Big steam locomotive power ventured onto the high iron during the summer of 1998, and Pentrex was on the spot to capture the excitement for your enjoyment!

Our adventure begins with Milwaukee Road 261. This shiny black beauty led an excursion on the Twin Cities & Western in Minnesota, ran on the BNSF mainline from Chicago to Galesburg, and teamed up with Algoma Central F-units on the Wisconsin Central out of Green Bay. Then we climb into the cab of Nickel Plate 587 for a ride through the Indiana countryside and chase SP Daylight 4449 from Portland to Bend, Oregon. The scenic wonders of the Columbia River Gorge and Deschutes River Canyon are perfect backdrops to Daylight's billowing clouds of steam and smoke and classic good looks.

Pentrex was there when Union Pacific 844, joined by Centennial diesel 6936, journeyed from Denver, Colorado to Cheyenne, Wyoming for UP's only public excursion of the year. And we attended "Steamfest in the Valley" at Osceola, Wisconsin where the year's most thrilling event took place - a steam tripleheader featuring Northern Pacific 328, Soo Line 2719 and Soo Line 1003! The major events of the steam railroading year are here for you to enjoy in Steam '98!

There is some REALLY good footage on this DVD. I wish that Pentrex (or someone else) still made "yearly" steam reviews like this, I'd be purchasing a lot of them. That said, some of the footage of Milwaukee Road 261 is great, and the variation of events covered during the year is really good. My favorite segment, however, has to be the Wisconsin steam featured at the end, with the triple-header and such. I only wish there were more of that footage in this video.

a decent presentation of some great old time locos. Steam excursion at it's finest in various locations. The triple header in steam was fun to watch. A good video.
