11 steam locomotives, 34 diesel sequences, over 3 1/2 hours on two DVDs.
One of the most exciting things for railfans is pacing; driving alongside as thousands of horsepower of locomotives go about their business. We have included pacing sequences in many of our titles over the years, and after it was suggested by a viewer we have now released a program entirely of pacing. This program was a quarter-century in the making, featuring footage shot from 1986 to 2013.
