Review of Legends of Steam Vol 2 DVD SP 4449 & UP 844

 5 of 5 (2)
Legends of Steam Volume II
Witness SP 4449 and UP 844 double-heading for the first time in excursion service! With complete coverage of the Puget Sound Steam Special, this program includes all four days of the locomotives in action: from Portland to Tacoma, both round trips from Tacoma to Everett, and the return trip to Portland. See and hear the two 4-8-4 Northern locomotives from onboard and trackside vantage points; re-live this once in a lifetime steam event!
Run time 80 minutes. Widescreen.
Narration on Audio Track 1.
Natural Sound on Audio Track 2.

Expanded Onboard Section. There's so much extensive onboard footage, that it can't all fit in the main program. Ride onboard the steam special and enjoy the views along the shores of Puget Sound!

Bonus Shots. Extra clips of the Puget Sound Steam Special, Amtrak, Sounder commuter trains, and freight train action.
