Review of Circus Train DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
Chicago & North Western 4-6-0 steam locomotive 1385 teams up with two F7 diesels to pull the 29-car Circus World Museum train from Baraboo to Milwaukee!

This unique program presents a comprehensive history of the circus train, from its 19th Century origins to the modern day operations of the Barnum & Bailey train. The development of the Circus World train is described, followed by complete coverage of a two day excursion.

Steam locomotive 1385 and her long train of authentic circus flatcars carrying colorful wagons and tableaux are a beautiful sight as they travel to Milwaukee. The famous Ten-Wheeler has an unusually loud exhaust, which should delight all railroad buffs. This program is a "must" for your railroad videotape collection!
