Review of Milwaukee Road 261 on the New River Train DVD

During the Blizzard of '96, Milwaukee Road 261 put on quite a show on Steamtown's former DL&W main line. We'll see towering clouds of thick white/black/gray smoke as 261 tackles rails and weather. It is 10 degrees out as the 261 heads up the steep grade. Her wheels slip as she tries to grip the icy cold rails. When she gets going, we see steam and smoke as she makes the grade.Rock steady tripod shots and great stereo sound! As a bonus, we get to see some 1995 Fall Weekend runs! Color, Stereo Sound. No narration.

Overall rating for this DVD? 5 Star Excellent
4 Star Very Good
3 Star Good
