Norfolk Southern Steam Freights DVD
As the third tape in our Norfolk Southern Steam collection we have a very unique video showing some of the NS engines on freight trips. Many times the engines would be sent to the next city for a trip, and the excursion coaches would already be there from another trip, and the engines would need a train for braking purposes. Over a 3 year period (1987-1989) we collected scenes of a few such trips. N&W 4-8-4 class J #611 pulls a freight from Birmingham to Chattanooga, and along the way picks up a diesel that is not operating properly on a southbound train, making for an interesting situation. Also you'll see shots of 611 at the Birmingham shops and yard. Louisville and Nashville 4-6-2 #152 is seen with a caboose after switching with 611 in Kentucky(that is on volume 2). Nickel Plate Road 2-8-2 #587 is seen pulling a short train of Bricks on the Southern Mainline in Virginia. Norfolk and Western 2-6-6-4 number 1218 is seen pulling a mixed freight from the Portsmouth, Ohio yard and heading north on the Columbus line in 1988, and on an empty coal train from Roanoke westbound in 1987. Again, these scenes are not likely to be repeated. The action is very good.
