This DVD features the renaissance of steam in the South, with two living legends—engines 4501 and 610—returning to carry their flags before the public. Gleaming in green and gold #4501, the little Mike that started it all, charges through the New River Gorge and across the mountains. The Southern's Jim Bistline narrates the film, recounting the early struggles as the steam program grew. Then the monster 2-10-4 #610 breaks in with heavy freight on the old Fort Worth & Denver “Roller Coaster” main from Fort Worth to Wichita Falls; next, on the Freedom Train; and finally, double-heading across the Blue Ridge together with #4501.

The narration covered well the history of each of the locomotives, and if that is what you were interested in, it was done well. But otherwise it was just one run-by after another run-by. Price charged for only 36 minutes was excessive, way too much!
