Steam Giants on the Colorado Plateau DVD
During the one time #3751 was in Williams, Arizona, the Grand Canyon Railway had 2 of its own steam engines all fired up and ready to join in the spectacle. This included former CB&Q #4960 in what has now become (sadly) an extremely rare public appearance.
Discover how this 1927 steam locomotive was restored to function perfectly on a modern railroad system.
A highlight of Steam Giants sees 3751 & 4960 double-heading a vintage passenger train to the rim of the Grand Canyon
Included in the production are scenic, trackside runbys along The Grand Canyon Line... a branch line built over 100 years ago by the Santa Fe Railway.

BONUS FEATURE: RAILROAD STORIES
Throughout both of these films, we are blessed with occasional insights about steam railroading from Phil and George. These fellas both worked for the Santa Fe Railroad during the last days of steam. So, they really know what they're talking about from a true historical perspective. They even ran 3751 back in the days of the Santa Fe.
Phil and George go way back. And when old railroad buddies get together, is there any shortage of rollicking tales?
We were lucky enough to let the cameras roll when these two started reminiscing. We put together some of their recollections in a bonus section on the STEAM GIANTS DVD called Railroad Stories. I can't watch it without laughing out loud...and I've seen it countless times. It's funny, fascinating...and touching. Don't miss it.
All this makes for great viewing. There's history and action aplenty to satisfy the young and old.
But, wait....there's more?
ADDITIONAL BONUS SCENES:
#18 at the wye
Engine #18 was also apart of this major steam event in Arizona. Since that time she has moved on and is no longer seen at the Grand Canyon Railway. (Don't worry. She is now a part of another historic railroad operation in Colorado.)
