In February of 1989 a very special event took place in the Northwest. The Southern Pacific Daylight 4449 pulled a train with six dome cars from Seattle to Wenatchee over Burlington Northern tracks through the Cascades. The reason for the celebration was the state's Centennial and Winter Games.

It was a spectacular trip with a great looking train. The SP 4449 pulled a passenger train, which included four Tour Alaska dome cars, plus two Ultra Dome cars from the Midnight Sun Express. These cars are used in Alaska and were brought down for this special trip. The special train traveled between Wenatchee and Leavenworth each day carrying passengers and contestants participating in the Winter Games. The weather was cold and the train provided a great show in the snow each day.

Also on hand was the number 5 from the Mount Rainier Scenic Railroad. This 2-8-2 steam locomotive also pulled a special excursion train each day from Wenatchee to Chelan for more of the special events taking place.

If you like steam in the snow, this is a great DVD!

Nearly 30 years ago, one of 4449�s well-known trips for 1989 besides the 50th anniversary of LA union station, as well as shooting for Warner Brother�s Come See the Paradise, Was one of the most rarely seen events in Pacific Northwest railroading history. Besides the now 76 year old Northern, The Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad�s now disassembled Porter built Mikado #5 is also shown hauling school kids to the winter games. Fun fact Alert: Only Pentrex & Dave Goodheart productions were there for the steam specials while other well known video producers are busy shooting their own projects and/or editing what they shot back in '88.

I'm in the middle of watching this video now and can already tell you that it is very much worth picking up. Great steam action featuring #4449 and Mt. Rainier Scenic #5, a small-drivered 2-8-2 (even running on the mainline - wow!) pulling trips amongst the amazingly beautiful mountainous terrain of the state of Washington in the winter. This is definitely worth picking up!!!
