Review of 3025 A Chinese Mikado in the Connecticut River Valley DVD

 4.6 of 5 (5)
She was built half a world away, and once worked in Pennsylvania, but now she steams through the Nutmeg State on former New Haven Railroad trackage. She's Valley Railroad #3025, a Chinese Mikado hard at work hauling tourists in the beautiful Connecticut River Valley. Come along with Pentrex as we share the story of this most interesting 2-8-2.

We'll talk to renowned railroad photographer Tom Nanos, who describes the engine's rebuild in Connecticut after a devastating roundhouse fire in Pennsylvania. Next we'll go trackside as #3025 struts her stuff on a chartered photographer's train. Then we'll watch as two Mikados are steamed up for a day's work - a rare sight in the 21st century. All this and more awaits you in this new Pentrex release: 3025 - A Chinese Mikado in the Connecticut River Valley.
