Hi. I am definitely peripheral to this forum .:rolleyes:

I am looking for a video of one of the famous Big Boys leaving a station. It was posted by somebody who had a serious YT train channel. Unfortunately I have forgotten what the person's name was, which Big Boy and what station. I am pretty sure it had a diesel assist engine with it. I can still see the other details of the video in detail. It starts down next to the train as it starts, venting massive amounts of steam at the people on the platform. I am pretty sure it then moves the POV to the end of the platform, with more of the steam. In the end the camera is from a bridges over the railway, as the train moves away from the station.

Poor post I know, but any info would be gratefully received. I have searched and searched YT with many search words.
