer excursion trains in Wyoming, Utah, and Idaho with this big Challenger class engine. Boilder pressure: 280 PSI (1,930.5kpa)--scary!

Not too fast, though, as it was mostly used for freight.

Seconded, tough again I shall issue a hint that his photo would better fit another Monday Train Blogging planned for a few weeks from now :-)

(I already had half-written versions of about ten weeks' worth when I posted the first instalment three weeks ago.)

Maybe you could post a schedule? We could look for pictures in advance...

Your wish is my command - but I won't give away too much, only titles :-)

Next week: Heavy Haul
2 weeks from now: Forgotten Colorado
3 weeks: The Hardest Job [among railroad jobs]
4 weeks: Highest Speed
5 weeks: Trainwreck

Some for later: Bigger Than Big Boy (I meant this one for your CHallenger photo above), Failed Designs, Crazed Designs, Railway Cathedrals [stations].

The sequence might change - and I may insert some more on people.
