Part TWO. 1225 stalls on Fox Hill…….WHY? Oct. 21, 1990


Ok 1225 fans, back on Oct. 21, 1990, the 1225 was returning east from Grand Rapids with 20 or so freight cars and could not make it up Fox Hill. I was told by one of the crew why. Do you know? Hopefully your more polite than that A-hole in blue with the coffee cup. He could not stand seeing that CP pass his beloved steam engine. He also went along and picked up the pennys off the rail from the little kids in front of the 1225! Anyone know who this is? I will remember that forever…..

Owosso – 1225 Steam Engine Train – North Chipman Street Crossing


One of the jewels of the Owosso, Michigan-based Steam Railroading Institute: the 1225 steam engine locomotive and tender – weighing in at 800000 pounds – more than the maximum takeoff weights of one B-52 bomber and eight F-16 fighters combined. In this video, you are initially looking southeast. The smoke from the 1225 can first be seen as the train weaves its way into the Westown district of Owosso. As the train turns the corner and heads northwest towards you, it is entering what were yards of the New York Central Railroad. To the left was a freight warehouse and station, and to the right was the massive Owosso Manufacturing Company that later became the Mitchell-Bentley Corporation. As recently as the mid-1950’s, the freight yards were full of switches, sidings, rolling stock and both diesel and steam engines. It was at this site in Owosso, the hometown of Thomas E. Dewey, that John F. Kennedy gave one of his memorable, and at times humor-tinged, speeches during the 1960 presidential campaign. Today the old Mitchell-Bentley building and headquarters are long gone; new facilities were built across the street. The freight station, warehouse, switches and sidings have also been removed leaving just one basically north-south track. However, business is booming again. The single track is now owned by the Great Lakes Central Railroad, which is headquartered on the other side of Owosso in facilities that were previously regional maintenence yards of the Ann Arbor Railroad

Owosso – Track Speed – 1225 Steam Engine Train – December 20 – West King Street Crossing


Owosso, Michigan, is rich in history and historic figures, while also being a leader in innovation and high technologies. A video done almost anywhere in Owosso seems to automatically exemplify this synergy of a great past and dynamic progression into the future. There are over twenty-five railroad crossings within the city limits of Owosso, Michigan, each of which is located in the southern or western areas of the city. This video was shot at the innermost of two West King Street crossings. As the video begins, you will see a tall brown brick building in the distant background. This is the remains of the massive Owosso Sugar Company, which was built in 1903, and which had one of the highest production capacities of all sugar companies in the US It was here where the renowned scientist and inventor, Yasujuro Nikaido, worked as chief chemist, and it was in Owosso where he wrote the book, “Beet-Sugar Making and Its Chemical Control” – a book that has remained a classic in its field since 1909. This largest building of the company, and others on the property, later housed Mid-West Abrasives – a manufacturer of abrasive products including sand papers, WR Fox, Inc. – a designer and builder of convention hall trade show displays, Genesee Stamping – a manufacturer of metal stamped products, as well as other companies. The modern buildings in the foreground are the global headquarters of the rapidly growing Internet accountability company, Covenant Eyes. About two blocks west of
