Tennessee Valley Steam: Return of 630


On a beautiful spring day we headed down to the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum of Chattanooga, Tennessee to see ther newly restored Southern Railway 2-8-0 #630 operating on their Missionary Ridge Local runs. The locomotive, a 1904 product of the American Locomotive Company (ALCO), is a wonderful sight to see and putson a great show! We’ll explore most of their 3 mile line to their East Chattanooga shops and back and even include some cab footage! Enjoy! Photos: www.railpictures.net www.railpictures.net
