What can I say About this one? It is absolutely awesome! It brings back to the switch of the 19th to 20th centuries, when 315 operated over 110 years ago! Not To Mention A bonus segment featuring the galloping goose!

I enjoy the narrow gauge steam of Colorado, and I've always liked the quality of discs from this company, so I always was going to enjoy this Disc. This is a fabulous Disc apart from the minor irritation of a hand held camera on a moving train. On a big screen TV this movement is accentuated and distracts from an otherwise winning presentation. This Disc held my attention for its whole duration, and I derived much pleasure from viewing it. If you like narrow gauge steam this disc is for you. Bluray clarity is wonderful to the eye.

This is a great quality video, very well produced. As a fan of the Colorado Narrow Gauge it was of special interest to me and I wasn't disappointed. It is nice to see a video devoted to a different engine from the usual mikados found on the narrow gauge, and the footage of the Galloping Goose was also great. Highly recommended for anybody that loves the narrow gauge.

I haven't actually seen the movie, other than the few minutes on the web page. I sent it as a gift to my 2-year old grandson, who loves trains. He loved this video.

2-8-0 Consolidation #315 was built in 1895 by Baldwin for the Florence and Cripple Creek Railroad as their #3. After a major flood in 1912, the F&CC was unable to finance the cost of rebuilding and ceased operations. 315 was stranded until being bought by the Denver and Rio Grande where it served until 1948 (315 was leased to RGS for 2 years). 315 was displayed in various parks until 2001, when the Durango Railroad Historical Society restoration began. This DVD was shot in July 2008. This DVD is in the 16X9 Widescreen format.
