This video features ex-L&N 4-6-2 #152. Built in 1905 by Alco's Rogers Works in Paterson, New Jersey, 152 is the oldest active 4-6-2 operating in the United States. We'll take a quick tour of the Kentucky Railway Museum, then it's off on 152's inaugural run between Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky. Along the way, 152 encounters the 1.6% grade of Jett Hill at Frankfort, Kentucky. She puts on quite a show getting over the top.|
More than forty runbys, cab scenes, pacing, and a rare doubleheader with ex-Monon BL2 #32, make this an action-packed video you should not miss.
Digitally re-mastered, this video brings you 43 minutes of great steam and diesel action!
