UP Big Boy in Vincent

NOTICE: ALL TRAINZ LOVERS READ! All of the pics below are in trainz!
A before the lesson storytime...

Today I looked at my computer, and I saw that a Union Pacific big boy double-header is coming through today! So I went to Vincent to catch it.
By the way, pictures were really easy due to the train moving at a snail's pace.
