Review of Skookum Lives The Lazarus Locomotive in Action DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
In this DVD, Trains looks at the amazing steam locomotive called Skookum, also known as the Lazarus locomotive. Only one of six built, this 1909 locomotive was rejected, accepted, and left for dead in 1955, and revived in 2019.

We'll cover the history, the lore, and the restoration before we take you along to enjoy four days of operations in spectacular scenery at the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad in March 2019.

Running Time: 65 minutes plus 15 minutes of bonus footage!

Overall rating for this DVD? 5 Star Excellent
4 Star Very Good

2 Star Fair
