Review of Union Pacific Trilogy DVD

 4 of 5 (1)
Pentrex presents three rare films from the vaults of the Union Pacific Historical Society that have never before been released to the general public. These films, which were produced by the Union Pacific Railroad during the 1960s and 1980s, are now available for your entertainment!

"¢ Rivers of Steel (10 minutes): Produced for UP's display at the 1984 World's Fair in New Orleans, this film depicts many of the railroad's routes along America's rivers. The territory ranges from Feather River Canyon in California to the Huey P. Long Bridge over the Mississippi River in New Orleans.

"¢ Eighty Four Forty Four (11 minutes): Many have proclaimed the 800 class Northern-type 4-8-4 as the finest locomotive ever to run on the Union Pacific. This film from 1981 shows the 8444 in action, and you'll hear recollections from the employees that knew her best. With the camera clamped onto the main rods, you'll see this locomotive up close like never before!
