This is several very short videos of the 1932 Bucyrus-Erie 50-B operating on September 7, 2013, at the Roots of Motive Power Annual Steam Festival in Willits, CA. This is one of only two of this model, used among other things to build the Panama Canal, that are currently operational in the world. Video shot by Ree Slocum; sequence edited by Dirk Johnson.
