Former Grand Trunk Western railroad 4-8-4 number 6325 was rebuilt and first operated in 2001(See 6325 Return to Steam). In this video shot 2 years later we are on a photo freight special which operated out of Sugar Creek, Ohio on the Ohio Central Railroad. The day begins with morning runbys south and then north of Sugar Creek. The consist is kept pure, as the photographers rode in a special escort diesel train behind the steam special. We show a couple shots of it as well, since it had vintage FP9 power. After the runbys north of Sugar Creek we did some at the depot with orders being handed up to the crews with the order hoop. In the afternoon, we begin with a cab ride in the 6325 before seeing more runbys south of town as we head south. We then board the caboose and shoot some out of the cupola and later off the rear of the caboose as we speed southward to a new runby location. In the late afternoon sun we do several runpasts near Pearl in the fall colors of October in eastern Ohio. The 6325 put on a fine show with everything from start-up shots to fast runbys where we could pan the engine as it went by. Also recommended is Ohio Steam Spectacular for more of this engine. New release for 2010-11.
