The biggest steam locomotives in the country traveled to Sacramento in June 1999 to attend the last Railfair of the 20th century. Pentrex captured Union Pacific 844 and 3985, and Southern Pacific 4449 as they made their way to Sacramento from their home terminals.
Pentrex camera crews filmed so much great footage, it wouldn’t all fit into our epic program Sacramento Steam ’99. So we assembled this video from all new sequences featuring the UP 844/3985 doubleheader from Cheyenne, Wyoming to Roseville, California and SP Daylight 4449’s journey from Portland, Oregon to Sacramento.
This DVD presents the locomotives with all natural sound and no narration. On-screen graphics indicate the location of each runby. Thrilling mainline steam action awaits you in Steam to Railfair ’99!
