1218_DVD.jpg

 

The most powerful operating steam locomotive in the world travels to Florida.

This part of the country never saw an articulated steamer, until the North Florida Chapter of the National Railroad Historical Society (NRHS) brought her to Florida.

Run by the Norfolk Southern, and sponsored by the NRHS, this incredible trip from the cab, Trackside and from the train!  Awesome pacing shots with a gyroscopic lens, run-bys which will send chills up your spine, and sound that will blow you out of your listening seat! Don't miss out on one of the most entertaining and fastest paced videos on 1218 yet!

1218 was retired in 1959 and sat next to Union Carbide in Charleston, West Virginia until 1964. Towed to a variety of museums for static display, she remained silent for 21 years. In 1985 Robert B. Claytor, then Chairman of Norfolk Southern helped bring her back to life.

The loco underwent a two year overhaul, and in the Spring of 1987, railroad man Robert Claytor was at the throttle as the 1218 began her new life in excursion service for the Steam Division of the Norfolk Southern.

Approx. Run Time 55 Minutes
Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo
