Nickel Plate 765 and Pere Marquette 1225 together for the first time since the 80's on a Lerro Productions photo freight. Day 1 was the 765 alone, day 2 was both engines. Purely mindless runby's, but hear them bark! Lots of sound and fury, massive smoke plumes and some awesome stack talk. Includes side by side run-by's.

This DVD is a very good look at a rare occurrence - two double-heading 2-8-4's on a photo freight train in Michigan. The option exists to turn off the narration (which I use every time) so that you can hear only the locomotives in operation, and not have to worry about anything interrupting the sound.

One minor point of contention - there are a couple of scenes where the audio practically cuts out during runbys, like there was a malfunction with the audio on the camera itself.

Otherwise, you get a lot of great action - there are some scenes in the beginning with only Nickel Plate Road #765 pulling the photo freight - but most of the shots are of both #765 and Pere Marquette #1225 leading the charge on the route from Owosso, MI towards Alma. This is definitely a good DVD to pick up!

In late August of 2009, after a month's sucess of TrainFestival 2009, the 2 lima built berkshires put on some special performances in the flat farmlands of michigan. For some reason, the side by side runby clip was shown in the Marshall Publishing's own video: Lots & Lots of big trains, with nearly 10 million Views!!! And not only that but its also for the first time in 18 years that the dynamic duo themselves put on some special runbys as a pair that would never be repeated again.
