    I remember seeing a Big Boy at Steamtown about 20 years ago, standing right next to it I couldn't believe how big it was. Me and my brother-in-law had a ball that day but not as much fun for the wives, but they were good sports and we did take them to the Steamtown Mall afterwards so they could have some fun that day too.

    Very cool! I watched it several times before I completely understood how it all works.

    Was there a hose running from the tender to keep the boiler full of water at all times?

    I believe so, but not 100 percent certain.

    The narrative said the water in the boiler was from the tender and kept full at all times.

    Yeah, given the burnoff rate, I imagine that connection needs to be continuous.

    That was pretty cool. I believe before they had a tender, they had water tanks that collected rain water along side the tracks every so many miles, where they could stop and fill the boiler with water.

    A Reading company photo featuring its only notable streamliner, the "Crusader" (New York/Jersey City - Philadelphia) circa 1937. The train is powered by streamlined 4-6-2 (G1-sa) #118.

    Lefty - man, that one looks like it was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

    Reminds me a little of the old Art Deco look of certain buildings in that era.
