Winter Steam Volume 2 looks at two classic western steam railroads: the Nevada Northern in Ely, NV and the Durango and Silverton in Durango, CO. Filmed over 2 weekends in February 2013, this program features great steam action amidst cold winter weather.
The first segment covers the 2nd weekend of the annual Winter Photo Shoot at the Nevada Northern Railway Museum, held February 15-17 2013. 2-8-0 #93 and 4-6-0 #40 were both steamed up for the event and you'll see plenty of runbys with both passenger and freight trains. In addition to the action out on the line, you'll see scenes from the enginehouse and yard complex, including a demonstration with steam-powered Wrecking Crane A. We'll also climb aboard #40 for cab ride to the end of the line at Keystone. The railway is so well preserved; it truly feels as if you've travelled 100 years back in time.
The second segment of the program covers the Cascade Canyon Winter Train on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. K-28 class 2-8-2 #473 was the power for three days of regularly scheduled trains in late February 2013. The weather varied from sunny skies to heavy snow, and you'll see #473 working hard amidst the beautiful San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado.
