614 Coal Trains is an unusual video of steam action in regular service on coal trains in the dead of winter. January of 1985 saw six different working days with four eastbound coal trains, and two westbound empties. These coal trains are one of more dramatic steam events of the last several decades. It has all the elements: Big steam with C&O 614 4-8-4, the engine running on its home rails in C&O territory, cold winter action and regularly scheduled trains! The purpose was to test steam capabilities at that time and so 614 pulled real revenue freight. 614 Coal Trains was originally shot with older equipment, not on a tripod and with no narration. This newly re-edited version features narration, titles and additional footage.
