ECO Works Midwest Steam 1225 from 1991 uploaded

Unread post by Steamlogger »

I uploaded the first clips from my 1991 video Midwest Steam. The uploaded segment follows Pere Marquette 1225 from Howell to Grand Rapids.
We see 1225 traverse the diamond at Trowbridge (East Lansing) with cars on the now gone interchange track. Not shown is the train stopping for servicing. After dark we see 1225 at a couple places near Grand Rapids. Then turning the locomotive and tool car on the Wealthy Street Wye with crew walking alongside on the sharp curves. This upload concludes with morning shots of 1225 parked in the old passenger station tracks at Wyoming yard with Amtrak P373 the Sunday train.

Thanks so much for uploading this. My copy of the VHS has long been lost, haven’t seen this footage in close to 20 years. Used to watch it a ton as a kid!

Just watched, my grandpa is a fan of older videos of rail action in the US and I’m definitely gonna show him this. Even your newer videos are great! You've earned yourself a new subscriber!
