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.
