Real Tank Engines
Meet the little engines on the BIG railroads. An adventure for both kids and adults! This delightful video introduces you to REAL Tank Engine friends you'll never forget:
Dinky, Quincy, Rocky, Mason, Hammond, & Robert Dollar. The finest bunch of steam engines you'll ever hope to meet.
Meet the real, full-sized tank engines that actually ran on our railroads.
Tank engines were once as common as chocolate chip cookies. Now there are only a few of them left. And they are hiding in places you'd least expect them.
Come along on a "little" train adventure BIG enough for the whole family.
Bonus Audio Track: A click of a button turns this fun children's video into an informative documentary for all ages.
From the filmmaker: "This show is a little different from our others...for a couple reasons. 1st...the subject matter. We chose the most common and yet most over-looked type of steam engine in the world... the tank engine. The diminutive little iron horse that was part of every railroad, no matter how big or how small. Although I really like steam locomotives, I kind of dismissed tank engines as not being all that interesting.But, since producing this video, all that has changed."
I guess owe a debt of gratitude to my kids. When they were little we spent a lot of time with Thomas the Tank Engine. And that got me to thinking. The result is a video that is so much fun to watch, you may well be showing it to everyone... even the non-railfans you may know.
Wholesome family entertainment.
