A July, 2000 chase of 4449, with 4449 tucked in behind it! Taped between Gold Bar and Trinidad Loop we go from rain forest to desert, via the Columbia River. Power goes from BN green SD40's through War Bonnets and Oakway to Heritage 2 to a black SP steam engine. Wild! Pine trees and steep grades in the mountains, stunning scenery (I just sat and looked) in the Columbia River gorge, and Trinidad Loop, all in sunshine for a change. My first look at big steam, most impressive.
