Review of Climbin to the Grand Canyon DVD

More than 20 years after the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway discontinued regular passenger service to the Grand Canyon steam power returned to the line. Former Lake Superior & Ishpeming 2-8-0 18 is the motive power and she puts on quite a show with her consist of former Southern Pacific Pullman green Harriman coaches.

Cold temperatures and lots of snow make for some absolutely stunning images, in the high country around the Grand Canyon. In the comfort of your home, you’ll stand trackside in the winter, when the uncluttered countryside lies under a fresh blanket of snow. If you enjoy watching steam locomotives working hard in the snow, this video is for you!
