UPP 4014 Big Boy - In order to feed Big Boy's voracious appetite for coal, a large Stoker was used. This was like a cork screw, or auger, that pulled coal from the tender, broke it up, churned it through a large diameter pipe leading from the tender to the FireBox and shot it into the fire. Big Boy ate an average of 122,500lbs of water (12,500 gallons) and 22 tons (44,000lbs) of semi-bituminous coal per hour! Source: Big Boy Information Center
