Photographers Specials on the Heber Valley, Western Maryland Scenic, Cass Scenic, and the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge!

Return to yesteryear and thrill to the sight of steam locomotives hauling vintage freight equipment! Hop aboard passenger trains operated especially for photographers! These trains stop at scenic and usually inaccessible locations where passengers disembark, set up their cameras while the trains back down the line, and then get spectacular action shots as the trains steam past their cameras!

At the Heber Valley Railroad in Utah and the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad in Maryland, hard-working steamers pull freight equipment including boxcars, tank cars and coal hoppers. This is the first "Photo Freight" operated by steam locomotive #75 since being acquired and overhauled by the Heber Valley.

On the Cass Scenic Railroad in West Virginia, old logging equipment is hauled by Shay locomotives to emulate the line's heritage. Shay #11 is making its first outing since being converted from oil to coal. In Colorado, the Durango & Silverton's annual Photographers' Special makes stops at locations deep in the Animas River Canyon where access is normally impossible. Recently-acquired locomotive #483 is a thrill to see in operation.

Enjoy the excitement of steam railroading performed in the timeless traditions of the past!

Made in 2001, this pentrex video shows railfans what makes photo specials so popular. Although the engines on both the Cass And Durango and Silverton railroads are still operational even to this day, both the consolidations are still disassembled in pieces today.

Additional remarks by Steamboy:
Narration: Just enough.
Narration CAN be turned off in special features.
Would kids enjoy this? Yes.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value:: Fair.
Recommend to others? A "Must Have"!
