A Great Video of a Steam Double Header Photo Charter!

Click on the video below to watch it!
When the news front is quiet, we occasionally bring your attention to railway-railway related items of interest beyond our own southern Ontario region. Today, we bring you one the finest steam fan videos that we have seen as yet. This ten minute video seems to have been filmed recently even though it seem to be carefully staged to reflect operations of many decades ago. It is of a railfan trip but without a railfan in sight (remarkable!). The filming is absolutely first rate.
The subject are a pair of magnificent 2-8-4 Berkshire Class steam engines - Pere Marquette #1225 and Nickel Plate Road ## 765 - teaming up to pull a freight train for a historic photographic charter on the Great Lakes Central Railroad, an event organized by Lerro Productions and hosted by the Steam Railroading Institute of Owosso, Michigan.

If your computer is fairly new you may want to watch in High Definition. To do so (once it is playing), click on the "360" button on the bottom and then choose "720" for High Definition. To watch it in full screen, click on the "YouTube" symbol in the lower right of the image below and play it at YouTube with full screen turned on.
