I recently posted several photos that I’d taken this past Thursday and Friday of the Union Pacific’s “Big Boy” steam locomotive, a 4-8-8-4 behemoth that has been touring Louisiana for the past several days. I mentioned in Sunday’s post that a few of us would be heading down to Donaldsonville, Louisiana to hopefully see and photograph the locomotive and train another time or two.
The crowds were quite heavy, and traffic was, as expected, slowed to a crawl for miles! But we did manage to capture a few views from several places. Below are some highlights of the “chase”.
