Join Goodheart Productions at Steamtown's 1996 Snow Spectacular to watch big steam thunder up the former Lackawanna, Pocono-mountain grade! Experience the dramatic elements of big-time steam railroading - passenger and freight trains storming up mountain grades in sun, heavy falling snow, even fog - in five memorable winter days. To capture the very essence of the experience in an hour-long video is nothing short of . . . spectacular!

* Milwaukee Road 4-8-4 N. 261 pushing a wedge snowplow on the opening-day run
• Passenger trains climbing the one percent grade through fresh fallen snow
• The thrill of a cab ride, with the engineer and fireman describing the operation of 261 during a stirring rugby
• Two days of freight-train railroading, including a classic you-hear-her-before-you-see-her sequence of 261 emerging out of fog
• Action packed pacing shots from a hi-rail truck running ahead of 261 on an adjacent track
• Plus an appearance by Canadian Pacific 4-6-2 No. 2317 including runbys

An oldie but a goodie - with a lot of great action over multiple weekends of trips and various sequences along the route. Predictably, with multiple charters being run, many of the same locations were used for photo runbys, so there are some angles/locations used multiple times. There are some extremely unique shots too, such as a pacing shot from a caboose on a separate train just ahead of the 261 on the next track, and also an in-cab shot of a runby, with the fireman and engineer mic'ed up and explaining the whole runby process as it happens. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this video!

Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: Good.

This now 22 year old video features incredible snow busting action, as not only 261 wore a Lehigh & New England decapod steamboat whistle, but also did an excellent job hauling freight and passenger specials to Tobyhanna. Not only was 261 the main star of the show, you�ll go in the plow, see a wedding in 261�s cab, as well as ice harvesting, plus CP 2317 taking photographers back to Scranton. Only 3 railroad video producers were there for the winter wonderland special such as goodheart productions, revelation video, and mainline motion pictures.

Additional remarks by Steamboy:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Yes.
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Seemed a little high, but not too bad.
Recommend to others? A "Must Have"!
