Wow! More than a mile of piping in the boiler and the engine weighed 1.25 million pounds....

I had a link to a really good good one about the Union Pacific shop in Cheyenne, Wyoming but I can't seem to find that one.
However the link below is also a good old one of a steam locomotive shop.

I toured http://www.nationalrrmuseum.org/ this summer where they have a Big Boy on display. They played the video that was linked by the OP there, also several others. It's quite a site to behold even if not exactly a steam fan. My wife and son seemed to enjoy themselves just as much as I did.
