Verlag: TLC Publishing
Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: When diesel power began to displace steam in earnest during the early 1960s, the publicity departments at Southern and later at Norfolk Southern (after the merger of the former with Norfolk & Western) began offering excursions on passenger trains pulled by classic locomotives like Southern Railway No. 4501, N&W Class J No. 611, and the giant N&W A-Class No. 1218. For three decades, these steam-powered excursions delighted railfans throughout the Southeast. Color photography of these bygone behemoths and others in action transport readers back to the pastoral steam era, just as the excursion trains did for 30 years. A fascinating text details the nostalgia-filled public relations steam operations of 1964 to 1994, and is accompanied by rosters of every excursion documented during the period.

Inhaltsangabe: Southern and Norfolk Southern excursion trains delighted enthusiasts for 28 years. Jim Wrinn writes the story, from the last run of Norfolk and Western (N&W) J No. 611 in regular service in 1959 and chronicles the lack of excursions in the early 1960s. He covers the beginning, and expansion, of steam excursions on the Southern under Graham Claytor, overviews the endless stream of different "hired" steam locomotives from other railroads, and brings the story into the N&W era with the 611 and 1218. Superb color photographs and in-depth text tell the fascinating story of steam train operations.
