2317 AND STEAMTOWN'S CPR PACIFICS

Canadian Pacific heavy 4-6-2 2317 is one of the star performers at the Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Constructed by the Montreal Locomotive Works in 1923, this handsome engine pulled mainline freight and passenger trains across Canada until her retirement in 1959. Purchased by preservationist F. Nelson Blount in 1965, the big Pacific was rebuilt and returned to service in 1978 at Steamtown's previous location in Bellows Falls, Vermont. Due to her large size, the 2317 could not haul excursion trains over the Vermont Railway, but when Steamtown moved to Scranton, the big Pacific finally had a magnificent piece of railroad where she could really strut her stuff!

This fine program traces the fascinating history of the various classes of Canadian Pacific 4-6-2s, with the emphasis on the 2317 and her G-5 class cousins. Through full-color archive film, you'll see these colorful locomotives in regular service, along with other CP classes like the famous 4-4-4 Jubilees and 4-6-4 Royal Hudsons. The six surviving GSs are shown in fantrip service, along with the 2317's Vermont debut. The highlight of the program is a complete trip from Scranton to Moscow behind the 2317, illustrated with beautiful lineside sequences, dramatic in-cab scenes, and our famous ChoochCam locomotive-mounted minicams. The stack talk is superb and the sights and sounds of this proud Pacific blasting down the old Lackawanna main line are truly memorable!
