Steam Memories Of Ontario DVD
Steam Memories Of Ontario
This video has nearly an hour of great steam action on CN and CP during the steam era. There is just about every class of engine imaginable that was running near the end of the steam era.
First we see Canadian National power including smaller engines, then moving all the way through the other medium size engines to the larger 2-8-2's, 4-8-2's, and 4-8-4's. In addition to these we also see the 4-6-4 Hudsons which had a distinctive tender. There were only a few of these racehorse engines built. In the 4-8-2 and 4-8-4's you will see the regular ones as well as the shrouded(streamlined)ones. These would be the 6060 series 4-8-2's and the 6400 series 4-8-4's. Its quite a nice variety with good action scenes of most all the classes
Next we see CPR engines with smaller ones and work our way through 4-6-0's, 2-8-0's, 2-8-2's, 4-6-2's, and 4-6-4 Hudsons. As I recall there is even one 4-4-4 Jubilee. There are a variety of the 4-6-2 pacifics, including the G3 types and G5's, and several of the early Hudsons, and of course the Royal Hudsons. Here again we get to see a great variety of steam including some doubleheaders, and are entertained by some of the accounts on certain runs by some of the men who were there.
This is all from good clean original 16mm color film, and well transferred to video. No steam sounds were ever recorded on these, as was the case with 95% of old train films. The producers did a great job with some background music and letting the folks narrate with their interesting background information.
This show goes well with our regular stock of vintage Canadian shows since we had very little from eastern Canada. This one is highly recommended as are all the vintage Canadian Shows we have available.
