“Cincy Diesels” spends time in Cincinnati where the CSX line heads onto the C&O River Bridge approach where we see a number of trains at different visits, with the skyline of Cincinnati in the background. We also see the Norfolk Southern engine terminal in Ludlow, Kentucky. The Southern and Norfolk Southern merger is still fairly recent and we see Norfolk and Western power, Southern Power, and Norfolk Southern diesels. We will see GE U-boats on CSX, as well as on NS and some rare surprises are found, including a GP49. There are older GP38’s and even some GP30’s on NS, as well as a couple of cameo shots of CSX F-units during 1988.
Other diesels include a brief visit to see U-28b’s in Central Kentucky, and a cameo shot of Kentucky Central 2-6-2 #11 on the TTI Paris-Maysville line. In addition to this steamer, we will also take a brief look at Norfolk and Western 611 testing some repair work at Ludlow in 1990, and N&W 1218 in 1987 passing the famous Cincinnati Union Terminal.
