Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

The 1991 NRHS convention at Huntington, West Virginia is known for its big steam show. Here's the best of the big steam. First we see N&W 2-6-6-4 #1218 runs Kenova to Portsmouth. Then it's PM 2-8-4 #1225 and NKP 2-8-4 #765 running side-by-side on double track from Huntington to St. Albans - and back. The next day it's a doubleheader, from Huntington to Hinton on the "New River" train.

There's a lot of main line action! As a bonus, we see former C&O 2-8-4 #2716 running from Alexandria to Charlottesville in 1982, with a ride in the cab. Color, Stereo Sound. No narration.

Besides the Main line Motion pictures version of the 1218/765/1225 specials between 25-30 years earlier, Greg Scholl Video Productions, Mark 1, pentrex, Goodheart Productions and Berkshire Productions, were also there to capture their own footages of one of the most Big American Steam Railroading Events of 1991. Of course you can�t go wrong with the Lima Ohio Built Berkshire Doubleheader on a Freight From their birthplace to The convention where one night there is a lightning storm, and also through the new river gorge. The 1991 NRHS convention was also one of the final trips for 1218 Due to maintenance costs, and after the 25th anniversary of the NS Steam Excursion Program the following November of that same year, 1218 had since been put back on display at the VMT in Roanoke.
