More Cool Videos of UP's Valley Eagle Heritage Tour Train

Here are a couple of good videos of UP No. 844 pulling the Union Pacific’s Valley Eagle Heritage Tour train captured by a railfan as she went through Kansas.  This first one is another pacing video where the car and cameraman are driving alongside the train and filming the locomotive.  This one has some good tight shots of No. 844’s driving wheels in action and was filmed on a dirt road even:

This video is a stationary shot of the train going by a grade crossing near Hayden, Kansas.  In it you can get a complete view of the entire train as she rolls by:
