Taking a Short Break
December 28, 2019
These two men were taking a short break while the Union Pacific “Big Boy” steam engine was being decoupled from the George Bush 4141 engine in Palestine, TX. I found it very interesting how many people were working (and some waiting) to take 4141 off the main track, move it to a side track, then reconnect Big Boy to the rest of the train in preparation for their departure the following morning.
“I like trains. I like their rhythm, and I like the freedom of being suspended between two places, all anxieties of purpose taken care of: for this moment I know where I am going.” ~ Anna Funder
