Review of More Roarin Runbys Steam in the Northeast and South DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
The steam locomotive is one of the most impressive machines of the industrial age, combining enormous power with dramatic displays of sight and sound. Each sequence on this fine program showcasing restored steam engines in the Northeastern United States is carefully chosen for visual excitement and great sound. You'll see in-depth coverage of each locomotive, including pacing sequences, our famous locomotive-mounted ChoochCam minicams, in-cab footage, and even helicopter shots! It's all there: high-speed sequences, trains blasting up heavy grades, huge smoke plumes, and extremely loud stack talk! Climb aboard for some memorable steam action! Locomotives featured:

Monson 0-4-4T 3 and Bridgton & Harrison 2-4-4T 7 at the Maine Narrow Gauge Museum, Portland, ME; Monson 0-4-4T 3 and B&HR 2-4-4T 8 at Edaville Railroad, MA; Susquehanna 2-8-2 142 in excursion service in NJ; C&O 4-8-4 614 pulling high-speed main line excursion trains from Hoboken, NJ to Port Jervis, NY• Can
