Norfolk & Western Steam in the 1950s Volume 2
A little bit of everything N&W is here on this DVD: Freight and passenger trains, steam and diesel, excursions and even the scrapping of a steamer. This is rare color film footage now brought to you edited and transferred to DVD. Includes passenger and freight trains on the "Punkin Vine Line" (Roanoke to Winston Salem) from the camera of David Driscoll (from the N&W Historical Society collection). We'll also see some streamlined steam!
Floyd Fish captured some M Class action on the Blacksburg-Christiansburg local (known as the Huckleberry Train). We see a 611 fan trip through Williamson, West Virginia in 1959. And we'll see scenes from the Roanoke area in 1958 shot by Nick Kallas. See a big Class Y5 getting scrapped! Shot on silent 8mm film and that is how it comes to you, backed with music, as silent "film" now on DVD. 8mm color and B&W film, silent with music. No narration/sound.
