The final four F-units on the CSX railroad – and in mainline class-1 freight service in the USA – are featured on this DVD. Former Clinchfield Railroad FP7 #118 and F7 #116 and B-Units 117 and 119 are seen in historic film segments filmed during the 1960s and in modern freight service on CSX. These were the last F-Units to power freight trains for a class-1 railroad in the United States. Most of the coverage is through some pretty rugged country on the former L&N in Kentucky and Tennessee. There are many tunnels, and bridges, and grades such as Duff Mountain, TN. You’ll also see some regular freight traffic which includes a variety of paint schemes at this time. You’ll really enjoy these classic old F-units in action.

The F-units only lasted 6 months in the roadrailer service, and eventually CSX gave up on roadrailer type of service, and the F-units were put in business train service for awhile before being leased and eventually taken off the roster. This newly-released-on-DVD program features some fantastic new “head-on” footage of unit 118 as it pulls the Potomac Eagle Excursion train. This new footage was taken on an engine running just ahead of the 118.
