Fantastic color images from 8 mm film taken in the Appalachians on the last holdouts of steam railroading! They carried everything from coal to chemicals and from titanium to tourists! We all know of the Cass Scenic Railroad. Our material stems from the early days of the tourist line in the '60's. The Shays were ferrying passengers up Bald Knob and the lumber mill was still standing. The Virginia Blue Ridge Railway had two steam locomotives. Out program features an 0-6-0, of US Army origin, as it hauls titanium dioxide to a Southern Railway interchange. The standard gauge remnants of the narrow gauge "Tweetsie", The East Tennessee and Western North Carolina RR, soldiered on into the early sixties using two beautiful ex-Southern Consolidations. Follow the 2-8-0's as they work from Johnson City to Elizabethton. The famed Buffalo Creek and Gauley still used Consolidations well into the '60's. Watch them struggle mightily upgrade with empty hoppers for the mine at Widen, West Virginia. This tape is the definitive work on the operations of the BC&G.
