Product Details

A Great Gathering of steam locomotives, vintage aircraft, and classic road vehicles took place in and around Owosso, Michigan in June, 2014. This huge event, called Train Expo 2014, was organized by the non-profit Steam Railroading Institute. SRI is located in Owosso on the site of the former Ann Arbor Railroad’s steam shops and roundhouse. It's most prized possesion is 2-8-2 Pere Marquette 1225.

Our DVD program provides a front-row seat as we follow 1225 and the seven visiting steam locomotives (Nickel Plate 765, Flagg Coal Company 75, Lehigh Valley Coal Company 126, Little River 1, Little River 110, Viscose Company 6, and Leviathan 63) pulling dozens of trains. Our team of videographers captured the steam trips as well as loving closeups of the locomotives on display and while moving around the SRI site.

We also deliver some highlights of the road vehicles displayed at the Baker College Auto/Diesel Institute campus, and include extensive coverage at Owosso Community Airport, which featured a P-51 Mustang, a B-17, a B-25, a C-47, biplanes, the Misty Blues All Woman Skydiving Team, plus additional vintage and private aircraft.

Thanks to the Steam Railroading Institute for organizing these historic opportunities to see vintage trains, planes and automobiles. Add The Great Gathering at Owosso to your video library!
