East meets West by DragonWolfACe East meets West by DragonWolfACe
This is probably my favorite shot out of the night shots Ive done. NKP765 takes a spin on the turntable while SP Daylight watches, waiting.
4449 hasnt made it east of Chicago since it ran the Freedom train in 1976 so I feel lucky to catch her staring at another large steam engine.

Good times.

The 4449 is such a beautiful locomotive. Perhaps the most beautiful of American Steam.

4014: I had to take 3-5 years of restoration. Why'd you think I'd be here early?

A Southern Pacific Daylight meeting a Nickle Plate Berk...yes, never happened until now. It took since 1976 to get the 4449 east of the Mississippi.
