Join Goodheart Productions at Steamtown's 1996 Snow Spectacular to watch big steam thunder up the former Lackawanna, Pocono-mountain grade! Experience the dramatic elements of big-time steam railroading - passenger and freight trains storming up mountain grades in sun, heavy falling snow, even fog - in five memorable winter days. To capture the very essence of the experience in an hour-long video is nothing short of . . . spectacular!

Milwaukee Road 4-8-4 N. 261 pushing a wedge snowplow on the opening-day run
Passenger trains climbing the one percent grade through fresh fallen snow
The thrill of a cab ride, with the engineer and fireman describing the operation of 261 during a stirring rugby
Two days of freight-train railroading, including a classic you-hear-her-before-you-see-her sequence of 261 emerging out of fog
Action packed pacing shots from a hi-rail truck running ahead of 261 on an adjacent track
Plus an appearance by Canadian Pacific 4-6-2 No. 2317 including runbys

This now 22 year old video features incredible snow busting action, as not only 261 wore a Lehigh & New England decapod steamboat whistle, but also did an excellent job hauling freight and passenger specials to Tobyhanna. Not only was 261 the main star of the show, you�ll go in the plow, see a wedding in 261�s cab, as well as ice harvesting, plus CP 2317 taking photographers back to Scranton. Only 3 railroad video producers were there for the winter wonderland special such as goodheart productions, revelation video, and mainline motion pictures.

Additional remarks by Steamboy:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Yes.
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Seemed a little high, but not too bad.
Recommend to others? A "Must Have"!
