Manitoba Steam In The 50's DVD
Manitoba Steam In The 50'S
Originally produced by Rail Innovations this is a wonderful look at Canadian Steam in the province of Manitoba, where some of the last steam ended its days in Canada. It is divided into two parts, with Canadian National first, followed by Canadian Pacific. Photographer Newton Rossiter narrates the entire show and has plenty of insights regarding the engine classes, the places seen on the video, and other tidbits that are quite interesting. Generally most views are west of Winnipeg, including St. James Tower, Pacific Junction and many others. We see several of the 4-8-2's including number 6000, and some of the 6060 series as well as other smaller types.
On the Canadian Pacific side of things we see smaller classes, then the larger power such as 2-8-2's, 4-6-2's, 2-10-2's, and 4-6-4's. There is even one rare shot of number 3101 which was one of only two CPR 4-8-4's ever built. There is a shot of the famous Royal Hudson number 2860 in passenger service which is a nice addition as well.
