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.
