Review of 4449 Michigan Odyssey Vol 3 Michigan to Montana DVD

4449 Michigan Odyssey Volume III: Michigan to Montana
4449 Michigan Odyssey Volume III follows Daylight Steam Locomotive 4449 from Michigan to Havre, Montana. After attending Train Festival 2009, the massive steam engine travels across Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin to Minneapolis, Minnesota. Watch SP4449 pull both round-trip Fall Color Excursions along the Mississippi River between Minneapolis and La Crescent, Minnesota. Enjoy great onboard and trackside action as 4449 travels across Minnesota, North Dakota, and Eastern Montana to Havre. Unseasonably cold temperatures make for great steam exhaust! Witness awesome pacing footage of SP4449 at mainline speed.
