Our two-DVDprogram chronicles eight railroad trips which were part of the National Railway Historical Society (NRHS) 2012 Annual Convention held in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Participants rode behind three different coal-fired steam locomotives on mainline and museum trips, many different diesel locomotives on mainline excursions, and in electric-powered traction cars at two museums. Our program presents all eight days of Iowa Rail Excursions in chronological order, each with its own chapter.

This is an historic record that goes beyond a souvenir of the the NRHS Convention. 137 Minutes on two DVDs - You will want this in your collection!
