I saw that, and I didn't get to reply until now. Nice shot, Spacetrain - welcome to the front page!

Nice. It's a shot that actually shows how big this thing is, unlike all the drone and far away shots that look like they are on a HO scale layout.....

It's a good thing that somebody wrote Big Boy on the front of this loco. How else would we know what it is?
Obviously Steve didn't see the memo of why that was added.

I have to believe that the comment was intended to be tongue-in-cheek.

Just like to point out the fact that he was trespassing to get this, and standing in the shots of everyone who wasn't trespassing at that spot to do so.

Pretty sure that's him in the blue shirt on the left of the group of people by the pole: https://youtu.be/zdVD2M2xxsM?t=85

I hereby nominate all railfans who have never trespassed for sainthood.

On the other hand, no sympathy for those who violate photo lines!

Unfortunately, at this event, it was difficult to get images that didn't include spectators. The looky-loos were pretty much everywhere, unless you hiked out into the boonies. In some locations, there was a modicum of organization, but in other locations it was pure bedlam. That's why we have Photoshop.

Honestly, the clowns who clawed their way up the ballast to within 5 feet of the train didn't bother me as much as the yo-yos who paced the train, either on the interstate or on the secondary roads, and in the process, created major traffic issues. Those folks basically thumbed their noses and obstructed hundreds of other people, be they photographers attempting to get ahead of the train.....or truckers simply trying to get their loads to market. I've never understood pacers and never will. After 10-15 seconds, what's the point?

Thank you all for reminding me why I thoroughly enjoy railfanning on short lines and branches where nobody else goes. I'm definitely not a people person when it comes to my chugga chugga photography.

Ditto. The only way I would have joined the 4014 hoopla would have been sitting about a mile away listening to it with an ice cold gin martini in my hand...
