Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

Taped in the spring of 1997 when the new widecab GE's were out and about in force, both on the point and as helpers. This is coal country, and we caught lots of heavy coal drags twisting through the narrow valleys and blasting up the grades and through the tunnels that make up this highly scenic route. NS still uses cabooses for back up moves on the mine runs, I was surprised to find them backing up for 15 or 20 miles. Imagine a new C40-9W on one end and a caboose on the other. Also caught a coal train at War Eagle being run around by half a dozen trains. A great show and another of my favorites.

This is a well done presentation on the Pocahontas Division. This is back when coal trains where every where on the division and everything wasn't lead by a wide cab GE. This was shot during the time NS was testing SP AC44s on the pusher between Farm and Bluefield. Its an enjoyable feature with plenty of motive power variety!
