The Big Boys were the stuff of legends, giants of the rails, revered for their immense size, power and reliability. Longer, heavier, more powerful than any other articulated steam locomotive in the western US, they became symbols of an era.
The constant interest in the Big Boys led Pentrex to conduct an exhaustive search for untapped footage. A newly discovered collection of 35mm film, combined with our existing archives, gave us the comprehensive film library we needed in order to assemble and all inclusive record of each of the 25 Big Boy locomotives in action.
Each of the Big Boys, from #4000 to #4024 are shown in numerical order. You'll see them taming the Wasatch Mountains, conquering the grades of Sherman Hill, and in the shops of Cheyenne. With their 4-8-8-4 wheel arrangement, 132 foot long locomotive and tender and their 1.2 million pounds of loaded weight, the Big Boys literally shook the Earth. Enjoy the ultimate Big Boy collection.
