This image depicts locomotives sitting idle at B Railroad. During the Great Railroad Strike of 1877, the railroad industry came to a screeching halt because not only were the majority of railroad workers on strike, but most railroads in this area at the time attained some sort of extensive damage (whether it be destroyed railcars or uprooted railroad track). In the end, millions of dollars worth of damage was attained by the railroad industry of the east.
#4014 Cab - Big Boy was the name of Union Pacific Railroad's 4000-class 4-8-8-4 articulated steam locomotives, built between 1941 and 1944 by American Locomotive Company (Alco). The class were the only locomotives to have the 4-8-8-4 wheel arrangement, with two sets of eight driving wheels, a four-wheel leading truck for stability entering curves and a four-wheel trailing truck to support the large firebox.
