Two different shots of the 4012 taken at Steamtown, Scranton, PA in December, 2012.

There are only a few of these massive engines still with us, and this one rests at Scranton, PA. I recall that the others are all Out West.

    Some Friends saw this locomotive on their Vacation and brought me some photos with his wife standing next to the wheels. I will try to find them and post so everyone can see the enormity of this Locomotive. I Love these Photos that You posted !!

    Yes, musikchoo, we will all await your pictures with people in them to give an idea of the size of the wheels. I'm not sure, but I think that they are 70 inches in diameter!

    Thank you for kind and thoughtful comment, and for your love of these pictures!!!!

    Yes, Bellin68...I love trains, old and new, too! That Steamtown is quite a place as they have shops for maintaining and restoring steam engines there, of which the public can view. It is a great place for rail fans to visit.

    And as an added bonus, active rail lines (Canadian Pacific & Norfolk Southern run through the park. And within walking distance is The Lackawanna Scranton Station, which has been converted into a fine hotel, which retains the basic design of this gem of a train station. <aybe I can get some pictures of that building at some future point.

    Thanks for your interest and for your love of these items!!!!
