I'm a brand new member here and for my very first post I thought I'd share some video I shot of the Big Boy #4014 as it roared thru Central Minnesota last month:

Nice job. You really have to keep your wits about you when pacing like that, with the tremendous hordes of onlookers. Good to see these crowds coming out to witness the great machine. Thanks for posting this, DoctorZ.

My wife and I are trained Storm Chasers/Spotters. We used our skills to chase the train. My wife drove while I filmed. We also used the radio on the RR freqs., to monitor the situation. After the first chase on Friday, we had severe weather hit the area as we made our way back home.

We got to chase the train, then "avoid" some really nasty hail and wind on the way back. An exciting day for us!
