Review of Guatemala Winter Journey DVD

Revelation Journeys, Ffestiniog Travel and Ferrovias Guatemala combined to operate a series of trains in February, 2006, covering the 197 mile Atlantic Division. Baldwin 2-8-2 #204, repainted into her as delivered I.R.C.A. dress, operated on freight and passenger trains. Two other days, six motor MLW and four motor G.E.s pulled revenue freight plus a coach. See unloading and switching at "Zone 12" yard in Guatemala City. Visit the abandoned Escuintla roundhouse, and stroll out on the crumbling dock at San Jose, now used for fishing. This program supplements our two previous titles: "Central Doubles" (2001, Includes El Salvador), and "Ferrovias Guatemala - A Second Look" (2005 with ride, on MLW pulling freight and Puerto Barrios dock operations).
