Review of Steam Locomotive Restoration DVD

Join the participants of the 1992 Convention of the National Railway Historical Society held at San Jose, California, in July 1992 for a fascinating discussion of steam locomotive restoration into the 21st Century. The distinguished panel of steam excursion operators discussed a wide variety of subjects, including safety, restoring and operating locomotives, passenger car restoration, excursion management and many others. This informative and frequently humorous program offers rare insights into the highly interesting world of modern steam operations.
