    Wow, I knew that you (Americans) ran bigger locos in the steam age than those found in Europe but the Big Boy is massive! I don't think any European line could have accomodated it ;)

    Well, the biggest and most powerfully was one of the last steam locomotives made. Two different railroads ran them but the most remembered is the C&O Allegany 2-6-6-6. This is not a Rivarossi model but a brass one made by Akane.
