BigBoy 4012

Presently, BigBoy #4012 resides at the SteamTown National Historical Site in Scranton PA. Non-working, #4012 makes up a very nice static display adjacent to the parking lot at the museum. It is worth the trip out to SteamTown (I make 2 annual pilgrimages a year, a 4 hour drive!) if only to see the immense size of the engine. Aside from #4012, SteamTown offers it's visitors a beautifully refurbished RoundHouse and Backshop complex, a 2 hour train ride and the chance to see a steam loco moving around the engine facilities (they always having something moving around, weather permitting).
