The fact that this is a United States designed-locomotive has resulted in a new collection as it doesn't really fit into any of the other steam locomotive categories on this site. This collection should have originated last year as sister locomotive 6046 was scheduled at last year's GWSR gala, but was unable to attend.
It probably says something about my efforts over the weekend in that this is probably the best photograph I took over the two days I actually managed to attend the "Give My Regards to Broadway" event (unfortunately, circumstances meant that I wasn't able to attend on the last day). After an overcast morning, the sun put in an appearance during the afternoon.
