 5 of 5 (1)
These shows have not been available for decades, Pentrex has brought them back by restoring and enhancing these rare videos

C&O 614T, The March to Hinton You are taken to the coal fields of West Virginia to witness the story of the last commercially built 4-8-4 and yet an all new test to use coal for powering locomotives…in 1985! Performing trials for the ACE3000 coal project #614T hauls heavy coal trains between Huntington and Hinton WV. Watch as this incredible locomotive battles snow and -80 wind chills in the New River Gorge. 31 minutes.

The Hassayampa Special In 1991, Grand Canyon Railway 2-8-0 No. 18 led a rare off-line trip along “The Peavine.” Departing Williams, Arizona, the vintage train completed its 205-mile journey in two days, passing Ash Fork, Little Hell Canyon, Hell Canyon Bridge, and the Hassayampa River on its way to Phoenix. 23 minutes.

Available in DVD and Blu-Ray (Full HD at 1080). Menu with chapters. Previews.
