5002 – Rolling Pride

This is the second train I found sitting all alone, right behind engine 9662. I’ve always felt a twinge of pride when I view one of these engines with the American flag painted on the side rolling down the tracks.  You don’t realize how huge these things are until you get right up next to them.  A bit dusty and worn, but big and strong; kind of like America.
