Trip to Owosso - 4, Steam

Hi, The main purpose of the trip was to photograph big steam engines (NKP #765 and PM #1225)  pulling excursion trains as part of the Steam Railroading Institute's rail fest.  I will present a montage of 2 1/2 days of photography first showing northbound photos in station order and then southbound, without regard to the date they were taken.  We were joined for most of this part of the trip by Jim Kleeman's brother Jay, a worthy addition.
