Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

Watch Milwaukee Road #261 from trackside, helicopters and in the cab as she pulls the world-famous New River Trains from Huntington to Hinton, WV.
You'll see here the 261 attack the curves and grades in this rugged territory in an old-fashioned, smoke-belching, stack-rapping performance. It's all been captured in the typical Goodheart fashion...precise camera work, a rousing cab ride narrated by Engineer Rich Melvin, aerial views and spectacular scenery! The route of this train goes through the New River Gorge, one of the most scenic parts of America, especially in October when the gorge is ablaze with fall colors! There's even more! Vintage scenes of ex-Reading steam locomotive 2101, C&O 614 and NKP 765 plus side-by-side running of the 765 and Pere Marquette 2-8-4 No. 1225 at the 1991 NRHS Convention. PLUS...you'll see scenes of the rebuilding of the 261 following the 56 minute main feature. If you have ridden their annual train excursion, here is a perfect souvenir from the steam days. If you haven't ridden a train here, this will make you want to go.

Running time 56 minutes

The second program I bought from Goodheart, I was trying to find a decent program documenting 261's new river excision. is was either this or 261 featured in a segment from Greg Scholl's program "Great Steam trains volume 3". I decided to settle with this and I have to say I am quite pleased. This is not so much of a 261 program but almost like a documentary. 261 is briefly shown but the highlight is the segments on the history of the New River excursions starting from Reading 2101 to the NRHS convention with 765 and 1225. if your a fan of the 261 or just have memories of the New River trains this is a program that you should give a chance!

Additional remarks by Hawaii_train_Dude:
Narration: A little bit too much.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value: Seemed a little high, but not too bad.
Recommend to others? A "Must Have"!

One of the most common thing about this feature, is that all of these past events minus the CSX F-Units, Were also seen in each and every Greg Scholl Video Ever Made. Oh How these scenes could be familiar from this producer to another. The 2101 segment on this is 100% silent with dubbed sound. the rest have real recordings of the events.

Additional remarks by Steamboy:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Yes.
Image quality: A little rough around the edges.
DVD Value:: Fair.
Recommend to others? Yes.
