Rather than a train this is a railway scene, the grain elevator and Meeting Creek station in Central Alberta. The station is now a museum for the Canadian Northern Railway and the elevator is open for public viewing occasionally.

OK so not a railway photo in the traditional sense but I thought some of you railfans might be interested in checking out our May 13, 2019 CWRailman Blog USPS has a Special Stamp For Rail Fans to see the latest offering from the US Postal Office for all us rail fans.

For you railroad buffs. Photos of the "BigBoy #4014" and the "The Living Legend #844" leaving Morgan, Utah heading east to Evanston, WY. They had been to Ogden, UT for the 150th Anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad and laying of the Golden Spike celebration at Promontory Point, UT. There were huge crowds to witness their departure.

Nice capture of a historic event and nice use of the "diesel filter" to get rid of that darn diesel they had stuck behind the steam locomotives and before the passenger cars. I heard that tickets to ride the train were between $2000 and $3000. I just cannot get used to the renumbered 844. I always knew that locomotive as 8444 until the UP decided they wanted to use that number for one of their diesels. I wonder if they will ever run the Challenger with the Big Boy. Talk about assume!!

844 was her number when new. The renumbering to 8444 happened when "844" was assigned to a new GP30. After the GP30 was retired in 1989, the 8444 reverted back to 844.

Kyle 3207 and MNA 2745 headed South out of Clinton, Missouri, Sunday, 5-19-2019, with 6 grain cars from Farmers Elevator, and 4 tankers from Champion Brands. First time I have seen two locomotives at end of track in Clinton. Probably going to pick up more cars as they head to Nevada, Missouri, and further on.

Has anyone out west gotten any shots of the "big boy" now that it's been restored?
There are hours of utube of it double heading with 844 all over the west. But individual photographs I have not seen. I sure would love to see it in person then you would have tons of pictures.

My wife and I are considering taking our son on one of the excursion once they put it into service!

I am not a big diesel fan but I like the perspective of this shot. It really enhances the frontal view of the lead diesel. Nice capture.
