The age of steam may be long gone, but in St. Louis there is a link to that bygone era. Frisco 1522 may be a static display now, but until recently was a fully operational steam locomotive.

    This 2002 DVD showcases 1522 at the 2001 NRHS Convention in St. Louis as well as hauling the 2001 BNSF Employee Appreciation Special which is about the same time Pentrex was there for their Frisco 1522: Galloping Through Texas video. Today the locomotive is still on display at Kirkwood, but at least Decapod 1630 is marked/official as the only Frisco steam engine to ever operate, as well as CN 6060 as not only the largest operating steam engine in Canada, but also the only operational 4-8-2 in the present day. Again, I would Definitely recommend that you pick this up, or watch for 100% Free on Amazon Prime Video along with Most Of Les’ Videos.
