Review of SP&S 700 On the Portland & Western DVD

Watch SP&S 700 pull a freight train on the P&W Astoria branch. Then listen to the stack talk of the massive steam locomotive as it climbs Cornelius Pass on numerous photo run-bys across trestles and through the summit tunnel! The action continues as SP&S 700 pulls passenger trains along the Tualatin Valley, and up the Oregon Electric Line. Enjoy multiple excursions of the 4-8-4 locomotive on the Portland and Western Railroad, 100% digitally captured between 1998 and 2002.
