Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

This exciting program presents the most complete coverage available of the 1992 Annual Convention of the National Railway Historical Society, held at San Jose, California in July 1992.

Three mainline steam locomotives were featured: Union Pacific Challenger 4-6-6-4 3985, Southern Pacific Daylight 4-8-4 4449, and Southern Pacific 4-6-2 2472.

All convention excursions are covered, and in addition, there's great coverage of the Challenger pulling the Pacific Limited ferry excursion through the scenic Feather River Canyon and the Daylight heading its colorful consist between Klamath Falls and San Jose. You'll also view steam shortline and San Jose trolley activities, plus the night photo session and a surprise appearance by Northern Pacific 4-8-4 2668.

Seventeen camera crews were deployed to provide outstanding trackside, cab, pacing and on train sequences at many scenic locations. Our famous, locomotive mounted minicams (ChoochCams) were also mounted on all three locomotives to provide even more unusual views of the action!

In the mark 1 video version of the 1992 NRHS convention, which is the longest program they ever produced, features a great variety of steam, trolley cars, & even unusual surprises. One highlight shows a doubleheader with 2472 & 4449 operating alongside the pacific coast with some go-pro footage from the top of 2472�s tender looking up front at 4449. Asides from the mark 1 video footage themselves, other producers like pentrex, Valhalla, video rails, Dave Goodheart, & mainline motion pictures were also there for this nearly 30 year old event. During the Martinez trip over altamont pass, 3985 gets stranded on a turntable that wouldn�t handle the heavy weight so that a construction machine would be used to help out with the situation. In Portland, SP&S 700 is also shown as it was disguised as Northern pacific 2686.
