    This 2005 video shows some samples of engines including some flashback segments which some are no longer operational as of today. First comes the Cumbres & Toltec with 487 heading from Chama to Osier to meet with 484, then comes a 1999 flashback to the Indiana State Fair Train since Nickel Plate 587 last operated in 2002, and today just 15 years later, it is still in pieces. Heading south we head to the tennessee valley museum to see former US Army 610 in operation as today the engine is on display since Southern 630 & 4501 tookover the operations. Back west we’re at the Durango & Silverton to see the Eureka on a special run from Durango to Rockwood Steam engines 480-482 are also shown as well. Back east again we’re at the now gone Ohio Central Railroad as we’ll ride the cab of Canadian Pacific 1293, and finally comes a short segment of Greg Scholl’s Memories of N&W 611 on the run from Cincinatti to Columbus via Portsmouth on September 21, 1994. Today since the fire up campaign, and the new NS Manager who loves steam, the program is back and 611 is still operational since what happened 2 years ago today. Overall, good Footage From Les Jarrett as well as his own Narration, plus some special thanks to John Craft for the Tennessee Valley Segment, and Best Friend Greg Scholl for the 1994 footage of 611.
