Due to bandwidth constraints, only members of our affordably priced RVElite subscription service may view ultra high quality videos.
Ultra high quality videos are encoded at a higher video resolution (640x480, the size of this light gray box), are sampled at bitrates of 4000+k/sec, have no compression added, and may be viewed by our valued RVElite members in full-screen mode.
Remarks: Powered by #110, the world's smallest operating articulated locomotive, this video depicts the regular summer excursion train operated by the Black Hills Central Railroad between Hill City and Keystone, SD. While most of the trains are powered by the 2-6-6-2, the first train in the morning draws GP7 #63. Marketed at the "1880 Train", various locations along the railroad's 10-mile-long line are shown here including the 6% grade out of Hill City that slows the train to a crawl.
These clips will be featured in an upcoming episode of the TV series Trackside. Go to www.trainweb.org/tracksideonline for more information.
