Review of In Search Of Steam Volume 1 DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
In "In Search of Steam Volume 1" we take a look at SP 4-6-2 # 2472 on a Niles Canyon Railway photo charter. Then we see Union Pacific's big 4-8-4 #844 in Arizona hauling the Arizona Centennial special. Finally we visit the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railway's 2011 RailFest, with a K-28 and K-36's. Previews include 734 Photo Freight, Shays at Cass, Mountain Thunder, Steam over La Veta Pass, 3985, Berkshire Doubleheader and South African Steam - Cape Gauge.

Running time 55 minutes plus 55 minutes of steam previews. WIDESCREEN DVD
