SP Steam Fantrips DVD
Our look at SP Steam Fantrips starts in 1951 and ends in 1958 with the final SP steam fantrip. We will enjoy Cab Forwards, 4-8-2's, 4-8-4's including 4443 and 4460, 4-6-0's, 2-8-0's, AC9 articulated engine, 4-10-2's and 4-6-2 pacifics including 2475. There is a wide variety of trackage seen which includes seeing some steam in regular service from the excursions. There are several trips where multiple engines were used during the day, or over several days. It is really amazing to see all this different steam power, and the variety of destinations. On one trip from Oakland to Santa Cruz there were 3 engines used each way. Toward the end of steam we see some trips with 4-8-4 4443, 4-6-2 2475, and 1744 and 4460 which was the final engine to operate on SP mainline trackage. This engine is now at the Museum of Transport in St. Louis.
We have included all the dates of these trips and as much info on the excursions and engines as possible. This is a really fine show of steam that does the Southern Pacific proud. The collection comes from Ken Shattock and a variety of photographers, including his grandfather Victor Shattock. Maps help guide you along the various routes. We know you will enjoy this one very much with its great variety and solid documentation of the trips that once operated over the former SP rails.
