big steam is back is a 90 minute video based on the 100 page magazine by trains magazine (i like that magazine a lot and i really liked the video) in this program there's a look into all of the stars of the main line and the current restorations going on for the steam stars there's interviews with the groups of the usa's notable steam locomotives norfolk & western 611 southern 4501 milwaukee road 261 nickel plate road 765 pere marquette 1225 union pacific 844 southern pacific 4449 Spokane Portland & Seattle 700 santa fe 3751 as well as western Maryland sinec railroad 734 and reading & northern 425 today's restorations include santa fe 2926 c&o 1309 plus c&o 2716 nc&stl 576 reading 2102 and the anticipated one of them all union pacific big boy 4014 (and a mention that union pacific 3985 will return after the restoration of the 4014) the only downfall i have is that i wish other steam engines were mentioned even some that weren't talked about like soo line 1003 grand canyon railway 4960 and 29 a talk about southern 630 plus the biggest one i thought the strasburg railroad with great western railway 90 norfolk & western 475 and Canadian national 89 plus the restoration on reading 2100 (which was in the magazine) but that's the only downfall i know they couldn't include every steam engine in the united states but overall a vary solid video i'm happy to own
