Review of Akron Steel City Express DVD

Big steam returns to the route of B&O's "Capitol Limited'! Four memorable round trips in late August, 1993, attracted over 4,000 riders, and many more to watch and photograph.

In this one hour program, you will see the best trackside views, plus an inside look at the first class parlor, dome and pullman cars. And ride the cab! There is nothing like it at 60 per!

NKP #765 dressed to resemble C&O Kanawha #2765, is owned by the all-volunteer Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society. The "Pit" crew is seen at work in Akron and Pittsburgh. Another volunteer organization, The Orrville Railroad Heritage Society, with assistance from The Mahoning Valley Railroad Heritage Society, provided coach cars, crews, and sold tickets, among other tasks.

Quaker Square to Station Square - come aboard for a great trip,
