After a 35 year gap since living in California in the early 1960’s, British film maker John McIvor returned to the US in 1997 for the first of several trips ‘across the pond’, concentrating on steam railroading. Whilst not claiming to be a complete survey of American steam, this programme nevertheless covers a wide variety of locomotives filmed during the subsequent twenty years.

The vast majority of footage includes action sequences and locomotive cab visits. Some restoration projects are covered such as the C&O #1309 on the Western Maryland, the Reading #2100 in Cleveland and the Santa Fe #2926 in Albuquerque. Finally a few of the most famous locomotives on static display complete the list.

Over the 20 years of filming, a variety of photographic equipment has been used from Hi8, digital video, full high definition and even miniature GoPro camcorders. Where required, earlier 4:3 original footage has been remastered to widescreen 16:9 format video.
