Review of 4449 Hi-Line Cab Ride DVD

 4 of 5 (1)
4449 Hi-Line Cab Ride. You're in the cab of Southern Pacific 4449 as it traverses BNSF's busy Hi-Line from Havre to Shelby, Montana! Running commentary by SP4449 Fireman Pat Tracy explains what it takes to keep the massive steam locomotive running on a transcontinental mainline. The undulating profile provides lots of action as Engineer Bill Stetler and Fireman Justin Tracy respond to the track profile, meet freight traffic, and blow for small town crossings as they race across North Central Montana.
Run time 60 minutes. Widescreen.
Commentary on Audio Track 1. Natural Sound Only on Audio Track 2.

Bonus Onboard Over Marias Pass. The cameras continue to roll from the crew cars as we head over Marias Pass and the Continental Divide. Ride onboard the steam special and enjoy the mountain views, tunnels, snow sheds, rivers and grades of Marias Pass. Run time 25 minutes. Widescreen. Natural Sound.
