Review of 844 Still Goin Strong DVD

 4.7 of 5 (3)
Union Pacific 4-8-4 steam locomotive #844 holds the unique distinction of being the only mainline class one steam locomotive to never be retired.

Now she's UP's goodwill ambassador, traveling far and wide over the Union Pacific system.

In this program, you'll follow 844 on some of her travels. See her as she runs from Cheyenne, Wyoming to Portland, Oregon, including Oregon's beautiful Blue Mountains. Next, follow her in Oklahoma and Texas, the you'll see her on the original UP mainline in Nebraska, Wyoming and Utah. Great steam action for any steam lover.

Approx. 85 minutes. DVD contains chapter menus and the ability to turn the narration on or off.
