User video: The Big Boy up close and personal

Watch this video from a fellow model railroader
A bit of a departure from my model railroad, but worth the journey to experience the real thing ... and I mean EXPERIENCE! Count the rivets ... smell the tar ... feel the steam ... vibrate with the ground ... as THE BIG BOY rolls by an arms length away. Enjoy this intimate view of THE BIG BOY on tour this past summer ... up close and personal!
