Atlanta Steam Celebration DVD Train Video
Click to enlargeNote: Cover image may differ from actual product
The haunting sounds of steam locomotives echoed once again through the Deep South when the National Railway Historical Society held its 1994 National Convention in Atlanta, Georgia. Enthusiasts rode excursion trains pulled by the Frisco 1522 and the N&W 611, or cheered trackside as these two powerful steam locomotives thundered by. Pentrex was on the spot as official videographer to record all of the convention's exciting events for your enjoyment.

This is one of the better Pentrex videos that I've seen. There is a lot of action featured, with both Frisco #1522 and N&W #611 getting their share of screen time. There is just enough of the other convention activities covered to break things up a bit and provide a very nice overview of the entire event.

I found the first-time double-header involving a 'Northern' and a 'Mountain' a reminding flashback to most railfans who've liked it as they had when they were children long ago.

Almost 25 years into the new decade, this was the final NRHS Convention for the Original NS Steam Program. It's also a sequel to the Frisco 1522 Peach Blossom Special Video. Unfortunately, this one didn't have any chapter menus whatsoever. You'll have to watch the program just like when it debut on VHS back when it first arrived.

this is one video I really enjoyed the reason why I bought this was that I never knew that the famed Norfolk & western 611 double headed with the Frisco 1522 the two engines are the stars of the 1994 nrhs convention in Atlanta Georgia in the summer of 94 the two engines run from Birmingham Alabama to Atlanta Georgia and getting there chance to shine with the crowds a visit to the Norfolk southern McDonough training center riding a train and the new Georgia railroad making it's last run before they ended operations that year and a banquet the show than finishes off with other double header with the 1522 and the 611 from Atlanta to Chattanooga Tennessee to finish the convention I would defiantly say to me this was the last great thing for the original Norfolk southern steam program before they had to end it due to rising insurance it's a shame we can't have a repeat like this again
