A once-in-a-lifetime steam excursion took place in June 1997 and Pentrex was on the spot with five camera teams to record the entire event. Union Pacific"s mighty 844, leading an A-B-A set of E-units and 18 matched passenger cars, made one last extraordinary trip through the Royal Gorge and over Tennessee Pass prior to UP"s closing of this historic line. Now you can relive the excitement of this thrilling steam adventure!

On Day One, you"ll follow the beautiful train as it heads south out of Denver on the Joint Line and into Canon City. Day Two brings you the sights and sounds of steam marching through the depths of the Royal Gorge, across the hanging bridge, up along the banks of the winding Arkansas River, blasting up grade to conquer 10,000-foot high Tennessee Pass, and heading down through Glenwood Canyon, a spectacular achievement! Day three features a high-speed chase across Utah"s magnificent desert landscapes, running past Green River and into Helper. In an awesome display of power, the 844 battles steep grades of Castle Gate and Soldier Summit. The final hours of the day see the train heading down through the Thistle tunnels and Provo, and arriving at Salt Lake City. Mainline steam just doesn"t get any better than this!

Another brilliant product from Pentrex. Fantastic scenery together with shiny diesels and the mighty 844 locomotive, with a matching train of 18 spotless U.P. cars of different types.
Dvd starts with the also spotless Ski train stock and locos departing Denver.
The Royal Gorge,Tennessee Pass and Soldier Summit all on one dvd, what a fantastic show.

Now here we are 20 years later. These events shown will never be repeated again and again due to money, merger, and safety concerns. Today only the canon city to parkdale portion of the abandoned mainline is now a tourist railroad with Rio grande f units.

Narration: Just enough.
Narration CAN be turned off in special features.
