Union Pacific Big Boys


Union Pacific Big Boys
Experience the thunder of the largest heaviest steam locomotives ever built. Experience the Union Pacific Big Boys - the 4-8-8-4s exclusively from Video Rails.

This masterfully crafted video documentary was produced from rare 16mm color films professionally shot on the 1940s and 1950s by cinematographers Stan Kistler, William Kratville, J. Allen Hawkins, Bill Warrick, and Perry Becker. You'll experience the original thunder of these giant steam locomotives in brilliantly recorded Hi-Fi Stereo.

Don't miss the incredible story of these colossal engines. A magnificent moment of railroad history.
