In Volume one of Norfolk Southerns Peavine we take you on an east to west journey showing scenes from Cincinnati to Portsmouth, roughly 100 miles. Living along this route we would go out and shoot the best sections mostly between Batavia and Peebles where there were two grades at each of those two towns. In addition there were grades westbound from Lawshe to Mt. Zion, and a short one from Williamsburg. We will see a lot of neat locomtove types and especially a lot of high nose Geeps, plus some of the new Dash 9 wide cabs being delivered in primer gray. We have selected a lot of neat locations and great action makes this a contemporary video you will really enjoy. During this time there was a daily local freight that even ran on a Branch Line from Sardinia to Mowrystown which we covered and several daily freights and extras are seen. Today this line is severed and no through trains operate so its a historic show. Only an "as needed" local serves just two remaining customers, as sad sight indeed. But the line was thriving indeed, in the days prior to Conrail being split-up with NS getting part of that railroad, and changing the Peavine in the process. Shot on our Betacam SP with digital editing, and chapter menus on the DVD.

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.
