Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

Travel through the south in the early 60s and discover some of the last steam operating in the United States. Rail photographer Mac Owen captured seven operations including the Reader Railroad when it was still a steam powered common carrier.

Owen discovered some unusual steam engines featured in this film: a wood-burning 2-6-2; a "fireless cooker" at the North American Rayon Company; and an old Southern Pacific engine working for a gravel company. On the affectionately-named "Tweetsie" railroad in Tennessee, the ex-Southern RR number #630 was hard at work moving freight. This engine still steams in excursion service today! Ingenuity and grit kept these steam locomotives working long after main line steam retired. Color, 46 minutes.

So far, this is the only way to get the reader railroad 11 locomotive in its vintage film shots prior to the TTI trips. Remember, Only Greg School had the most footage of the little 2-6-2 in operation before the CSX purchase.

Additional remarks by Steamboy:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: A little rough around the edges.
DVD Value: Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
Recommend to others? Yes.
