    Hell, the engineer probably doesn't even see the camera jockey. It's the photographer who should be worried.
    Nice picture, Les. I like the look of the sunlight and that good lookin' locomotive doesn't hurt either.

    It is the beast of the east. The most powerfull steam locomotive ever built. All 7000 plus horsepower at over 1 million pounds (1,197,400). The mighty Alleghenie with an e. H8 2-6-6-6 coal haulin C&O powerhouse.
