This is a neat show with two engines doubleheading, and there are no diesels to be seen. That is rare for this time period. The video was shot between 2014 and 2018. We begin with a doubleheaded excursion from the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum in Chattanooga to Summerville, Georgia. 2-8-2 number 4501 leads southbound, with 2-8-0 number 630 leading going north. This is an October trip and features some fall colors.

The final climb up to the TVRM tracks in East Chattanooga is quite memorable, and we will see that once more at the end of our whole show.

Care is given to finding locations where the engines will be working up grades when possible.

Next we have a 2-day photo freight charter in March of 2018. The first day is all on TVRM grounds including the line from Grand Junction to East Chattanooga, through Missionary Ridge Tunnel. We see multiple runbys at most locations. In most scenes 630 is leading but 4501 also leads on a couple of scenes. On the second day, the duo makes a run on the 50-mile long line to Summerville, and does numerous locations in good lighting. One of the highlights is the grade south from Rossville. Motor vehicles are used as props in several locations to spice things up a bit for the photographers.

If all that weren't enough we finish up with a November 2018 excursion to Summerville with 630 leading. Again good locations are sought for hearing the engines and with good lighting. The final scene has the pair working hard in the dark on the climb at East Chattanooga at the end of the day. On one of the passenger excursions you will also see each engine being turned on the turntable at Summerville. Two engines, 4 days of doubleheading, and great action. Hard to beat this duo!
