Added to this were other preserved mainline locomotives including former Nickel Plate Road Baldwin 2-8-2 No. 587.

In 1991 the steam programme celebrated 25 years of continuous excursions with a gala dinner in Chattanooga followed the next day by a triple headed excursion out of the city.

This tape covers some of the steam excursions run by Norfolk Southern at this period and highlights all 4 locomotives hard at work throughout the eastern U.S.A.
