Product Description

Fifty years after Mr. Link made his famous portraits of steam in the night, we revisit many of these places to see what has changed and, surprisingly, what has not. Vintage film of 1950s action at Roanoke and elsewhere blends with steam excursions of the 1980s and modern N-S freights to provide a half century perspective of change. Visit with a couple pictured in Mr. Link's convertible at Vesuvius, VA, as they reminisce about the event. Visit, in addition to Roanoke, depots at Matewan, Green Cove, and Abingdon, all of which display the lore of the N&W. The trains are totally changed. The buildings in some cases still stand. But the mountains remain, as does the hospitality of the people in the rural towns where 0. Winston Link worked his nocturnal magic over a half century ago.  This new edition includes the classic railroad infomercial by Norfolk & Western:  N&W Operation Fast Freight.  85 minutes that will delight and both rail fans and history buffs.

    Interesting to see how the places have changed or disappeared over the years. It was hard to believe that it's been that long.
