Illinois Cowboy and the Union Pacific Big Boy

I just love this photo. It is of Union Pacific's Big Boy and a Fults, Illinois cowboy on horseback pacing the great locomotive carrying the American flag last week.

Today, the Big Boy will head west from Kansas City to Denver where it will spend the weekend. 

Below is a photo I took of the Big Boy passing through Martin City, MO in December, 2019.

The Big Boy is spectacular and well worth seeing. 

P.S. I'm taking the weekend off from the blog after Hurricane Ida, the Tennessee flash flood and the almost around the clock storm coverage during the last month. There will be new content, so please check back.
