A fascinating look at the monsters that ruled the eastern United States rail network for almost a generation. We open with scenes from Sunday River’s “Baltimore and Ohio” program and closes with Archie Julian’s two-part “Battle for the Blue Ridge” taking a close look at Norfolk & Western steam. The DVD features – with spectacular sync sound – the last and most efficient main line articulateds built in America, beginning with the B&O 2-8-8-4 “Yellowstone” locomotives.

Also see the rigid frame 2-6-6-6 Allegheny of the Chesapeake & Ohio, the world’s most powerful steam locomotive, as well as the President Class 4-6-2s on the crack B&O limiteds, “Cincinnatian” and “Washingtonian”. C&O streamlined Hudson’s haul “The Sportsman” and “The George Washington”. A single 2-6-6-6 westbound from Covington with 100 loaded hoppers creeps to the summit at barely 5 MPH and in contrast fast freights race thru White Sulfur and B&O articulateds pound thru Confluence and New Castle. This is a definitive study of these powerful articulated engines!

Narration. Sunday River Productions programs may feature Color film, B&W film, Music, Dubbed Sound and still photos.

    What I saw from the railroad segments was like a menagerie of monstrous machines designed for heavier loads to carry over great distances as they rumbled across the hills and mountains.
