Review of 3751 Grand Canyon Special DVD

Exclusive presentation of a spectacular photo charter on the Grand Canyon Railway, plus round-trip coverage of the 3751 traveling from Los Angeles to the Grand Canyon.
In August 2002 legendary Santa Fe 4-8-4 No. 3751 marched back into the Steam Age...an iron behemoth thundering across the desert floor under a canopy of black smoke with a perfectly matched period passenger train...and without water cars or diesel helpers. Not just the Steam Age as it was, but as it was meant to be! This special dawn-to-sunset charter from Williams, Arizona to the Grand Canyon is the photographic highlight of 3751's 75-year career...a Goodheart exclusive found in full glory only on this video. We didn't stop there. Multiple cameras cover the 4 days of round-trip action to reach the NRHS convention site from Los Angeles... including leaving LAUPT, Cajon Pass, Kingman Canyon, Hell's Canyon Bridge and the Peavine Line.

Running time 80 minutes
