In this now 5 year old DVD from 2014, this program features a week long visit to one of Americaï¿½s most popular steam powered tourist railroads. This 51 minute program features onboard rides from the coaches, in the cab, and also lots of trackside chases with the now 113 year old N&W locomotive. On different days during the May 2013 visit, 475 wore 2 different hooter whistles. First half was a deep hoot, and the second half was a medium to high type. The final segment in this program shows 475 on an early sunrise morning caboose hop to pick up a covered hopper at leaman place junction. That segment itself also contains some riding footage, mostly from the cupola of the caboose. While Great Western 90 was down for repairs during the visit, Canadian National 89 also makes a cameo appearance but it didnï¿½t operate during the 475 coverage. This is a great program for steam lovers, N&W fans, Lancaster county Pennsylvania visitors, and all Railfans everywhere who love to hear the sounds of the once Only operating N&W Engine in the 21st century until the return of J class 4-8-4 #611 in 2015.
