This preview is for Volume 2 of our 3-part DVD series, "Steamin’ Summer". The "Steamin’ Summer" DVDs present incredible steam action during the great Midwest heatwave of 2011. Volume 2 begins with a two-day trip across Iowa with double-headed QJs. The locomotives are headed to the Train Festival at Rock Island, IL. The first day they pull passenger equipment and the second day a 55-car freight train!
We also cover the ferry move of NKP #765 as it travels west to Rock Island across Indiana in the second chapter. Read more about 765's trip here: yardgoatimages.com/trip-report-tank-engines-nkp-765-travel-to-the-rock-island-train-festival
Our third chapter takes us to the Silver Creek & Stephenson Railroad in Freeport, Illinois, which scheduled a photo special in between the Little River and Rock Island events. We are happy to bring you steam and diesel action from this wonderful museum. Read more about this event here: yardgoatimages.com/trip-report-silver-creek-stephenson-railroad
The final chapter covers Day 1 and 2 of the Train Festival. Our cameras cover multiple trips to Walcott, Iowa and a day-long trip with #765 to Bureau Junction, Illinois. More about the Rock Island Train Festival here: yardgoatimages.com/trip-report-rock-island-train-festival
