Review of Sacramento Steam 99 DVD

 4.4 of 5 (5)
Steam ruled the rails in Sacramento when the California State Railroad Museum hosted Railfair "99 and the NRHS and R&LHS scheduled their national conventions in Sacramento to coincide with the June 1999 event. Many of the major steam locomotives operating in the US plus dozens of other locomotives were in attendance to amaze and entertain an appreciative throng of over 175,000 visitors! Pentrex was on the spot capturing the events at Railfair "99 and the exciting NRHS/R&LHS excursions, including:
  • UP 3985 and 844 from Cheyenne, Wyoming to Sacramento
  • SP Daylight from Portland to Railfair "99
  • Amtrak excursions to Franklin Canyon and Altamont Pass
  • UP 844 excursion to Tehama
  • SF 3751 from Los Angeles to Sacramento
  • UP 4466 excursion on the Sacramento Southern Railroad
  • Boiler failure on the 844
  • UP Feather River Canyon excursion
  • Yolo Shortline steam excursion
