Boston & Maine Steam - Heavy Haulers and Crack Limiteds DVD
Travel back to the mid-1930s to see action on the busiest divisions of the Boston & Maine.
Steam locomotives work the Portland, New Hampshire and Fitchburg Divisions and the Connecticut Valley Line in both summer and winter. Huge hulking Berkshires battle the Ashburnham grade. High stepping passenger varnish‚ÄĒ‚ÄúThe Flying Yankee,‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúThe Alouette,‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúThe Red Wing‚ÄĚ‚ÄĒgo screaming by, as do similar name trains with brass-railed observation cars. Witness the unusual stainless steel streamliner, ‚ÄúThe Flying Yankee,‚ÄĚ leaving Portland (Maine) Union Station. Other highlights include the Union Pacific‚Äôs streamlined M-10001 ‚ÄúCity of Salina‚ÄĚ on tour; the Rexall Special with its streamlined New York Central Hudson; and a whistle stop with Republican Alf Landon campaigning for President in 1936 against Franklin D. Roosevelt!
