Union Pacific Challenger 3985 filmed in 1992
Union Pacific Challenger 3985 filmed in 1992 if you recall it weighed enough that the crossing gates in Osgood would not go back up for a day till they were fixed. The late Mike Robins had it on radar at 80 MPH at the Pierceville crossing. The train came east of the Mississippi to ommemorate the Santa Claus Train on the Clinchfield Railroad in Virginia. That was me saying wow! in the movie. This youtube video was made from a very poor VHS tape, sorry the quality is not better. Click the link below to see the video.
