Editorial Reviews

FEEL THE POWER of the largest operating steam locomotive in the world, the Union Pacific 4-6-6-4 Challenger #3985 as it pounds away the miles between Wyoming and California pulling an excursion train for a national railroad convention. Among the many locomotive and train sounds are spectacular pass-by recordings, three in-the-cab perspectives and an "audio tour" of some of the operating features. 27 tracks of pure steam power!

operational sounds over all,... lacks variety , It's ok.but prefer the others over all as this one renders the sounds from a distance more often than on the spot, I rate it just "O K"
