In the steam to Squamish portion of this combo, 2 engines that were originally built for Canadian pacific are shown here: consolidation 3716 which is still operating at the kettle valley scenic railroad, & royal Hudson 2860 which includes a neat cab ride. Keep in mind that this portion of the combo was made during production of another pentrex title: BC rail cab ride-From Sea to Sky.
In the chessie safety express portion of the combo which was one of the very first programs to be made by main line motion pictures, C&O 614 operates on multiple trips for the Chessie system in 1980 & 1981 only. Which includes some preparations at the workshops. Besides MLMP, other producers like Sunday River, Hopewell, & even Greg Scholl were also there for these trips that will never be repeated again. After the proposed American coal enterprises throughout January 1985, 614 was last operated from 1996-1998 on the New Jersey transit. Like the royal Hudson in Canada, 614 is still standing silent.
The steam to Squamish portion of the combo is narrated by Dave Drui, while the chessie safety express is un-narrated.
