Review of 614 on the B&O - The Phoenix Engine

 5 of 5 (1)
Follow the 614 west out of Cumberland and into the tough mountain grades of the ex-B&O main line. 22 miles on Sand Patch and 17 Mile Grade give the 614 all she can handle and then some!

There are lots of great runbys in this video, plus some awesome pacing scenes on 17 Mile Grade.

You'll also see an interview with Ross Rowland, 614's owner and engineer, as he tells the story of the resurrection of the 614 out of the ashes of Reading 2101.
