“Farewell to 2839” excursions ran in November of 1980 and we the action. This was the swan song for 2839’s mainline excursion tenure, and the engine would not disappoint.

Part 2 of this two-parter includes the rare mileage “Independence Limited” operated by the Roanoke Chapter NRHS. This trip originated in Lexington, Kentucky, and traveled the Chesapeake and Ohio to Ashland, Kentucky. We then see some shots on the Clinchfield as it travels through portions of Virginia, and Tennessee and follow it as far as Newport, Tennessee. We get to see 2839 on a roundtrip from Lexington south to Oneida, Tennessee into portions of the “Rat Hole” line.

We catch a few nice scenes including upgrade at Kings Mountain, and some fast running a couple of times. Then there was the “Farewell to 2839” two-day excursion operated from Atlanta to Alexandra retracing its original run of 1979.
