Steam Giants on the Colorado Plateau

  • $34.95

During the one time #3751 was in Williams, Arizona, the Grand Canyon Railway had 2 of its own steam engines all fired up and ready to join in the spectacle.

This included former CB&Q #4960 in what has now become (sadly) an extremely rare public appearance.

3751's crew (members of the San Bernardino Railroad Historical Society) take us on a tour of 3751's remarkable cab.

Discover how this 1927 steam locomotive was restored to function perfectly on a modern railroad system.

A highlight of Steam Giants sees 3751 & 4960 double-heading a vintage passenger train to the rim of the Grand Canyon.

Included in the production are scenic, trackside runbys along The Grand Canyon Line... a branch line built over 100 years ago by the Santa Fe Railway.

Bonus Feature:

Railroad Stories

Throughout both of these films, we are blessed with occasional insights about steam railroading from Phil and George. These fellas both worked for the Santa Fe Railroad during the last days of steam. So, they really know what they're talking about from a true historical perspective. They even ran 3751 back in the days of the Santa Fe.

Phil and George go way back. And when old railroad buddies get together, is there any shortage of rollicking tales?

We were lucky enough to let the cameras roll when these two started reminiscing. We put together some of their recollections in a bonus section on the STEAM GIANTS DVD called Railroad Stories. I can't watch it without laughing out loud...and I've seen it countless times. It's funny, fascinating...and touching. Don't miss it.
