 5 of 5 (1)
Challenger #3985 -vs- Class 'A' #1218

Which is the biggest? The most powerful? Which is the best locomotive?

Part 1: A very clear comparison of the specifications and technical differences andsimilarities between the two giants.

Part 2: 3985 on fantrip from Cheyenne, Wyoming to Laramie and return. Features cab ride, pacing and trackside scenes.
