Among the handful of restored steam locomotives operating in the USA, Frisco 4-8-2 "Mountain" type, No. 1522 has won the eyes and ears of rail enthusiasts. The 1522 is a typical 1920's locomotive that moved freight and passengers with brute force. Later steam locomotives may be larger and rely on fancy appliances, but it's doubtful that any of them shake the earth like the 1522 does! Here's gut-wrenching, full-bore action captured during no less than 12 different trips! This is the ultimate 1522 video tape! You'll see the 1988 Fon du Lac Winsconsin to Chicago freight break-in runs and first fan trips! Then it's lots of other action, including DOUBLEHEADING with Union Pacific 844, several trips out of St. Louis and even scenes from her runs in the deep south. In 1994 the 1522 headed off to Atlanta, Georgia and Birmingham, Alabama to run trips for the NRHS convention there. These trips included DOUBLHEADING with N&W 611! You'll also see a pure freight consist with no tool car in the train.
