    Hooters on Blue Ridge DVD


    TODAY, SOME FORTY YEARS AFTER their smoke plumes dissipated over Christiansburg Hill and their exhaust beats and hooter whistles reverberated into silence on the famous Blue Ridge grade, the mighty Norfolk & Western Y6-class 2-8-8-2s, A-class 2-6-6-4s, and J-class 4-8-4s roar back with a vengeance in an incredible 16mm color sound film computer-enhanced and expertly transferred into the dramatic video "Hooters on Blue Ridge". Like cracking open the vault to the Fort Knox of steam era color movies, GOODHEART PRODUCTIONS introduces the camera work of Henry Peterson, who made several trips to the N&W in the 1950s. He not only filmed Americaís last great steam show in 16mm, but he also recorded the action in synchronized sound, much of it in stereo! HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS VIDEO: Y6 plus A doubleheaders on Blue Ridge grade with Y6 pushers, Streamlined J 4-8-4s and K 4-8-2s in passenger service, massive steam turbine Jawn Henry pushing upgrade, and K-class 4-8-2s in freight yard service. The incomparable N&W "hooter whistles" in actual synchronized stereo sound. 50 minutes of video action plus 30 minutes of stills with locomotive and whistle sound background!
