Review of Victorian Iron Horse Roundup DVD

A once-in-a-lifetime event, the Victorian Iron Horse Roundup in August 2021 united five operating pre-1900 steam locomotives at Colorado's spectacular Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. In this DVD, Trains covers the action of these old, great locomotives in operation!

In August 2021, the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic gathered five operating pre-1900 steam locomotives to celebrate the preservation railroad's 50th anniversary. In this DVD, Trains covers the action of these old, great locomotives in operation: Eureka, Glenbrook, Rio Grande Nos. 168 and 425, plus Rio Grande Southern No. 20.

Additionally, we'll look at Sunset on the Rio Grande, a Trains Magazine special event with RGS 20 and Extra 493, another Trains event at the Durango & Silverton with Rio Grande 2-8-2 No. 493 and visiting Southern Pacific 4-6-0 No. 18 from California. Two weeks of great narrow gauge action brought to you in 90 minutes!

Approximate run time: 90 minutes
