The late 1980's were a golden era for the operation of preserved steam locomotives. Both Union Pacific and Norfolk Southern had official steam programs, and the ranks of locomotives restored by volunteer groups was expanding.
1905 built Louisville & Nashville 4-6-2 #152 was returned to steam in 1985. The next spring, the bugs had been worked out and the we follow the engine out on the mainline between the Kentucky Railroad Museum's site at Anchorage and Lexington, Kentucky.
Come along for a look at the old Pacific operating at speeds she is unlikely to attain again as she is now regulated to museum track age between New Haven and Boston, Kentucky.
#152 tackles a few hills along the way, and occasionally gets to open up on straight rail. The newcomer to the excursion scene put on a show with vintage heavyweight cars, showing why the L&N made the right choice when she was the only steam passenger engine selected for preservation.
Another program from the camera of videographer George Redmond, this DVD presents a vanished look at mainline excursion steam.
