Great video Dean!
When I was a kid my dad was a train and history buff.
He used to ride the Powhatan Arrow from Norfolk to Roanoke after WW2.
He said that at night they would go over 100mph and that there was a speedometer under the front seat of the first passenger car.
When I was a kid in the mid sixty's dad put us 3 kids on the last run of the (Steam) Powhatan Arrow from Petersburg To Norfolk where my Grand parents lived.
He said that he wanted us to be able to tell our kids and friends that we were on the last Steam run of the Powhatan Arrow.
I was on the last Steam run of the Powhatan Arrow from Petersburg to Norfolk.
Attached are some more good videos.
