St. Louis, Missouri, was the site of the National Railway Historical Society’s 1990 Convention. Three of the nation’s largest steam locomotives attending the convention traveled three different routes in a spectacular display of mainline steam action.

Pentrex crews covered the movement of the Norfolk & Western 1218, the Union Pacific 844 and the Cotton Belt 819. The trips covered over 9 states and thousands of miles. The 1218 traveled from Columbus, Ohio, through Louisville, Kentucky, on into St. Louis. The 844 started from Cheyenne, Wyoming, pulling freight to Kansas City, Missouri. From Arkansas came the 819 departing Little Rock with its special passenger excursion.

This program provides the most complete coverage available of these mighty locomotives on their way to St. Louis.

    I was born and grew up in the state of Missouri and St. Louis 1990 excursion is one of my favorites. The only shame is that there are no chapters menus on it. But overall was exciting. Pentrex was not the only crewmen however. Mark 1 Video, Greg Scholl, and Diverging Clear productions were also on hand for the historic moment. This video shows before and after the excursion runs as St. Louis Southwestern (Cotton Belt) 819, Union Pacific 844 and Norfolk & Western 1218 traveled to St. Louis, Missouri for the 1990 NRHS convention.
