    The program begins a montage of clips of the actual event. Of course throughout the event, 1225 is wearing a Norfolk and Western steamboat whistle. This program is a good look at these two steamers. A look at the route through Google maps is shown. Owosso is located 75 miles northwest of Detroit. Day 1 (Friday June 20) finds 765 operating the first half day special to Alma while 1225 operates the second. Note the rain blocking the lens in one scene. There is some freight action as well. Next there is a night photo session which was organized by Pete Lerro. Inside the roundhouse is Mississippian 76 still in pieces. Day 2 (Saturday June 21) shows 1225 to Alma once again, followed by 765 for the afternoon trip. A visit to the carnival is shown. Meanwhile Little River #110 operates hourly trips for day 3 (Sunday June 22) followed by a look at the visiting exhibitions and engines, with 765 arriving back at the depot. Finally 1225 heads to Alma with its own whistle. The main show is 52 minutes while the bonus Greenfield Village segment is 11 minutes.
