Review of Norfolk Southerns Peavine Vol 2

 5 of 5 (1)
Norfolk Southern's Peavine Volume 2 is an interesting follow-up, which essentially turns out to be the last major years this line was operating through trains between Cincinnati and Portsmouth. In this video we show you new material shot after the first one was made, including the 2003 last run of L51 from Portsmouth. In addition we included a segment with additional shots we did not use in Volume one, some are the same locations, but different days and trains. There is also a neat snow segment with some good heavy action, and a coal train doubling a grade. Shot on our Betacam SP with digital editing, and chapter menus on the DVD.This is not narrated, but has scene descriptions(graphics) on the video to keep you informed as to date and other information.

Highlights Include:

* Grain train with Grand Trunk unit and GTW Caboose in 1992
* An entire section of footage which was shot 1995-1998 and would not fit in the first tape.
* A day shooting in 1999 with
