See a variety of locomotives in action in this program, from big mainline double-headed power to small tourist railroad steam – all over the western USA. First we witness Union Pacific steam with 4-8-4 Number 844 and 4-6-6-4 number 3985 as they depart Cheyenne on the first segment of their journey to Sacramento in 1991. We see the doubleheader for two days running between Cheyenne and Salt Lake City. Then we watch 2 days of 3985 running solo as it makes a pair of round trips from Salt Lake City to McCammon. This is the largest operating locomotive in the world and the Union Pacific never disappoints you with the great action. Our next segment is the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad with 2-8-2 #5 operating in this scenic area. You will see mostly lineside views of the train, but there is also a nice little cab ride segment. Next we travel to Colorado to see a variety of engines on the Durango and Silverton railroad. You will see 2-8-2;s number 476 and 481 on passenger runs, and 497 on a work train. Completing our Steam In the West is the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic railroad in 1991, with the first passenger train of the year, after the Rotary snowplow had cleared the line. There is an interesting twist to this run on a lovely cold morning. Standard gauge, and narrow gauge in the Rockies.
