    Great coverage of Sacramento Steam ’99! We see UP 844, UP 3985, UP 4466, SP 4449, SP 2467, SF 3751, Shay Races, Double Headers, and so much more! There is a scene of a steam crane lifting a diesel locomotive, singing track gang, and the California State Railway Museum’s access track being lowered into placed over the SP mainline tracks.

    Excellent coverage of Railfair ’99 by Pentrex. This DVD follows the trips taken by UP 844 & 3985, SP 4449, and ATSF 3751 on their way to Sacramento. The aerial footage of Santa Fe 3751 over Cajon Pass is a good taste of what Pentrex’s other aerial films have to offer.

    Besides these main steam stars, Pentrex extensively covers all the participating locomotives and events featured at Railfair which otherwise would have been overshadowed by the visiting fan favorites. Overall this is a quite satisfying three hours of steam (and non-steam) action.
