You can tell this is a BIG engine!

To see it in person must be thrilling and amazing!

Are the two yellow railcars for extra fuel, or some other purpose? And then the modern engine, is it helping push, or just for a possible breakdown of the BigBoy?

It will be coming through Oklahoma in Nov. I'm really torn, I'd love to go see it, but it would be about a 300+ mile roundtrip.
