This program showcases the 15 tough miles of the old Norfolk and Western from the East Yard at Bluefield to the crossovers at Oakvale. The West Virginia autumn scenery is a beautiful backdrop for the parade of trains that Norfolk Southern operates on this line. This is the western end of the Christiansburg District of the Virginia Division. The line follows the East River Valley as it twists and curves its way to the New River at Glen Lynn, VA. There is a ruling grade of 1.6% for westbounds.
A nice bonus is the appearance of Norfolk Southern office train specials with classic “F Unit” locomotives. Informative subtitles with location, time, train symbols and pertinent information.
