    Saw this and the first volume in the series. Much more in depth than the green frog. Not knocking green frog but I love Clear Block as his videos are put together nicely. Clear Block really did their research on these productions. Its a shame there were not more Clear Block videos.

    This once 1997 video features some amazing flashbacks to the WM’s final days of regular service in the 70’s, plus some present action with the now disassembled Lake Superior & Ishpeming 2-8-0 #734.
