    4501 25th Anniversary

    Former Southern Railway 2-8-2 number 4501 is the star of this program as we begin with historic film footage of 4501 as engine 12 on the Kentucky and Tennessee Railroad in the early 1960s. Then we see 4501 in early Southern Steam Excursion service along with a few other Southern engines. The majority of the program was shot in 1991 and includes a short freight run from Salisbury, North Carolina to Asheville including scenes at the Loops on the Old Fort line. Then we follow the train to Knoxville, which includes a cab ride from Newport, Tennessee to Knoxville. Other trips include some coverage of the return trip of an excursion from Oneida to Chattanooga and some scenes of a southbound portion of a Cincinnati to Lexington run. The 25th Anniversary part of the title stems from the 25th Anniversary of the Southern and Norfolk Southern Steam Excursion program which took place in Chattanooga in October / November, 1991. We enjoy a 4501 trip west from Chattanooga, then the capper is the tripleheader as 4501 leads 611 and 1218 on a run. Later they all split and we get a few more shots of 4501 on a passenger train. This was interesting as about 3 years later the NS steam program was disbanded, and this was one of the last runs of 1218 since it went in the shop that winter, and never ran again. 4501 is privately owned and may operate again in the future. This tape has something for all steam fans to enjoy.
