Here are two spectacular programs featuring Union Pacific Challenger 4-6-6-4 3985 - the world's largest operating steam locomotive - at work on freight and passenger trains between Cheyenne, Wyoming, and Omaha, Nebraska.

CLOSE UP: 3985 opens with a brief history of the Challengers, illustrated with rare color archive film, which also includes beautiful color scenes of Union Pacific 4-8-4s, 4-12-2s, and the legendary Big Boy 4-8-8-4s. Contemporary action begins as the 3985 departs Cheyenne and accelerates to 55 m.p.h. for the run over Archer Hill. To supplement exciting trackside, in-cab, and pacing sequences, Mark I Video's exclusive ChoochCam locomotive-mounted minicams capture thrilling closeup views of drivers, rods, and valve gear, offering a unique perspective of this magnificent machine in action. Beautifully-photographed night action views, and even exquisite sunrise shots, are also included!

PACING THE CHALLENGER features spectacular rock-steady side-by-side pacing sequences of the 3985 on a 1990 run between Omaha and Cheyenne. You'll thrill to start-ups, meets, lengthy high-speed runs, and breathtaking views of two sets of drivers in action, complete with superb crystal-clear sound! A true railfan classic!
