024 Steam & Diesel on the B&O Vol. 2

024 Steam & Diesel on the B&O Vol. 2

59 minutes

From 16mm film by Donald J. Krofta.

Continuing with Donald J. Krofta's Steam & Diesel on the B&O, this second volume has more of his classic 1950's footage of B&O steam in the 1950's plus colorful diesel footage as B&O turned into the Chessie System in the 1970's and the Chessie Steam Special as it visited northern Ohio in 1977. Along the way, you'll get a touch of Erie-Lackawanna, Conrail, and one scene of Amtrak's Cardinal.

The 1950's steam action takes place at Deshler, Attica Junction, Willard, South Lima, Lorain, Warwick and other places in northern Ohio. You'll find 4-8-2's, 2-8-2's, 2-10-2's, 0-8-0's and the big EM1 class 2-8-8-4's.

Diesels are in the same general area and the Chessie Steam Special was filmed as it ran from Fostoria to Toledo with a service stop at Walbridge. The engine was ex-Reading 2101.

Real B&O steam sound recorded by Jim Hawk brings the steam scenes to life. The diesel sequences also have sound. Maps are included of most photo locations. Running time is 59 minutes plus previews of many other shows using Don Krofta's 16mm film are included at the end.

Total program length with previews is 69 minutes.

Narrated by Danny Harmon.
