Review of Challenger Union Pacifics Legend of Steam DVD Railway Productions

 5 of 5 (2)
If you like big steam, there nothing running bigger than Union Pacific's massive #3985, "The Challenger".

This program follows the 3985 from North Platte, Nebraska to St. Paul, Minnesota, then from Fremont, Nebraska, through North Platte, then on to the Challenger's home base in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

There's many great runbys, as well as mile after mile of pacing, some at 60 mph or faster. If you like big steam, then you'll love this program.

DVD features chapter menus, and the ability to turn the very limited narration on or off. Approx 85 minutes.
