Running a Steam Locomotive Vol. 1, 2, 3 (3 Disc Set)

Volume 1 is a complete and detailed hands-on video portrait of the anatomy, care and running of the Iron Horse on a full scale steam locomotive.  Using a Baldwin 0-4-0 engine, the viewer starts out just like an apprentice crew member in the heyday of steam, learning the Basics of Steam Locomotive Operation.  Volume 2, Passenger Locomotive Road Operation, shows the work of three veteran steam engine crews running passenger locomotives, and follows steam locomotive evolution from the turn of the century to the end of the era of steam.  Volume 3, Freight Locomotive Road Operation, looks at the work of the engine crews of three very different freight locomotives, and the evolution of the steam motive power. It begins on Shay #1 of the Roaring Camp and Big Trees Narrow Gauge.  Those wishing to learn about steam from the ground up will find Volume 1 an invaluable tool.  Others interested in the nuances of various engines and how they are operated will like Volumes 2 & 3.
