This is the B&O as the last of her mainline steam was being run, as they awaited replacement by diesel. The big steam engines don’t know their fate and look as strong and proud as they always have.

This is the B&O’s western lines with film shot in Fostoria, Willard, Deshler, Attica, K Tower, Galatea, Sterling, at the Warwick four track coaling tower, Toledo and Stanley Yard. We’ll see different classes and wheel arrangements: 2-10-2, 4-82, 2-8-2, 4-6-2 even a 2-8-8-4. We also get footage of the 1957 Illini Railroad Club’s Chicago to Willard excursion being #5555.

These are rare railfan films and presented here for the thrill, joy and history of seeing steam engines as they used to run. 8mm color and B&W film, silent with music. No narration/sound.

    As a long-time follower of the B&O I was excited to see this new (to me) DVD. It has the potential of being a great record of the last steam days on the B&O but fails in that the majority is just black silhouettes. I know it’s old 8mm stuff but I’ve seen a lot of that better copied and edited to where you could see what was going on. The parts that were clear and clean were most interesting. Seeing the E-units and passenger trains was a trip down memory lane for me. Lots of T-3, T-4, S-1a and Q footage. Only a true Beano fan will appreciate this DVD.
