It's been awhile since we have produced anything on contemporary excursion steam, but this one should be a welcome addition to your collection. Southern Railway 2-8-0 number 630 is seen on two weekends of steam trips in North Carolina in April of 2013. First we see three runs in one day from Spencer(Salisbury) to Barber Junction. These three roundtrips were unique for the spring of 2013 as they did not have diesel assist. At Barber we see trains being turned to head back east. We get some spirited running on these trips with an nice passenger train consist. The following day(A Sunday), 630 provides the power for the 3 afternoon museum trains at the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer. This is a short run, but we get to see the engine again without diesel, and there was no water car on these trips. On the second of three trips, we ride the train to provide some different perspective from the trackside views. 630 looks great on all these runs.

Is it bad that I like this engine over 4501? Probably! But I can�t pick who�s the best! 630 and 4501 are both ranked 8th of my 20 favorite steam excursion stars. Watch 630 concurring the loops aswell as her ferry move without diesel helpers she puts on quite a show! I actually want to see more of her now! That black paint and lonesome whistle she sure knows how to put on a show!

For The First Time Since The End Of the Original Steam Program in 1994, Greg Was 100% Lucky That NS Finally Created An Ultimate Revival. As Many of Us Know, 630 Was the First Engine to be Part of The Program. This 2013 DVD Features The Once 109-Year-Old 2-8-0 Operating at The North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer, As Well As Operating a 2 Day Round Trip From Ashville to Old Fort, NC Via The Elevated Balloon Loops. Who Knows What's Going To Happen When Greg Decided To Make More of the NS Steam Revival Series?
