Featuring ICRR steam 1950's-1960 plus ex-NKP 2-8-4 765 on P&L in 1992.
A two part program, this DVD has Illinois Central steam power running in the 1950's in Illinois and Kentucky as steam was winding down. You'll visit the Paducah area and other locations on the Kentucky Division where 2-10-2's and 2-8-2's were the main freight power. Also included are some 2500 class 4-8-2's and 4-8-2 2613 on excursions in 1960 with footage not in our previous IC program. Some of the footage has live sound recorded on the film with the rest augmented by actual IC steam audio. You'll see how the Paducah shop was so important to the IC's steam operations and you'll see how those same shops cut up many of the steam engines.
Then, you'll return to Paducah in 1992 when ex-Nickel Plate Berkshire 765 ran a pair of excursions to Central City with dramatic footage as the engine runs across Kentucky Dam and Barkley Dam and many other locations.
Plus, we've added a bonus slide show of IC steam at Louisville and Paducah.
A preview of Mid-American Glory ICRR (item 018-D) is also included at the end of the DVD.
All together, it's a 75 minute program narrated by Danny Harmon, 95% color.
