Default ASTER Big Boy with passenger train

I found a picture of a Big Boy with a passenger train, so I thought I try to re-enact this this afternoon with my ASTER Big Boy and J&M Models Pullman cars:
Regards
Fred

Thanks Fred, the coaches look small when coupled up to a Big Boy both in reality and the model. A good load for a Pacific but it would have hardly troubled that Aster Big Boy.

Looks like an Aster BB, first generation, but who males the coaches?

You're correct Pete, I also have a problem with spelling. :>)

Nice video but shouldn't you have another 96 cars behind it?

I agree that 4 cars is a bit short for a passenger train, but I cannot imagine a Big Boy ever ran with 100 passenger cars. Would 20 passenger cars not be more prototypical?

just kidding

I love watching video of the BB hauling 100 freight cars
I have built some engines that I think could do the same thing but have never had the chance to see

The thing about the BB is it's huge firebox and what seems like an endless supply of steam.
