Milwaukee Road 261 Rebuilt to Run DVD Train Video
Click to enlargeNote: Cover image may differ from actual product
Excitement and anticipation were in the air on September 14, 1993 when engineer Steve Sandberg eased Milwaukee Road steam locomotive #261 back to life in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Northern type engine, painted high-gloss black, was running under her own power for the first time since her restoration.

A very good DVD on steam rail. Enjoyed seeing work done on the engine and a lot very good shots of the engine in action.

While Pentrex & Goodheart Productions were there to capture the first runs of the now 74 year old northern, The journeys were alright but unfortunately Pentrex made a mistake on the cover. It was listed as a 60 minute video but as I watched the program, its surprisingly an 80 Minute Video! Oh well.

nice to see the 261 return to the rails I think that the 261 and santa fe 3751 are cousins since they both were restored in the early 90's
