I'm a volunteer at the Transportation Museum and I love seeing 1218, along
with Norfolk and Southern Class J #611.

Автор AngelOfChicago (8 лет)
Indeed, agreeing with PepsiAddict18, N&W #1218 is a lovely locomotive!
Having seen this beauty up-close with him (yes, I know him personally), I
can safely say she is my favourite American steam locomotive ^_^

great video!!!

@meccaturbo Actually, it is the ex-Nickel Plate Road line from Chicago to
Buffalo

Автор brandon morgado (7 лет)
oh for god's sake,611 and 1218 are still running! you must not be thinking
clearly.

Автор John Rockey (5 лет)
Different railroads provided different routes and levels of service and
schedules. Railroad competion was not quite the same as airlines, where you
might have 6 companies flying between the same two locations, that really
didn't happen much with railroads.

Автор danielchance (5 лет)
Thanks for clearing that up for me.

Автор amtrakf40 (8 лет)
Yup, they did shortly after 1218 entered excursion service and again later,
but that time TRIPLEHEADED with Nickel Plate Road 2-8-2 #587!

Автор WhyAyeMann (6 лет)
If the 1218 ran at top speed carring 5 miles of loaded freight like it used
to in its frieght days, not even the toughest and strongest man alive could
not help but to soil his pants.

Not a "challenger" - that would be a 4-6-6-4 arrangement. 1218 is 2-6-6-4.
Nice video. That's a lot of zoom for '91. I've seen the real thing in
northwestern Va.. I miss it.

Actually, I think they did. I thought I remember seeing a shot in Trains

I live here in Roanoke and I feel your pain at the Transportation Museum. i
think it's crummy of our city to donate 3 million to the art museum but
won't help out the TPofV. I haven't been there since it moved when I was
little. hope to see the old trains again soon.

Автор Nick K (6 лет)
It wouldn't do any harm to the regular brakes if the diesel wasn't there,
they did it all the time in steam days and even into diesel days. However,
the dynamic brakes are used on long descents. The diesel is also there as
protection, in case something happens to the steamer, the diesel can take
over and get the train to the next siding, instead of blocking the main.

Автор danielchance (5 лет)
okay, I have a question: With all of these railroading companies that had
steam in the golden age of rail, was it like selecting an airline to fly
with now a days, meaning, you got a better deal going with Union Pacific
than Norfolk and Western- so that's who you went with, or was it just a
matter of who got to your station first, and who had seats?

Автор PepsiAddict18 (8 лет)
Western, I mean

Автор leejax01 (6 лет)
Very rare to see a solo steamer on an excursion train...there is usually a
diesel some where around to share some of the load and to help preserve the
unit...and that was no small train either considering. Great video.

Автор mjkft22 (8 лет)
very nice indeed shame to see her stuffed up on a storage track at the
Transportation Museum got any more footage of 1218?

Great vid! Loooong passenger excursion train, too! If I were in the front

I rode behind the 611 and 1218. As you say, the young turks at NS and CSX
put a stop to steam programs. It's amazing that UP still has one. NS really
restored two first gen diesels, though, for promo events. But I doubt we'll
ever see steam again. Sad.

Автор Stephen Riley (8 лет)
they had people in the baggege car

Автор nscarlcamp (7 лет)
its true we'll probably won't see the 611 or the 1218 out and running,
reasoning, insurance, someone got hurt the last time the 611 came through
in 1994, plus Goode wasn't a big fan of steam, on the other hand, Wick
Moorman is, so who knows....

Автор braintree2 (5 лет)
Actually, it depended on the location. From New York to Buffalo, for
example, you had the NYCentral, the Erie, the lackawanna, the Lehigh Valley
and the Pennysylvania. Other places, not so much. From New York to Philly
it was the Pennsy and a combo of Jersey Central plus the Reading.

Автор jongodwin (7 лет)
Indeed, I remember about 10 or more years ago I saw a boxcar in the local
NS yard with some rather unique graffiti. It said, and I quote, "Norfolk
Southern sucks for stopping the steam program." My dad was there and siad,
"only a railfan would write something like that." It was classic.

Автор navmark77 (7 лет)
Man that's a long train. Nice quality video.

Автор Daniel Arnold (6 лет)
can anyone give me the names of the passenger cars on this train?

Автор nicholasbreeden (6 лет)
yeah you are right...i htink i posted that at 1 in the morning simetime
three moinths ago...but yea...the regular brakes would do just fine in
stopping that train...but they also have a diesel there to generate
electricity for the passenger cars...seein as how they don't run the gens
anymore

Автор navmark77 (7 лет)
Eh? 611 and 1218 were taken out of excursion service in the latter part of
the 1990's. Norfolk Southern CEO David Goode decreed it, as soon as Bob
Claytor was barely out the door.

Автор nicholasbreeden (6 лет)
that's not what they use diesels for on these trains...the diesels are
there for dynamic breaking because if you had a train going that fast that
heavy and they used the regular breaks they would burn the break shoes off
before they stopped the train.

Автор brandon morgado (8 лет)
did 611 and 1218 ever had a doubleheader.
