Norfolk Southern’s Cincinnati to Portsmouth line is former Norfolk and Western trackage that winds and climbs through the hills of southern Ohio. Volume 1 is a trip of about 100 miles on the Peavine Line, with footage taken between 1995 and 1999. You’ll see great action on the grades outside Batavia, Peebles and Williamsburg. We will see a lot of neat locomotive types, including a lot of high nose Geeps, plus some of the new Dash 9 wide cabs being delivered in primer gray. During this time there was a daily local from Sardinia to Mowrystown, and several daily freights and extras too. Today this line is severed and no through trains operate – only an “as needed” local serves just two remaining customers, a sad sight indeed! But you can go back to when this line thrived, prior to Conrail being split-up, in this video and the follow-up: Norfolk Southern’s Peavine Volume 2.

  1. Lloyd

    Southern Ohio, in the 1990’s on the NS. much of which does not see the traffic today that was seen at the time of this video. The region is very scenic and I find that watching railroad videos….. the scenery is something I look for. It tells a story as to the difficulty it was putting the railroad through the region. And there is a nice variety of power in the video like EMD Geeps and GE dash’s. I enjoy seeing high hoods, and NS had plenty in those days. Very enjoyable video.

  2. Ricky

    This 1999 video was shot all the way from 1995 to 1998, which includes some great freights as well as some shots of the abandoned mowrystown branch, and even a visit to some locations near Greg’s home. Today the portion of the line between clare yard and Seaman Ohio is now operated by the new shortline called the Cincinnati Eastern Terminal railway, but we still have some fond memories of what railroading in the producer’s home town is all about.
