Journey 4 - Introduction to Steam
This Journey takes you back to the 1940's and 50's when steam ruled the railroads! You start out with some introductory sessions to teach you how to handle the complex tasks of keeping your fire hot, water and coal levels maintained and avoiding wheelslip. You then move onto the famous Union Pacific BigBoy. The largest ever "4-8-8-4" steam loco consisted of a four-wheel leading truck for stability entering curves, two sets of eight driving wheels and a four-wheel trailing truck to support the large firebox. We have saved the best Steam locomotive for last. We are very excited to have this ultra high detailed train on mobile. Please welcome "The Blue Comet" in all its glory!
