DVD.Atlanta_Terminal.TW,cover.jpg DVD- Atlanta Terminal
NS and CSX jointly operate approximately three miles of trackage through midtown and downtown Atlanta. The joint trackage begins at Howell Wye, at the signal known as King Plow, on the NS side and winds its way through Atlanta. We set up on the West Marietta Street overpass to catch a large volume of NS intermodal and CSX freight trains entering Howell Wye. NS's South District receives several BNSF coal trains from Wyoming's Powerder River Basin to feed Georgia Power's Schere Plant, the largest caol-fires power plant in the world. For sheer volume it is hard to beat the Atlanta terminal.

Featuring N&W 1218, N&W 611, NKP 587 and L&N 152.

Norfolk Southern Steam Freights is a very unusual video because steam power on freight trains of any kind are very rare today. In this video we take you to: Roanoke, Virginia; Lynchburg, Virginia; Portsmouth, Ohio; Stearns, Kentucky and Birmingham, Alabama to see four different engines on five different consists. These runs were seldom covered on video because most of these trains ran during the week and were instances when the engines had to be moved without the regular passenger car fleet. You'll see everything from mixed freights to a short caboose hop to a look at a 50-car hopper train from Roanoke on the grade to Christiansburg. This interesting video was shot between 1987 and 1989 and captures some of the most unusual trips on Norfolk Southern trackage with a variety of NS locomotives. You'll see good closeups of each engine, plus the best locations on each line for your viewing pleasure in this fast-paced video.

A family portrait at the N.C. Transportation Museum

Norfolk Southern has honored its predecessor railroads during 2012, its anniversary year, by painting 20 new locomotives in commemorative schemes that reflect the heritage of those predecessors. Since the 1820s hundreds of railroad companies were built, merged, reorganized and consolidated into what eventually became today's Norfolk Southern, itself created from the consolidation of Norfolk and Western Railway and Southern Railway in 1982. The heritage locomotives represent most of the railroads that played significant roles in Norfolk Southern's history.

multimedia/mm_NS_Bement.jpg DVD- NS Bement to Decatur
The original Wabash Railway system was like an X with the Buffalo and Detroit to Kansas City, and Chicago to St. Louis lines crossing at Decatur. The twenty miles of double track between Bement and Decatur in central Illinois was the busiest section of track on the former Wabash Railway system. At Bement, 20 miles east of Decatur, the line from Chicago joined the line from Detroit and Buffalo. Just west of Decatur the lines to St. Louis and Kansas City went their separate ways. Traffic on what NS now calls their Lafayette District grew as a result of the Conrail split four years ago, and today this funnel has twice the number of freight trains that it did during Wabash days and is a part of Norfolk Southern's busy automotive artery from Detroit to St. Louis and Kansas City. This DVD shows over twenty four hours of action on Norfolk Southern's Lafayette district, their auto artery, between Bement and Decatur in May of 2003.

This DVD is about N&W steam operation over the famous Blue Ridge Grade in 1957. Filmed with the cooperation of N&W management, producer E. C. Eddy was given full access to the line, yards and was allowed to ride aboard the Y class helper and pusher engines as they moved heavy coal trains from Roanoke to the top of the grade. No other film of N&W has the on-train perspectives that Mr. Eddy captured on 16mm film. You'll be amazed at his coverage. We have left the film intact with the original narration by Mr. Eddy and his own sounds which were recorded on his visit in 1957.
