Review of Milwaukee Road 261 Steam in the North DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
One of the largest steam locomotives running today is Milwaukee Road 261. In this program you'll see this giant 4-8-4 pulling a series of excursions in North Dakota and Minnesota. Enjoy the steam action as she travels over the Red River Valley & Western's former Great Northern and Northern Pacific trackage, as well as on the BNSF.
See trips over these routes:

The RRV&W's 2nd Subdivision from Breckenridge, MN to Davenport, ND
The RRV&W's 4th Subdivision from Davenport to Lisbon, ND
The BNSF Morris Subdivision from Breckenridge to Willmar, MN
The BNSF Wayzata Subdivision from Wilmar to Minneapolis
If you like steam locomotive action, then you'll want to watch this again and again! Running time 70 minutes. DVD contains chapter menus and the ability to turn narration on/off.
