Review of Ohio Steam Spectacular - Greg Scholl Video Productions

If you enjoy great looking steam action, and hard-working steam sounds, this is the tape for you. In 2002, the Ohio Central Railroad, renowned for its restoration of steam engines, sponsored some photo specials that were the first for former Grand Trunk Railway 4-8-4 #6325. In June, the big 4-8-4 sported the Grand Trunk front Number Plates, and authentic logo on the tender sides, for the first time in over 40 years. This immaculately restored(by the Ohio Central steam crews), has been a hit with steam fans in the United states since its first trips in the fall of 2001(See our "6325 Return to Steam" video for more on 6325).

The June photo special featured 6325 on a matched set of passenger coaches operating east of Dennison, Ohio on the former Pennsylvania Panhandle line. There were many runbys as 6325 put on a grand show of steam and sound for the limited number of photographers who rode the special. This was the first photo special for the 6325.
