Sheesh, 8 steam engines side-by-side perfectly alligned. Musta been something special going on that day, or a once in a life time catch.

I saw that last photo awhile back. Looks like a busy day on the UP.

More like: all broke or severely delayed. But I'm just guessing...

Or they were trying to all get on the one track!

With the steam engines, either it was very windy (possible if it was Chicago) or they were moving at the same speed.

I suspect the photographer used a slow shutter speed. Note that while the flags seem to be fluttering, the driver spokes can be clearly seen. Looks like they were all blowing their whistles too. Quite a site.

It was probably staged for a promotional photograph, or something of the like.

Definitely a publicity shot-done quite a bit back in the days when men were men, women were women, cars were cars and we still had a country.

That ABPR archive has some good pics-the Usenet group is alt.binaries.pictures.rail . I've gotten quite a collection from there.

(Bud Laws, the gentleman that posted that shot, puts up many photos of steam, including builder's photos.)
