Product Information

This DVD features the rare and original 1950s films of Mr. William Altheimer. Professionally and expertly converted to digital video, the films have outstanding clarity and color.

After the introduction, the following 24 minutes showcase 13 different Big Boys, including No. 4014 in regular freight service. Next, both early and late 4-6-6-4 Challengers are seen in action. The film continues with the 4-8-4 800s, FEF-1, FEF-2 and FEF-3 hauling both freight and passenger trains. The now famous FEF-3, #844 is shown hauling a mail train over Sherman Hill, prior to becoming "the ambassador of steam". The final 2 chapters cover the Turbines and a variety of UP First Generation Diesels. Audio is matched to the action and appropriate narration and music complement the presentation.
