The Appalachian region has some of the most scenic and treacherous railroad routes on the east coast.

In June of 1979, Jonathan Reck and friends made the trek to Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia and North Carolina to railfan the busy operations of the Southern, RF&P, L&N, Clinchfield and other railroads.

Along the way, we'll view varied motive power and train consists as they travel through Neabsco Bay – Rockwood – Harriman Jct – Knoxville – Johnson City – Charlottesville and more.

Amtrak, Auto Trains and the Texas & Pacific #610 also make guest appearances

The quality of the video is not up to professional standards but considering the equipment that was available during the time frame that the film was taken, it's acceptable. It is a typical railfan production and I don't mean that as a criticism. If you are a Southern Railroad fan, this DVD will make you extremely happy since half of the running time depicts the Southern. Some of the shots of the E-8's pulling the Crescent are great. Coverage of the RF&P is good showing trains all along the system. All in all, this is a pretty good DVD because all of the railroads are now gone and it's great to be able to see them in action again. I have already recommended this DVD to a couple of friends and in my opinion, it's worth the money.
