I did not get the photos I wanted of the Union Pacific Big Boy, but this one tells “if the engineer has to use a bullhorn to tell people to get off the tracks, maybe it’s time to thin the herd.” Literally, he was sounding the whistle and yelling on the bullhorn, and people standing on the tracks.

Second picture is crossing the iron bridge at Ft Gibson, OK.

Couple of more. Probably not worth sharing, but they mean a lot to me. I also took my old AE-1 with Ilford B&W, waiting impatiently to have those developed.

Ignore the crappy video, just crank up your volume and listen to the whistle blow! Video is crappy because I put my phone on video and stuffed it back in my pocket. All I wanted was to record the whistle.

Still fairly happy with these.

Thank you. Some luck involved for sure given how close I was (25 ft) and his speed (40 mph ??).

Great photos! First one really shows the how massive Big Boy really is, and I love the B&W. You can almost feel the ground shake while looking at the photo.

Looking back through mine, this is probably the best one I got, and I had to crop the hell out of it to get all the people out.
