Review of Mainline Steam Spectacular DVD

 5 of 5 (2)
Mainline steam is just a shadow of its former self. Its hard to find mainline trips today that aren't run with diesel helpers for security, if you can find a mainline steam trip that is. In this show we have assembled some exciting steam action with 3 engines running on the mainline without diesel helpers. In some cases these were the last time, or last year they ran on the mainline period? Our coverage spans 2011 to 2017. This is all on Norfolk Southern trackage. In November 2011 we see southern 2-8-0 running from Chattanooga to Knoxville and return. During the stay in Knoxville we see 630 on the Knoxville to Alco trips plus a trip on the same line with Southern 2-8-0 number 154, which is an added engine to our 3-engine show. During July 2012 630 is back in Knoxville to handle a Norfolk Southern employee trip to Alco. 630 stars on one more weekend in September of 2013 as it runs 2 trips a day from Chattanooga to Cleveland, Tennessee. Thats 4 trips total which were the last time 630 ra
