Pere Marquette 1225 is celebrating 75 years of Railroading History. Ride along on the front of Pere Marquette 1225 as the train departs the Historical Howell Depot. The train traveled north from the Howell Melon Festival (Howell, MI) in route to Cohoctah, MI. The 360-Degree Camera allows the viewer to control the camera’s pan and tilt for a unique and interactive experience. The video has also been remixed for immersive 5.1 Surround Sound Audio.

The duration of this video is longer than my traditional videos. The list below provides timestamps for highlights along the route.
