In Search of Steam Vol 1 On the Mainline 2017 DVD5 of 5 (1)
2017 was a good year for mainline steam, and we traveled across the country "In Search of Steam" in order to film four of the biggest locomotives operating today. Our first stop was Ogden, UT in late April, where Union Pacific 4-8-4 #844 was being readied for a 2-day trip across Wyoming. This was the end of the "Boise Turn Special" and you'll see the Ogden to Rock Springs leg on April 27th, followed by Rock Springs to Cheyenne on the 28th. #844 put on a great show as she headed home amidst cold, windy, and wet weather.
