American Locomotive Company's Largest Operating Steam Locomotive passed through Sibley Iowa today, Oct 1, 2008

"Challenger" (No.3985) is on a 1,750 mile, 5 state tour that will end back in St. Paul Minnesota, where it began 16 days ago. It was built in 1943, and it was an amazing machine to watch, as you will see in this video. Here is the link for the Specs and history http://www.uprr.com/aboutup/excurs/up...

We felt like we were in the old days of Bonnie and Clyde or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid.
It was exciting and we hope you enjoy this wild ride with us.
One of the neatest websites from Union Pacific is this one on how the "Big boy" steam locomotive engines work with a virtual interactive steam locomotive to watch. Very neat to visit here.

Please subscribe and pass on this video to any train buffs you may know.

Coins have been put on rails for years. IN fact you can go to the train Museum in Sacramento and buy a FLATTENED Penny with a symbol of a train on it. ALSO, NEVER in history has a train ever been de-railed by a coin! Especially a 1.08 Million LB train! IN fact you can get one FLATTENED with a train Symbol on it at the Train Museum in Sacramento, California, it is such a common thing.

Thanks to Ilea "Bonnie" for the great driving, and thanks to you the viewers for watching.
Best regards,
"Bonnie and Clyde"
