Modern revenue freight trains – pulled by vintage steam! Many times these beautiful vintage steam engines would be sent to a city for a scheduled railfan trip, but the excursion coaches would already be there – so the engines would need a train for braking purposes. These are then rare shots indeed: modern Norfolk Southern freight trains being pulled by vintage steam engines. Over a 3 year period GSVP collected scenes of a few such trips. The NS engines are no longer running, so these scenes are unlikely to be repeated! N&W 4-8-4 class J #611 pulls a freight from Birmingham to Chattanooga, and along the way picks up a diesel that is not operating properly on a southbound train, making for an interesting situation. Also you’ll see shots of 611 at the Birmingham shops and yard.

Louisville and Nashville 4-6-2 #152 is seen with a caboose after switching with 611 in Kentucky(that is on volume 2). Nickel Plate Road 2-8-2 #587 is seen pulling a short train of Bricks on the Southern mainline in Virginia. Norfolk and Western 2-6-6-4 number 1218 is seen pulling a mixed freight from the Portsmouth, Ohio yard and heading north on the Columbus line in 1988, and on an empty coal train from Roanoke westbound in 1987.

    The 611 segment was from May 1987, 1218’s freight was on during or after the NRHS convention. Plus Short segments on 152 at a rarely seen caboose hop in 1988 or 1989, plus 587 on a Short boxcar only freights in 1989 after the NRHS convention.
