Review of Norfolk & Western Steam Passenger Trains DVD

 4 of 5 (2)
This video has been in the works for around 10 years. When we released N&W Steam Freights in 2005 we put a short preview for this one on the end. Since then we have had this new passenger train footage re-transferred so that it looks better overall, and now its edited together for you to enjoy. Since Mr Scholl was my father, it makes sense that the majority of trackside runbys was between Cincinnati and Sardinia, Ohio, since we lived in Batavia, Ohio. N&W still having steam was the primary reason we purchased a house in the area. The main focus are two trains, "The Powhatan Arrow", trains 25 and 26, and "The Cavalier" with trains 15 and 16. Generally most of the footage is 26 and 16 in the morning on the Cincinnati line. We enjoy things like start-ups, Cincinnati Union Terminal departure and engine facility where all railroads kept their power, and some scenes near Clare(the freight yard). Then we move eastward from Clare along Round Bottom Road via Perintown, Batavia, Williamsburg, Mt
