Norfolk Southern Pacing Shot
An NS coal train heads north through the Monongahela/New Eagle, PA area in
October, 2006. This train came from the 84 Mine in Vanceville on the
Ellsworth Secondary, and was travelling at 11 MPH.

This is a video showing a westbound Canadian Pacific train where both
railfans and the train operators bring us the trip of this train. You never
know what is hiding on the side line ...
This is the MLT route add-on ...
New Freedom PA - Biking, Trains & Station Restoration (with slide show) (1996-2001)
A few short bike ride video sequences edited together (yes, I can ride and
video at the same time!) showing the progress of the New Freedom PA station
restoration and trains, shot from 1996 up to cessation of tourist trains in
2001. My impetus for uploading this is to show the variety of rail
equipment once present in New Freedom Yard-and I enjoy biking!
And another vid edited in my storytelling style, starting off as we ride
north on the NCRY Trail, passing that good'ol Mason-Dixon Line, surmounting
an upgrade known as Parr's Ridge (also crossed by B&O at Mount Airy and
Barnsville MD, and by WMRY at Westminster and Lineboro MD). We then pass
the start of the track and arrive in New Freedom proper, soon passing lots
of trains and things! Compare the station in the first sequence with the
shots of it in the later sequences!
A couple "classic" locomotives are in the yard; a WMRY Alco RSD-5 (NOT
original WMRY) and a B&O Royal Blue E8 (not sure original or not-if you
know, please tell me).
In the second sequence we make a side trip to Rutter's Store. I
deliberately left this in so one might catch the gas prices-and GASP!!
Obviously bittersweet! Two more sequences follow, with some different
rolling stock in the yard. We finally end with a runby of the B&O E8-and a
then & now slide show of the New Freedom Station area. Shame that some of
the equipment they acquired NEVER got to run!
The trains stopped running in September 2001. The Stewartstown line
continued to run after that, but it too stopped running a few years later
though its operators are hoping to get it up and running again-if they can
raise the funds to upgrade track and bridges! Check out their website for
more info: www.stewartstownrr.com.
Still I wish the gas prices were the same as in this video! I might just be
able to afford more trips to Shenandoah Junction, Strasburg and Montevideo
Road! Heck, I might even be able to go grocery shopping!
P.S. Since posting this I've received comments and info on what's actually
a "pseudo" B&O loco painted to look like one of their onetime E8s. Although
the NCRY was a former Penn line since 1865, at the time of these vids it
was a tourist line, so the motive power was designed to be aesthetic for
tourist runs-hence the paint jobs on both the B&O and WMRY engines, though
neither came from those railroads. I appreciate the comments and
P.P.S. Stewartstown RR runs again!!
NS MSTS trains
just some NS trains on a made up route in MSTS. The sounds I had either
made or edited myself.
Playing with some new sounds in Microsoft Train Simulator.
MSTS cab ride over the Saluda grade
Westbound Norfolk Southern train W77 has arrived at Melrose, NC in route to
Asheville. The train will be broken into sections for the ascent of the
5.1% grade to Saluda, NC where it will be reassembled and continue west. We
ride along in a trailing unit as the 9,000 horsepower consist brings
the first cut of 22 cars to the summit. The train will rise over 600' in
altitude over a distance of three miles, and three trips will be needed to
bring the 56 car train over the mountain.
My NS D9-40CW on msts.
I just downloaded this C40-9W off of the train-sim website. I then put a
custom k5la and correct cab controls on it. I'll get a shot of the cab in
the next vid.

This is just a quick way to un freeze your iPod. it also helps to stop it
from lagging. I had that issue once and restarting it solved theproblem.

MSTS Norfolk Southern Mixed Goods Freight
NS Mixed Goods Freight Train with a massive 12-engine locomotive power and
over 200 pieces of rollingstock. I love long freights with many engines. I
got the idea from watching videos online of actual real life freight trains
with 9-12 engines.
