"A railroad video classic!" - Trains magazine. Have you ever wanted to get "under the skin" of a steam locomotive? This amazing series offers a complete "stack to firebox" look at steam locomotive operation and maintenance. Color.
Volume 3: Freight Locomotive Road Operation. You learn the operation of three distinctly different freight steamers: a narrow gauge Shay, a 2-8-2 Mikado, and Norfolk & Western's awesome - and massive! - A-Class 2-6-6-4 #1218. You'll tackle 8½% grades, yank a mixed freight out West and highball down a main line. Can you smell the cinders?
