Description

The biggest, the strongest, the grandest American steam locomotive! Only 25 were built and now – for the first time – Pentrex shares ALL 25 of the Big Boys in action in the most incredible display of steam power ever! A recently discovered film collection of professionally photographed 35mm movie film from 1953, combined with material from the Pentrex archives, makes this new production the ultimate tribute to the Big Boy! Pentrex is proud to bring you each one of the 25 Big Boy locomotives – numbered 4000 to 4024 – in one thrilling display. Several of the Big Boy locomotives were featured in the September 2001 issue of Trains Magazine. Now Pentrex gives you the opportunity to experience them all! “Union Pacific Big Boy Collection” is truly an amazing feat!

“Railfan & Railroad” reviewer Tom Kelcec agreed, saying in the April, 2003 issue, “The bottom line here is simply, “buy this program.” A number of Big Boy videos are on the market, most from Pentrex or its predecessors, but here, in one place, is all the familiar footage plus some new and really exceptional imagery that’s never before been seen. Skillful editing packages this in a unique way: between the prologue and epilogue, each of the 25 engines built is covered in numerical sequence by combining all the imagery available from all sources (including eleven cinematographers).”

  1. 5 out of 5 Awesome production

    I am not a big steam engine enthusiast however due to the extreme popularity of this steam locomotive I felt I must at lest give it a shot. The photography and narration are both very interesting and the scenes shown throughout the DVD are pretty amaxing although time relevant in quality. If you are a real steam fan, you must consider ordening this production as you will not be disappointed.

    Do not own myself, but I know someone who owns it and have seen it. A very good collection of video, put together nicely and very informative. Defiantly a must buy if you love steam.
