Big Boy live steam scale model:


For sixty years, if you wanted to see a Big boy steaming, you had to find a scale model.

This one is a 1:6 scale model which took 11,000 hours to build. It was offered for sale for $245,000. Those freight cars were also offered for sale for over $3,000 a pop. Shipping all of that from the US to NZ could not have been cheap.
