Well first of all it shows history of locomotive 41 using silent film clips which was later used in vintage steam in the east from 2017 and features some music from different performers on board the train as well as being surrounded by robbers plus the final 5 miles down the line in the cab of #41. The only activity for real railfans however, is the pacing sequence of Canadian National 4-8-2 #6060 on its way to coronation before the 60 mile line has since been ripped up, which does feature service shots of the locomotive at the destination. More trackside scenes from Stettler to coronation can be shown in CN 6060 Steam special. Which was released a year after this program was made. For an extra bonus at nearly 30 minutes, there is a musical montage of different animals that was quite similar to the 1998 program �mountain wildlife�. For previews however, there is only 1 on this dvd, which is �Deshler Mainline Crossroads�.
