Big Concrete Cutter

Wow! Look at the size of that concrete cutter! It is a lot bigger than the ones you can use at home or in the neighborhood. This one is being used to work on a bridge that goes over Lake Washington near Seattle. Parts of the bridge are worn out, and these workers will be replacing things.

Look out for that big cutting blade; it's really dangerous!

Big BNSF Diesel Engine

Check out this big engine. It hauls cars around the yard, and can also haul trains between cities. I love the orange and green paint. This picture was taken in Seattle, in the train yard near the sports stadiums.

RH 200........10 Stop.

Wow! This thing is big and this picture and really cool! Do you see that big scoop? It can dig lots of dirt and rocks out of the ground. The big arm moves up and down, just like your own arm and elbow. And the whole machine turns around on the tracks, so it can drop the dirt and rocks anywhere.

Here at Big Stuff Blog, we usually show you pictures that are in Public Domain or in Creative Commons. This picture is NOT in public domain or creative commons, but the person who took it lets people share it with others on blogs like this one if you tell them who took the photo. I think it's a great picture; isn't it cool?

Big Passenger Train in California

I bet this train was really noisy when the picture was taken! That horn is loud loud loud. This locomotive takes passengers between cities in California for Amtrak. Find out more about Amtrak here:


Blue is my favorite color, and this engine has a lot of blue paint.

Big Road Grader

This big machine evens out the dirt and rock so a road will be smooth. Then they pave it. They sound really cool too! I like the yellow paint job.

Here's a big train locomotive sitting in the rail yard. It uses diesel fuel for power and hauls big trains full of toys, airplanes, cars, garbage, and other stuff.
