The Famous 844
Sandi Whitteker

The Famous 844

Carson City, NV!!

I've moved from San Diego to Carson City, and finding some new adventures, like train
chasing the 844. Steam Locomotive No. 844 is the last steam locomotive built for Union Pacific
Railroad and that has never been retired. She's a high-speed passenger engine, and she can
really move out. A thrilling moment as she flew by me and about blew me over... I was close
enough (a little too close!) to get sprayed with water from her steam.

other sizes: small medium original

It looks more like it may be chasing you. That aside, it is a remarkable capture - perfectly situated within its frame. ~BV~
