Louisville and Nashville 4-6-2 #152 is one of the more authentic locomotives that operated in mainline excursions service during the late 1980s. The focus of this video is a series of operations with 152 in 1988 mostly on the TTI (Trans-Kentucky Transportation Inc) which is also a former Louisville and Nashville line from Paris to Maysville, Kentucky. First is an excursion from Cincinnati to Winchester, where the 152 has the usual diesel assisting on the mainline. Next we see a VIP trip run with 152 and 4 coaches, but no diesel assist, as it operates a roundtrip from Paris to Maysville and return in May of 1988. Then we (Greg Scholl Video) did a photographers special charter train with 152 and three heavyweight coaches, all lettered Louisville & Nashville. There are some timeless scenes on this former L&N line like running through the street at Carlisle, Kentucky with a freight depot on one side and a passenger depot on the other. There are two wig-way crossing signals (now history), tunnels, bridges, and various buildings. After the photo specials we see regular public excursions on this 50 mile line (with a diesel to assist this longer train) and there is more great action. In 2008 when converting this program to DVD, we went back to the original footage, and did a total re-edit with new narration, and included all the extra scenes which we did not have time for in the original 60 minute tape. There are 2 or three turntable scenes in Paris for example, as well as preparations, and extra runbys of the photo special, and Maysville excursions that followed. This is a fine locomotive and the locations that 152 operated in make the train seem suspended in a time warp. These 1988 trips were the last mainline trips for 152.

These now 30 year old footages on a now 10 year old dvd, features some excellent trips with 152 on the TTI, as well as never before seen footages of the Engine on the turntable as well as trips with help from Santa Fe 2647, if many of you still own the original 1988 editing of this program on either VHS or Betamax, there was an October 9, 1987 Cab Ride Over Kicking Over jet hill, as Greg decided to add more unused footages of 152 in 1988 on the re-edited version, but until almost 10 years later after this program was re-edited, he managed to put the 1987 Cab Ride Of 152 Over jet hill on the newly released Steam Cab Rides dvd. Overall, this is a great addition to your GSVP collection, as well as a trip back in time to Greg�s JVC/Umatic era.

Additional remarks by Steamboy:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Yes.
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Seemed a little high, but not too bad.
Recommend to others? A "Must Have"!

Louisville and Nashville 152 is not just another steam engine running excursions or on display in a museum. L&N 152 is the oldest known 4-6-2 Pacific to exist, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is currently on display at the Kentucky Railway Museum at New Haven, Kentucky. 152 is one of five Pacifics built for the L&N in 1905 by the Rogers Locomotive Works. 152 was one of the locomotives that pulled the car transporting Al Capone to Alcatraz from Atlanta GA in 1932.

<p>This program features 152 in 1988 pulling several excursions (with and without a diesel assist) in northern Kentucky. Particularly interesting is a photo charter is which 152 pulls 3 appropriately painted and lettered L&N heavyweight passenger cars without the extra water car. Highlights include street running in Carlisle KY, a couple wig-wag crossing signals on the Trans-Kentucky Transportation's former L&N line, and running without a diesel helper on the 2 percent grade south of Maysville KY. Another interesting scene is a staged run-by at a grade crossing with an antique fire engine that has a real siren (I hate those electronic sirens used now!).

<p>This video is newly re-mastered from original footage, and is very well done. It includes footage that was not part of the original VHS tape and all new narration. The photography is excellent. The kids will love the whistle and loud bark of 152's stack. This DVD is a “Must Have” as it is one of only 2 (that I am aware of) videos of L&N steam.
