Follow steam locomotive Frisco 1522 on an historic journey through Texas as she pulls Burlington Northern Santa Fe's Employee Appreciation Special.

Starting in Ft. Worth, the train headed south through Temple and on to Houston and Silsbee - a whole new territory for this powerful 4-8-2 Mountain-type locomotive.

The 1522 got a good workout, producing intense bursts of stack talk while lugging 16 gleaming passenger cars through the Texas Hills.

She performed flawlessly, highballing over former Santa Fe track at incredible speeds.

You'll follow the 1522 on her travels for a total of 8 days, spotting railroad icons such as Tower 55, Tower 17, T&NO Junction, and more.

On the run out to Silsbee and back the Special traversed the former Southern Pacific Sunset Route between Houston and Beaumont.

The train passed small towns and rolled through beautiful, rural landscapes. Crossing rivers, stomping up hills, and sprinting across the countryside, the locomotive was a sight to behold.

Join us trackside for a fantastic show of steam railroading as the 1522 conquers the Lone Star State!

Two stereo soundtracks, one with the natural train sounds, the other with narration added. The viewer can switch the narration on or off at any time.
