This program covers Norfolk Southern early in its existence, with plenty of locomotives painted in the colors of the Southern Railway and Norfolk & Western mixed with newly repainted Norfolk Southern power. Most of this program was filmed on the former Southern Railway St. Louis line between Bluford and Albers, Illinois. This line includes Centralia, a well known Illinois hot spot.

Rare locomotives are prominent, with EMD GP30s, GP35s, SD45s, GP50s and GP59s abounding. In addition to some of the rarities, brand new SD60s and C39-8s make brief appearances alongside SD40 and C30-7s. There is also plenty of footage of locomotives running long hood forward; a custom N.S. inherited from both the Southern and N&W. In addition to the scenes in southern Illinois, we make side trips to Indiana, Kentucky and Alabama for additional views of Norfolk Southern at work.

    I love EVERYTHING about the Southern Railway! High hood locomotives running long hood first, always trying new things and the locations of The Rathole, Saluda, etc. This video provides plenty of Southern motive power in the early days of Norfolk Southern in one of the more obscure locations: Southern Illinois on the Louisville-St. Louis line, plus some shots in Birmingham, AL of a young NS. If you LOVE the Southern you will LOVE this video!
