All aboard the polar express: Steam locomotive takes home passengers stranded by snow-delayed modern trains

Passengers stranded when modern-day trains fell victim to the freezing weather have been rescued by the crew of a steam engine.
About 100 passengers climbed aboard the first mainline steam locomotive to be built in Britain for almost half a century at London Victoria when electric trains were delayed

While reading "Locomotive Valves and Valve Gears" by Yoder and Wharen, Reprinted 1993 by TEE Publinsihing, I came across a photo of a 2-8-8-8-2 (p134) (Articulated Tripple Coumpound) I thought that the "Big Boy" (4-8-8-4) was the largest steam engine ever (maybe the biggest UP engine). Also mentioned on page 167, (Whyte's system) is a 2-8-8-8-8-2. Were any of them ever made? Any photos?

I'll try to attatch a scan image, but this scanner is a challange.
