Southern Steam Locomotive Trips Planned for Spring
NORFOLK, Va. (AP) – Norfolk Southern is partnering with the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum and the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society to host steam locomotive excursion trips in 2013.
The Norfolk, Va.-based railroad operator says the spring trips will take place in Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
The Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum is the largest operating historical excursion railroad in the Southeast. It was founded in 1961 in Chattanooga.
The Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society was formed in 1972 with the goal of saving Nickel Plate Road steam locomotive 765 from rusting away in a city park.
