Lionel 6-28029 Union Pacific BIG BOY 4-8-8-4 Steam Locomotive & Tender with Command Control The Big Boy was loved by the crews that ran her for her ease of firing and great boiler; she was much easier to fire than the challenger and was often run by inexperienced crews during WW2.

The Big Boys rendered important service in the Second World War, especially since they proved so easy to fire that even a novice could do a fair job. During the war, after German agents filed reports that the Americans had giant steam engines that were moving huge trains full of vital war material over steep mountain grades at high speed, their reports were dismissed as "impossible". Their performance in moving a huge volume of war material throughout WWII was repeatedly cited and the Big Boys are generally acclaimed as having made a huge contribution to the war effort.
