Norfolk & Western BIG STEAM


Norfolk & Western BIG STEAM


Articulated Y & A Class in the 1950s. It is hard to believe that such a film could exist: capturing the largest fleet of articulateds ever built operating on their original tracks, the Norfolk and Western main line between Bluefield, WV and Portsmouth, Ohio.

Add To Cart

Catch these powerful locomotives at their best! Agile A Class 2-6-6-4s pull high-speed manifest and roll long strings of heavyweight cars at 70 MPH. Huge Y class 2-8-8-2 sluggers shake the Appalachians to their very roots on the heavy grades and the tortuous curves of the Tug Fork. From start to finish every single frame is stunning action from the bygone age of real railroading!

This DVD replaces the former title, “Norfolk & Western Articulateds,” with a new version refreshed by digital image processing, meticulously reorganized by class and location, and with additional, never before seen film footage from our vaults.

Can’t say enough for these wonderful railroad films. They bring back fond memories of yesteryear. I remember them, those wonderful old workhorse N&W Y-6 class 2-8-8-2.
