Shays in the Redwoods ~ Roaring Camp Railroads  Shays in the Redwoods ~ Roaring Camp Railroads

"Winding through picturesque coastal redwoods in California's Santa Cruz Mountains, the Roaring Camp & Big Trees Narrow Gauge railroad carries passengers on an unforgettable steam-powered odyssey. Of the several operational steam locomotives on the Roaring Camp & Big Trees roster, two 3-foot gauge Shays do the bulk of the work. No. 1, the Dixiana, is a 42-ton, two-truck Shay built in 1912. No. 7, the Sonora, is a 60-ton three-truck Shay built in 1911, and once served the Westside Lumber Company. "

 

South African Garratts  South African Garratts

"
The cloud of steam on the South African horizon belonged to the narrow gauge Garratt locomotives. Serving the industrial railways of South Africa in the 1990s, these articulated locomotives were hard workers. This 1995 trip on a special steam excursion recorded the Garratts on several railways, including a two and one-half foot gauge line. Not long after our trip, the Garratts were replaced by diesels. "

Southern Pacific Cab Forward Collection  Southern Pacific Cab Forward Collection

"For nearly 47 years, the Southern Pacific Railroad relied upon its massive AC-type steam locomotives to haul freight and passenger trains throughout California and neighboring states. Built to provide the power and flexibility demanded by the mountainous passes they traversed, these giants were constructed with their cab in front of the boiler, thus earning them the name Cab Forwards. The last Cab Forward revenue train ran in 1956, after which all but one were scrapped. From then on, film coverage of these AC-class engines was eagerly sought, hard to locate, and highly prized. Now, after years of research, Pentrex has assembled an awesome collection of footage and still images of SP AC-1s through AC-12s spanning the years 1927 to 1956. You'll see Cab Forwards in service on the Overland Route, the San Joaquin Line, the Sunset Route, the Coast Route, the Shasta Route, and the Modoc Line. You'll thrill to incredible images of Cab Forwards in the snow, on grades, bridges, and scenic valleys; running with mid-train and rear-end helpers; teamed with Black Widow F-units and GS-class helpers; and in meets with other CF's. The locomotives shown include nearly every class of Articulated Consolidation SP ever rostered: the Baldwin-built Cab Forwards and the Lima-built 3900 class AC-9s. Historic stills of the original cab forwards, the Baldwin-built MC, MM, and AM class engines, are also featured."

Steam Photo Freights & Passenger Extras
"
Photographers Specials on the Heber Valley, Western Maryland Scenic, Cass Scenic, and the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge! Return to yesteryear and thrill to the sight of steam locomotives hauling vintage freight equipment! Hop aboard passenger trains operated especially for photographers! These trains stop at scenic and usually inaccessible locations where passengers disembark, set up their cameras while the trains back down the line, and then get spectacular action shots as the trains steam past their cameras! At the Heber Valley Railroad in Utah and the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad in Maryland, hard-working steamers pull freight equipment including boxcars, tank cars and coal hoppers. This is the first "Photo Freight" operated by steam locomotive #75 since being acquired and overhauled by the Heber the Cass Scenic Railroad in West Virginia, old logging equipment is hauled by Shay locomotives to emulate the line's heritage. Shay #11 is making its first outing since being converted from oil to coal. In Colorado, the Durango & Silverton's annual Photographers' Specialmakes stops at locations deep in the Animas River Canyon where access is normally impossible. . . . ."

Steam Up in the Mountains    Steam Up in the Mountains

"Logging railroads were pretty rough and tumble affairs. Tracks were built quickly over rough terrain with plenty of sharp curves. Mainline locomotives were too stiff and fell off the tracks. A special breed of engine was needed. STEAM UP IN THE MOUNTAINS takes us into the logging country of the Pacific Northwest to a hidden location where these engines are kept alive.

Here, steam specialists (almost like wizards) conjure up life from rusty pieces of iron. They share insights about the development of the three different geared-locomotives designs, showing us how they work, and the strong and weak points of each design. Then they show us first hand what it takes to bring five of these logging locomotives to life for a big multi-day celebration for steam enthusiasts. The film ends with a five-locomotive quintuple-header...perhaps the only time this has been seen in well over 50 years.
