OK, its not a full size Big Boy, this one weighs 5,000 lbs and was manufactured by Mammoth Locomotive Works of Palisade CO.

Frisco residents Phil and Geda Condit donated a mini custom-made steam locomotive to the Museum of the American Railroad, which recently put it on display.
A fundraising campaign will kick off soon to build mini tracks and buy three to six mini passenger cars. The plan is to run the locomotive in a loop around the nonprofit museum's rail yard to showcase its collection of full-size locomotives and passenger cars.

Think of the 16-foot-long, 5,000-pound locomotive as the baby brother to the museum's prized Union Pacific Big Boy No. 4018. That behemoth steam engine is 133 feet long and weighs 600 tons 1.2 million pounds.
