Soo Line 2719 is a H-23 Class 4-6-2 Pacific Locomotive that was built by Alco in 1923 – and still runs today. The Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sault Ste. Marie Railroad (The Soo Line) used this steam locomotive in passenger train service until its retirement in 1959. 2719 has had more than one career since retirement. This action packed DVD features a brief look at two restorations, and then exciting operational highlights, including excursions with trackside run-bys, cab rides & pace scenes. 2719 still runs, although she now runs out of Duluth, Minnesota on the North Shore Scenic Railroad.
In this DVD, you’ll see highlights from her first running out of retirement: Restoration Work, Osceola Steamfest, Test & Break-In Runs, Steamin’ on the GB&W, Photographers Special, Ferry Moves, Double & Triple Headers, Cab ride & Pace Scenes, Steamorama II, St. Croix Highbridge Trip, Chippewa Valley Trips and Steamin’ on the WGN. Plets Express programs feature an insert that includes helpful information about the program and a map of the area seen.
