The story of the renaissance of Southern steam continues with double-headed trips behind Southern Railway #722 and #750 through the gorge of the beautiful French Broad River. The ex-Canadian Pacific Royal Hudson #2839 appears on a four day swing over the highest summits of the Appalachians via the old Clinchfield Railroad. Finally, C&O 2-8-4 #2716 tackles the famous Braswell Grade in Georgia. Dramatic air photography captures the sweep of the finest scenery in the South, while close-ups from the ground capture the grit and power of mainline steam brought to life. As the Norfolk Southern relights the firebox of Southern steam today, this show tips a hat to those who kept the flame burning for twenty-five years.

The program narration was a detailed history of each of the locomotives, and if that is what the viewer wants, then it was done OK. But the rest of the program was simply run-by followed by run-by. The price was excessive for only a 39 minute program of run-bys.
