This program also introduces Mark I Video's exclusive ChoochCam(tm) locomotive-mounted minicams which add a completely new dimension to railroad video programs. You won't believe your eyes as the 844 roars down the mainline, as viewed from a minicam mounted directly behind the huge drivers.

In the mark 1 video version of the recently turned 30 year old event, there are not only a great variety of journeys to the convention, during the convention & heading back after it was over, but also some vintage films. Aside from the Mark 1 video angles, there are also some noteworthy producers there as well: pentrex, Greg Scholl, main line motion pictures & Dave Goodheart productions. One of the highlights shows some pacing with 1522 to newburg on Saturday June 16. During the Monday June 18, 1990 doubleheader from St. Louis to kirkwood, there are some miniature go pro cameras on 844 & 1522. Finally the program comes to a close with a cab ride on 844 with engineer Steve Lee after dropping 1522 off at the national museum of transportation in Kirkwood. Overall, Tom Moran does an incredible job narrating this program.
