In this video, you'll see highlights from the 4449's operations in 1991, beginning with her trip over the scenic "Shasta Route" to reach the "Railfair '91" celebration in Sacramento, California. On her way back north, you'll see the 4449 roar up the Mount Shasta foothills in fresh snow in a sequence that will have you looking for the rewind button on your remote so you can watch it again and again! Then the scene changes to the Sacramento River Canyon, a rugged area complete with tunnels, rolling hills and the incredible Redding Trestle. It's all topped off by some high speed running as the train tries to beat the "Hog Law" and get in before the crew runs out of time. Described by Doyle McCormack, 4449 engineer, as the best 4449 video he has ever seen. Outstanding photo composition and mainline running under sunny skies in beautiful scenery.

Ever since I got this in the Milwaukee Road Baggage car during the SRI's Trainfestival 2009, it features unique action of the red and orange 4-8-4's 50th birthday excursions. SP 2472, & SP&S 700 also make appearances throughout the program. After all Engineer Doyle McCormack says that this was the best 4449 video tapes ever made.
