Oakdale, Tennessee is located on Norfolk Southern’s famous subsidiary, the CNO&TP. This program covers the 25 mile segment of the line between Lancing and Rockwood in Tennessee. Oakdale, at the center of that portion of the line, is a crew change point and is regarded as the Southern end of the infamous “Rathole”.
Double Stack and Manifest trains are documented, along with Auto Rack, Grain Trains and an amazing solid train of new Caterpillar earthmovers. There is also a special locomotive lash-up at the end of the program.
