Pentrex with a two for one show. Steam to Huntington. Huntington Steam Celebration. Featured locomotives are: Pete Marquette 1225, Nickel Plate 765 and Norfolk and Western 1218. The two shows combine for 3 hours of entertainment.
National Railroad Historical Society event in 1991. Main celebration at Huntington, West Virginia. The first program shall be focused on the steam engines, as they travel to the gala.
Here are the high standards of Pentrex quality. Visuals, audio, script and editing are all razor sharp. Too much to get it all. Some highlights within…
David Drui is rock solid, with a smooth narrative on both shows. The choice of which program. No Chapter Menu.
Nice maps on both shows. Timely usage.
Plenty of on screen graphics with locations and dates. A lengthy preview section follows the program.
Steam to Huntington
Pere Marquette 1225 is the lead-off player. At Owasso, Michigan. This will be her maiden voyage outside of Michigan. A 1941 Lima built Berkshire.
The camera crews get many angles.
A tribute to the Lima Works at Lima, Ohio. The two engines sound their steam whistles as they pass their birthplace!
Included this shot is purely for kicks! Steam rules!!
The double-header continues onward.
A restored Nickel Plate caboose, on this train.
Cab ride aboard the Nickel Plate.
Norfolk and Western 1218 departs Cincinnati, Ohio. The behemoth, articulated is a striking contrast to the Berkshire types.
All the engines have fine pace sequences.
Huntington Steam Celebration
The N&W 1218 appears seperate. Reason being the trackage didn’t connect to the CSX.
Two days of excursions behind the lone 1218 are shown.
Oiling around is a necessary and time honored tradition of steam operation.
The 1218 is an awesome spectacle!
The tail car on the N&W consist.
NKP leads the PM on the double-header move. This is at Thurmond. A town that is frozen in time.
The 365 is highlighted with some pacing.
The main event is side by side running of these Berkshire class locos. Memorable!
The NKP 365 was pulling a string of empty CSX Hoppers and this Chessie System caboose.
Huntington Steam Combo. A great show, that features a trio of classic steam locomotives. Beautifully recorded in the visuals and audio. Some fitting scenic areas. Perfect for family fun. One of the top Pentrex modern steam releases.
