Review of 1522 A Grand Farewell Frisco DVD

 5 of 5 (1)

It's the last two days of the loudest locomotive in contemporary service, plus footage of her 2002 NRHS Convention trip, exclusive coverage of her break-in on freight service and more.You'll see nine sequences of climbing up Iron Hill and eight sequences of climbing Rolla Hill including pacing of one section of Rolla Hill.

Add to that more pacing, on train footage, and some of the best glint shots you
