1225 Winter Steam DVD5 of 5 (1)
Owosso Michigan is the home of Pere Marquette 2-8-4 number 1225. In February 2008 we see 1225 doing a little switching in preparation for the weekend of photo freight action. There is snow on the ground as we enjoy 2 days of action with a freight that appears like the 1950's. Along the way we see a variety of different types of locations and start-ups. This is big steam railroading in the winter-time, a rare treat indeed.
