Review of Santa Fe 3751: Route of the Chiefs DVD

 4.3 of 5 (3)
In 1992, Santa Fe"s mighty steam locomotive 3751 returned to the rails, this time to race from Los Angeles to Chicago and back. This Employee Appreciation Special was a grand opportunity for rail enthusiasts to relive the excitement of steam railroading in all its thundering glory.

Experience this magnificent Northern-type locomotive pulling its train at up to 70 miles per hour across some the nation"s most spectacular countryside. Great pacing sequences show the 4-8-4 at its best. Each segment of the long journey is shown, giving you a complete account of the entire 24-day trip. Enjoy steam railroading with the 3751 along the Route of the Chiefs!
