Louisville and Nashville 4-6-2 #152 is one of the more authentic locomotives that has ever operated in mainline excursion service. 152 now runs for the Kentucky Railway Museum in New Haven, but in the late 80s was running on old home mainline rails! The focus of this video is a series of operations with 152 in 1988 mostly on the TTI (Trans-Kentucky Transportation Inc) – a former Louisville and Nashville line from Paris to Maysville, Kentucky. First is an excursion from Cincinnati to Winchester, where the 152 has the usual diesel assisting on the mainline. Next we see a VIP trip run with 152 and 4 coaches, but no diesel assist, as it operates a round trip from Paris to Maysville and return in May of 1988.

Then Greg Scholl Video Productions sponsored a ‘photographers special’ charter train with 152 and three heavyweight coaches, all lettered Louisville & Nashville. There are some timeless scenes on this former L&N line – like running through the street at Carlisle, Kentucky with a freight depot on one side and a passenger depot on the other. There are two wig-wag crossing signals (now history), tunnels, bridges, and various historic buildings. After the photo specials we see regular public excursions on this 50 mile line (with a diesel to assist this longer train) and there is more great action. This was originally released on VHS in 1988, but has now been introduced on DVD. When converting this gem to DVD, GSVP went back to the original footage, and did a total re-edit with new narration, and included all the extra scenes which would not fit in the original 60 minute VHS production. There are 2 or three turntable scenes in Paris for example, as well as preparations, and extra runbys of the photo special, and Maysville excursions that followed. This is a fine locomotive and the locations that 152 operated in make the train seem suspended in a time warp. These 1988 trips were the last mainline trips for 152.

    These now 30 year old footages on a now 10 year old dvd, features some excellent trips with 152 on the TTI, as well as never before seen footages of the Engine on the turntable as well as trips with help from Santa Fe 2647, if many of you still own the original 1988 editing of this program on either VHS or Betamax, there was an October 9, 1987 Cab Ride Over Kicking Over jet hill, as Greg decided to add more unused footages of 152 in 1988 on the re-edited version, but until almost 10 years later after this program was re-edited, he managed to put the 1987 Cab Ride Of 152 Over jet hill on the newly released Steam Cab Rides dvd. Overall, this is a great addition to your GSVP collection, as well as a trip back in time to Greg’s JVC/Umatic era.
