Southern Doubleheaders DVD5 of 5 (2)
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.

In this installment of the 4501 revival collection, The program starts with 4501 whistling while swinging it's bell followed by the duo on a freight train. After the opening titles, the action begins on Saturday November 8 2014 as 4501 & 630 are backing up for the day long trip to Summerville from the Tennessee valley railroad museum in Chattanooga. Listen to the radio chatter. During the preparation to Summerville, Christopher kovacs (trainmaster844) narrated the history of both 630 and 4501. While the 2 engines are smoking up some steam around the grand junction depot. A map of the line to Summerville is shown. This trip was recorded by Brady sanker in this segment along with the 4 year later trip later in the program. During the 2014 coverage, 4501 leads the southbound trip while 630 operates the return trip. The 2 engines departed the depot, then 4501 whistles along holtzclaw ave. Note the grand trunk western coach in the consist. Next, an extended repeat from the opening scene is shown as the engines roll through the trees at Rossville Georgia along foster ave, which is the start of the missionary ridge grade. Note the town's water tower in the background as 4501 whistles through the trees while there is some commentary from other onlookers, as well as a diesel horn offscreen. Afterwards, the doubleheader is north of the old house at rock spring, as they negotiate a bend. Again listen to 4501's whistle. Next 4501 and 630 are at noble. At Martindale, the doubleheader passes by a small grassy field, then the 2 engines took turns whistling. A slow order was made at trion as 4501 and 630 crosses the chattooga river bridge, as well as passing by other chasers. Note the 360 degree bell movement on 4501. All to soon both 630 and 4501 arrived at Summerville as they took turns on the turntable. Once turned around, 630 is leading the train for the return trip north of Summerville. The 2 engines took turns whistling at the crossing. Afterwards the doubleheader crosses the chatooga river bridge at trion. Next, the doubleheader climbs the trade at Martindale. Note the sounds of the children offscreen as 630 and 4501 whistle for the crossing together. Moments later, the special is north of Lafayette. Afterwards, the sun is glowing as 630 and 4501 are near rock spring. Next, the special is south of Rossville as it heads back to the state line. Note the 11 automobiles alongside the rails. Another look at the map is shown. As night falls, 4501 and 630 are climbing up the grade as they are back at the museum tracks on the belt line. This concludes the November 2014 coverage.
