NORFOLK SOUTHERN 1980s Ohio Lines Series from 1-West Productions™

NORFOLK SOUTHERN 1980s Ohio Lines Series from 1-West Productions is produced and available for purchase on this website, exclusively from 1-West Productions™.  We have Vintage titles, such as in our NOROFLK SOUTHERN 1980s Ohio Lines™ Series avilable for purchase.  Converted from original color VHS tape, filmed in the 1980s, this Series captures what NS looked like during its early years of the merger.  Most scenes are shown around the Bellevue, OH area, one of NS’s main Terminals of the time.

1wpftrsrsBBBellevue originally was home of the PRR (Sandusky Branch Main that later was purchased by the N&W in the 60s), Nickel Plate (Buffalo and Chicago Mains), Wheeling & Lake Erie (Toledo and Brewster Mains), and the New York Central (Toledo Branch that went to Elyria).  In the 1960s and 70s, Bellevue was the home of just the Penn Central, and N&W, and then just NS in the 1980s to today.

NS was formed in 1982, by the merging of the N&W and Southern Railways, to keep up with the soon-to-be merging of Chessie and Seaboard System, to form CSX in 1986.

This Series shows many fallen flags on freight equipment on NS trains, older facilities, crossovers, track layouts, and switches that have since changed, older signals, some cabooses, older EMD and GE locomotives, caboose and locomotive deadlines, older yard shots, and more.  Not all trains are the same, and the transition of the merger shows as time goes on. This Series is a must-have for collectors and railfans alike.

All DVDs in this Series have part narration, subtitles, disc menus, original sound, and color, original content, approx. 60 mins each, and video to Standard Digital and 4:3 format.

Railroad DVD Preview: NORFOLK SOUTHERN 1980s, PART 4 & 5, Ohio Lines™ (1-WEST PRODUCTIONS™)

Image of NS 1980s, Ohio Lines Series™, Part 3 & 4 Railroad DVD from 1-West Productions™

We have now available:  NORFOLK SOUTHERN 1980s, PART 4 & 5, Ohio Lines™ (1-WEST PRODUCTIONS™), originally filmed in 1986, in the Ohio area.  This DVD is found in our Featured 1-West Productions™ DVDs Section, under Railroad DVD Categories.  We filmed mostly near Bellevue, one of NS’s main terminals at the time, which today is even more important.  A lot of railroad history comes out of Bellevue.  Originally a Nickel Plate, PRR, New York Central, and Wheeling & Lake Erie Railroad town,  in 1986, it was now down to just one:  N&W, or NS actually.  Even though the N&W wasn’t absorbed into the NS merger on paper until the 1990s, NS was starting to show their presence in the area.

You could still see a lot of N&W and SOU equipment on their trains, but the NS scheme was slowly taking over- at least on locomotives.  Freight cars wouldn’t carry the NS logo until the 90s.  One could also see older EMD and GE locomotives still working hard on freights arriving and leaving Bellevue.  Let’s not forget all of the now fallen flag railroads seen on freight cars as well.  This was a time of roads like BN, N&W, SOU, ATSF, SP, CR, Chessie-B&O/C&O/WM, WC, D&H, Guilford, ACL, FEC, B&M, and more.  But even older fallen flags were noticed on freight cars during this time:  PC, NYC, PRR, NH, VGN, NKP, WAB, NP, GN, CB&Q, RDG, LV, EL, L&N, SCL, MKT, ROCK, MLW, etc.

CSX was formed by ’87, but their new paint wasn’t seen on the rails until much later.  They were formed in 1986, with the combining of Chessie, Seaboard System, with L&N, ACL, and SCL.  This was also before the 1990s formed Regional RR- the newer Wheeling & Lake Erie.

Add this DVD to your collection today, sit back, and take a trip back in time, the way things use to look in the 80s on American Railroads.  In all-original color and sound, captions on each scene, a short preview with some narration at the beginning, disc menus,  original video transferred to digital DVD, approx. 60 minutes, and 4:3 format.  Produced by P.Jordan and 1-West Productions.

This is just 1 Part in this Series.  Collect all Parts!  This DVD is found in our Featured 1-West Productions™ DVDs Section, under Railroad DVD Categories.
