TrainTrackTrav : FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 1: Is the Metrolink diesel pushing the steam locomotive? No, the diesel is there to provide electrical power for the coaches, as well as dynamic braking. Listen at 7:55, that is the bark of a 1927 steam loco, not the rumble of a diesel. 2: Why is there no smoke? The fireman (the guy who makes the steam for the engineer to use) is firing the engine well. He is using as little fuel as possible, to make as much steam as possible. This means there is little smoke. 3: How much coal does it use? None. This locomotive was converted to burn atomized oil in 1936. 4: How fast is she going? About 55 or 60ish. This is no where near her top speed. 3751's highest recorded speed was set in 1941, when she hit 103mph. 5: How did you work the camera while driving? I didn't. My dad was driving while I was filming from the back seat.

mindlessgonzo : Strange to see an ol' 1920's steam engine next to Toyota Cruisers and 2010 model cars and SUVs. A nearly 100 year difference kind of strange.

15DudeAwesome : 4:40 My new wallpaper.

TSG Multimedia : This is awesome. The engine is working effortlessly.

Aryan Kishore : Today we might have bullet trains capable of doing 350 kmph but nothing can beat the elegance of this beast!

Mike Morris : Is it just me, or is the steam locomotive one of the coolest/ruthless piece of machinery man has come up with, put some horns on the front blowing the steam and you have a modern day nightmare to new kids lol. Amazing vid!

IronLordOmega : that big beauty chugging along nice

Rudy Cornejo : ok why am i looking for my Lionel train set in the attic at 3:00 a.m.

Fritz Colburn : I'm not a big train guy. But I just watched this beginning to end with the biggest grin on my face. Maybe I'm a bigger train guy than I thought.

3.6.9.K Ft Select Edits : Can you imagine if this BEAST was a Transformer.

Shane Singleton : What a big beautiful beast. I love diesels but There is just something about a big steam locomotive that just moves the soul. She moves pretty well for a piece of iron that's getting close to the 100 years old mark. I'm planning to take a short trip over to Frisco to see Big Boy 4018 possibly this weekend. I've never seen any of the big Alcos up close. I can't wait to see 4014 back in action. I'll have to try to get a seat on an excursion once she does.

sammy brasch : Just realized this looks like the train from polar express.

Paula Johnson : Why isn't beautiful 3751 brought to Oakland for something like excursions to the fabulous Sacramento railroad museum? Northern California never get to see her. As a pre-Amtrak child, I spent a lot of time on Santa Fe trains and loved them.

brownhornet1975 : Great video my man!!!! This is going in my archives of favorite videos!!

James Smith : How in the hell does that thing stay together with all those moving parts?

D D : Beautiful piece of engineering history!!

KingreX32 : its funny, in its prime, in its heyday this was probably just another train. But seeing one of these today is like a special event. Funny how things change with time. I wonder if modern locomotives will be looked at the same way in 100 years?

neomrdo_SnowSquatch : Wow! Straight in the center of the freeway. I've been in L.A. tons and still don't know where this section of track is. Metrolink sticks out like a sore thumb.

Linwizz : Is this fast enough to get back to the future?

kae4466 : the lner in the uk had a rule , that if u were firing and making black smoke , you were wasting coal. apperently also when firing with black smoke damaged the tubes . this would have been fun to watch.

Celso Lopes Silva : FANTASTIC , I LOVE 💗 EXCELENT VIDEO !!!

Gumball : aqui no Brasil maior parte dos governantes e empresa ferroviária desprezam o transportes ferroviário de passageiros , veja o exemplo milhares de vagões apodrecendo ao relento pelo pais a fora ,o governo não da mínima importância e a ALL terminou de sepultar trens,ferrovias e estações ,e ainda que posar de bom menino ,a ferrovia norte sul se arrasta desde 1987 , a trans nordestina vai terminar quando galinha nascer dentes kkkkkkk

Soul Cage : Beauty

D J : I loved the video my grandfather retired from Southern RR as a painter and my uncle retired from Southern RR as a blacksmith. Watching these monsters operate is easy to see how the RR brought progress to America.

Steven C : 10:50 just an ideal of how huge this loco really is.
