    This now over 30 year old video rails program features the very first trips of the short lived giant in Ohio Kentucky and also in Virginia. Surprisingly, noteworthy railroad video producer Greg Scholl was also there and his footages were shown during the 1987 NRHS convention with 611 and also with 1218 on the Cincinnati to Danville line on Sunday September 13, 1987. While this program was made by video rails in 1987, Greg’s version of the 1987 NRHS convention was shown 3 years later in 1990 for his Norfolk Southern Steam part 1 Video.
