Description

This is a fast paced program with great footage of several U.S. and Canadian railroads around the Great Lakes. First we see Nickel Plate Road steam, with the now famous 2-8-4 number 765 in freight service. We see steam in freight service around Chicago and west of Buffalo. In addition we see two of the neat 4-6-4 Hudsons. Number 173 is seen at Chicago and Calumet roundhouse, while 175 is seen in a 1958 fan trip from Buffalo. Next we enjoy a few clips of seldom seen Duluth, Winnipeg, & Pacific in the Duluth area with ex- GTW 2-8-2 3425, and another engine which is a 2-8-0.

The next segment features a few shots of Grand Trunk Western with mostly 4-8-4’s on freight and passenger runs, plus a couple of 4-6-2’s on short passenger trains. A neat meet is seen at Durand with 6315. Other 4-8-4’s include 6314, 6321, and streamlined 6410. Next we visit the Duluth, Missabe, and Iron Range with its 2-8-8-2 Yellowstones. This has mostly ore trains 5 different engines spotted, plus another one, number 222 on a fan trip shot on July 5, 1958.

The final 1/3 of the show is CPR and CN fan trips in Ontario with things like CPR 4-6-2 number 2663 out of Montreal, and a neat trip with 4-6-2 1271 double-heading with a now famous Royal Hudson, number 2839 (this engine ran on the Southern Rwy in 1979-80). We also see a few clips of Royal Hudson 2857 on what turned out to be its final run. To wrap up we see several clips of CN 4-8-4 number 6167.
