Remarks: UP challenger #3985 headed to Sedalia, MO, on October 9th, 2010. The train is shown at two locations. The first scene shows the train blasting up Kirkwood Hill in Oakland, MO. The second scene shows the locomotive departing Pacific after a whistle stop in front of a huge crowd of onlookers.
I have to say at this point that videos of this monster machine have been posted by several fine folks to this site and all, including this first time "rookie", Jake B., have done exemplary jobs. I am in awe of this piece of history each time I see it chugging across my PC screen. I thank each and every one of you for sharing!
