Norfolk Southern's Funnel east of Knoxville Blu-Ray

This program shows all the trains for over thirty hours of action in April of 2015 on Norfolk Southern’s Bristol Line immediately east of Knoxville, Tennessee. Where we videotaped is a sort of funnel as trains from two other former Southern Railway routes join together for the run into Knoxville where NS has a large hump classification yard. This historic antebellum line between Knoxville and Bristol was constructed by the East Tennessee and Virginia. It was one of only two east-west rail lines joining the Confederacy together and later was on the main stem of the Tennessee Division of the Southern Railway System. Today this line is in Norfolk Southern’s Central Division and is an integral part of their emerging Crescent Corridor between the Northeast and the Mississippi River gateways of Memphis and New Orleans. This critical section of NS’s Bristol Line east of Knoxville sees a neat mix of manifests, coal, and intermodal trains. This DVD is 49 minutes in length and can be watched with or without narration.
