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.

The February 2019 charter featured a matched set of passenger cars for 1225, but there was no snow. Still it was cold and the passenger consist gives us different looks than the freight train that was 11 years earlier. There were several runbys that featured motor vehicles near crossings or grain elevators. There is even a nice night scene with 1225 passing the elevator at Carland, Michigan. The engine and trains look good and sound good making this a great show with rare winter action. Live audio. 77 Minutes plus bonus and previews.

1225 winter steam follows former Pere Marquette Berkshire no.1225 out of Owosso Michigan on two different charter trains operated by the Steam Railroading Institute the first segment looks at the 1225 on a 2 day photo fright train in February 2008 which would operate on the former anne arber and new york central mainlines the 1225 puts on a show of power with snow on the ground making it a wonderful backdrop for the train the second part of the video jumps to 11 years latter with the 1225 on a photo passenger train which also would take place in february 2019 unlike the 2008 charter there was no snow for the 2019 charter but never the less the beautiful Berkshire provided lots of great moments there's also bonus footage from both the charters to finish the program this is quite a treat watching this beautiful locomotive working in the winter time with lots snow and steam making a wonderful scene for winter time this is an exciting video that is sure to be enjoy seeing the 1225 provide lots of great action and a lovely scene for the winter season
