This past Saturday I ventured out to the Natural Tunnel State Park in Duffield Va (aka injun territory) for the first annual Norfolk Southern Railroad Days. The main attractions for me was getting to walk the railway through the tunnels and getting to see the Norfolk Southern Heritage engine painted and lettered for the Virginian Railway.
|the Virginian is an EMD SD70ACe - bigger than you think|
|the crossing light and horn at the pedestrian crossover|
|oh, i forgot, an Operation Lifesaver C40-9W engine was there too|
here it's moving backwards into the tunnel
Norfolk Southern paid homage to its predecessor railroads during its 30th anniversary year by painting 20 new locomotives in commemorative schemes that reflect the heritage of those predecessors. Go here if you're interested: http://www.nscorp.com/nscportal/nscorp/Community/Heritage%20Locomotives
