Review of SP&S 700 on DVD by Machines of Iron

Machines of Iron crews followed the SP&S #700 on four trips over an eleven year span of time. In 1990, the 700 was a hit at the Central Washington Steamfest '90 carrying passengers from Portland to Pasco and Yakima to Ellensburg. In July 1999, the locomotive traveled between Portland and Hillsboro as the Portland and Western #700. We followed the 700 on a shake down trip in February 2001 between Vancouver and Longview.
