Review of Union Pacific Big Boy Collection DVD

 4.6 of 5 (14)
The biggest, the strongest, the grandest American steam locomotive. Only 25 were built and now - for the first time - Pentrex shares ALL 25 of the Big Boys in action in the most incredible display of steam power ever!

A recently discovered film collection of professionally photographed 35mm movie film from 1953, combined with material from the Pentrex archives, makes this new production the ultimate tribute to the Big Boy!

Pentrex is proud to bring you each one of the 25 Big Boy locomotives - numbered 4000 to 4024 - in one thrilling display.

Several of the Big Boy locomotives were featured in the September 2001 issue of Trains Magazine. Now Pentrex gives you the opportunity to experience them all!

DVD Special Features:
  • Two stereo soundtracks, one with only the train sounds, the other with narration added. The viewer can switch the narration on or off at any time.

  • Chapter Menu provides instant access to program s
