Big Boys & Challengers -Steam TrainDVD

Big Boys & Challengers -Steam TrainDVD
Click Here for Larger Image
This program contains 8mm footage by Warren Scholl, shot in 1954, but the majority of footage is 16mm color footage, including a good amount by Perry Becker who made more than one trip to the area.

Locations shown are North Platte, Cheyenne, Laramie, Rawlins, and of course action on Sherman Hill between Cheyenne and Laramie. You will see interesting things such as a "Big Boy" number 4006 on fire as it exits Hermosa Tunnel, with its stack hood still on as well. Also see a Gas Turbine leading a Big Boy in 3 different scenes.

You will see the engine service areas in the locations mentioned above, and see some of the dead engine lines late in the steam era. This footage is all shot silent of course, and we have added music and informative narration. However, we do have another segment with some 16mm sound footage on Sherman Hill which includes several doubleheaders, such as 5500 series 2-10-2\\\\\\\'s with Challengers and Big Boys. There are also a couple of Big Boy scenes by Everett Rohrer, and some film he shot of the first test run, and first excursions in 1982 when Challenger 3985 first operated. So, for all those lovers of BIG BOYS, and big articulated steam Giants this one is for you. From Greg Scholl Video
