Editorial Reviews

For Flash and Youtube previews see livingsteam.com. Living Steam DVD features the Virginia and Truckee Railroad steam locomotive #22, the Inyo at Carson City, Nevada. This video focuses equally on trains, people and history. Originally shot in HD, this letterbox video shows the crew at the Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City as they work to get the Inyo ready for a special weekend. Also featured are historical segments with narration showing photos and documents from 1870 to 1950. You will learn the history of the Virginia and Truckee and why it ended on May 31, 1950. After the #22 Inyo is ready you'll see it operate alongside the #8. On this day in October, 2007, the Inyo pulls the V&T #4 passenger coach, while the #8 train consist is the #57 wrecking car, the #10 passenger coach, and the V&T #24 caboose repainted as the Nevada Copper Belt #3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Living Steam is a good title May 30, 2013
Verified Purchase
This program really surprised me, and I am delighted to have it. Imagine an 1875 V&T locomotive actually under steam and running and with vintage V&T rolling stock to boot. More than just running, this program is both a history lesson and a primer on 1875 locomotive technology and operation. Very interesting and informative in that it goes in to some of the nuts and bolts of preparing the locomotive for operation, as well as return to display status-but not in a heavy or overpowering way. It is a pity that the INYO is only under steam twice a year (so the program states). It is perhaps a miracle that the locomotives and rollling stock shown and operated even exist. Thank the movie studios for that and thoughtful people who saw to its' preservation and restoration to operation. A MUST HAVE for any steam fan!
