When Milwaukee Road 261 visited Steamtown National Historic Site in 1995-96, she often passed by Big Boy 4012, like in this 1995 shot from railfan Ted Krug:

If 4014 passes the 261 shop, and if, somehow, Steve and Company have 261 out to greet her, 4014 will be the second Big Boy 261 has encountered.

Cool! That scene is long before I happened upon the 4-8-4 engine in the photo. Back in the day when most of the railroads would allow that thing to use their ROW to get where they needed to go.
Way different these days!
