(UP “Big Boy” # 4008 at Laramie, August, 1957)
The YouNipple promotional film link below catches the bright & cheery, upbeat “can-do,” optimistic “Up Your Hole!” All-American “God Damn YOU, You DIRTY Pinko-Mohammedan SONofabitch!” mood of the Vietnam-Iraq era perfectly!
Plus there is some great “Big Boy” steam locomotive footage, too.
