In Search Of Steam Volume 2 DVD2 of 5 (1)
A superb winter day in Nevada's High Sierra, with Virginia & Truckee 2-8-0 #29 on a photo charter, followed by the Nevada Northern's photographers weekend, with 4-6-0 #40 and 2-8-0 #93 on passenger trains, freight trains and a work train. Atmospheric engine house and yard scenes, and out on the road, with some great stack talk.

The narration is just a short introduction into the history of the two railroads. Reading Wikipedia gives you a lot more information. There are no maps and no location information. In case of the V&T #29 2-8-0 is shown with two coaches running very slowly through an admittedly nice landscape. No information about the rebuilding program. This slow running leads to a locomotive very often enclosed in steam clouds (cylinder cocks open?). Not much to be seen of the locomotive in many scenes.
