Review of 8444 Rides Again - The Greatest Road Trip Ever DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
The grand saga of the only steam locomotive never to have been retired takes you on the 8444's greatest road trip ever - over 4,875 miles! The 8444 travels to Los Angeles to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Union Passenger Terminal. Then it races SP's Daylight 4449 side by side through Cajon Pass. In Oregon, it steams up the scenic Blue Mountains, then barrels down the Columbia River Gorge amidst springtime splendor. It's a rail adventure you'll be proud to own!
