Gibson.

Yes, Tom, it was a good day for the 4014 and those who saw her.  The weather was great, but it was a bit too big a crowd for me, could get any clear pics without heads and hands holding smart phones in the way. Oh well...… such is the price of fame!  Deanna enjoyed herself and we later ate a fine Mexican restaurant, then to the Big Blue Whale before heading back to OKC area.

Wanted to post and show pics of all the cars in the consist, along with what was posted Saturday.  This, along with detail shots of the 4014, hope may be of use to some who model cars and want to see details up close.  I have a few of same cars she pulled, 18in, need to see about making the drumhead.  But first things first...    Have many irons in the fire now, really need to complete the 14in naval Railway Gun I am building before end of the year.  Would post videos I took but they are all too long for posting.

I was glad there were so many people as I was able to get ahead of it again thru Claremore. Amazing! My wife took the pictures with her camera and I took the video with my phone. (Excuse the pan up as I was just in aw and looked away from the phone screen)

Andrew,  Glad you were able to get some clear shots of 4014 in motion!  We considered trying to do a chase but had concerns of missing the 30 min stop in Claremore.  Besides, my wife was having to do the driving, and she doesn't like doing the speed limit...…..   Was thinking of going on North to Nowata for the stop there, but just wasn't a likely event to take place.  Hope the fellows in KC got some great pics and videos of her.  Thanks for sharing what you have, sir!!

Very nice pictures, when it was here in El Paso, you couldn't get on the fireman's side of the train.  Unfortunately I wasn't able to get any good pics of that side.  The only way I got to see the left side was to look over a chainlink fence.  Great pictures and videos, thanks for sharing.
