For over a century, the sight of a legendary steam locomotive barreling across the countryside at top speed, blasting a column of thick smoke into the horizon was something to behold. Now you can ride through the history of steam trains, from the classic days of the 1920s to the twilight of the 1970s, in this fast-paced five-disc collection. For an action-filled, full color experience, this lavish production takes you on the ride of a lifetime aboard some of America's legendary steamers. Get set for the ultimate railway experience as we ride through never before-seen footage from steam's heyday in the 1920s, '30s and '40s and behold legendary steam trains as they make their way across America, from the steam shortlines of the South, to the Colorado narrow gauge through the Rio Grande and north to the trains of the Canadian Pacific Railroad. Marvel at logging steamers as they make their way through winter blizzards and the breathtaking colors of spring and fall and witness the steam era wind down in the '50s, '60s and '70s. Shot by some of the best videographers and steam train enthusiasts in the U.S., this beautifully photographed DVD collection is a must for all rail fans and one trip you won't soon forget.
