HD- Santa Fe 3751: The Chase, The Steam, The Legend: April 16-17, 2011


This past weekend, I had the opportunity to see, chase, and tour the 1927 Steam engine that is AT&SF 4-8-4 #3751. In this video you will see the departure from Union Station in Los Angeles, a pace of the train down the I-10 freeway, a few roll-bys in El Monte and Upland, a few shots in San Bernardino (where it was displayed for the Railroad Days), and the return trip through Upland. This was my first time seeing the Loco in action, and I had a BLAST! I’d like to thank everyone who I met or hung out with this past weekend, and I hope you will enjoy my video!

6233 Duchess of Sutherland “Cuneo Centennial” 28 April 2007


The Cuneo Centennial, a return trip from Waterloo to Yeovil Junction to mark Terence Cuneo’s 100th birth year. First seen passing Vauxhall then arriving at Woking where I joined the train. At Winchfield the engine took water. On arrival at Salisbury the Duchess had to come off because of gauging problems at Sherborne. We were taken to Yeovil and back by a 57. At the Yeovil railway centre there was an exhibition of Cuneo paintings and I had the honour of meeting Carole Cuneo (his daughter). The train is then seen preparing to depart Salisbury on the return journey and powering away from Woking. Also on board was Alan Pegler, once owner of the Flying Scotsman.
