Running a Steam Locomotive Vol. 2: Passenger Road Locomotive Operation

Enjoy this very close look at the work of three veteran steam engine crews running passenger locomotives, and follow steam locomotive evolution from the turn of the century to the end of the era of steam. Start out on a Nevada Northern Ten Wheeler #40, journeying into the copper mining country above Ely, Nevada. T.J., an engineer with 38 years experience, demonstrates and lectures on the art of running a passenger steam locomotive. Next, spend a day with the crew of the Southern Pacific's Pacific #2472. This restored locomotive was first turned out in 1921. And finish the rail exploration in the cab of Union Pacific's Northern #844. This is the epitome of modern steam power, designed to pull a train of 26 cars at 90 miles per hour.  Also includes the Star Locomotive.
