This is the Union Pacific "Big Boy" which operated until 1959 pulling heavy freight over a particularly steep piece of mountain track. It is enormously powerful and rather fast (sustained operational design at 80 mph).
Back in the swing and in at the office. Minor crisis is the name of the day gig and they oblige by returning to their normal operation as well.
I will spend the evening by the fire with a pot of tea (later, eggnog with rum) and pen in hand.
It's good to be in late fall.
Feels right. Feels like it is time to pull the load.
Hope your tracks are clear today. Shove the coal. Make the steam. Time is right for pushing on.
