Norfolk Southern’s CNO&TP line between Cincinnati and Chattanooga was infamous in steam days for its many tight tunnels. Called the Rathole, the line has been mostly daylighted, and recently much double track has been laid. We follow this busy and scenic route from Danville, Kentucky to Oakdale, Tennessee, and take a look at Kings Mountain Cut, and the big cuts south of Tateville.

    The Rathole…. famous for all the tunnels trains had to pass through, many which are now gone, but still an excellent region for rail fans. The scenery is awesome and there are lots of trains working hard through this rugged region. Narration could be a tad better especially for those of us who are not from Kentucky/Tennessee. But hey….. forget the negative and enjoy this great video of some fantastic railroading.

    Highball does a great job of showing trains on the CNO&TP in this video. We live near it and go there often on railfan trips. The only minor complaint we have about the show is that it doesn’t include the crew change point at Burnside KY where there is always lots of action, that aside it covers the cut at Kings Mountain and several highlights on the route!
