SECOND STAGE OF SOUTHERN RAILWAY EXPRESS TRACK LAUNCHED Posted on 01 September 2011. Construction work on the Second Stage of upgrading the Southern Railway Express Track gets underway. The Government's intention is to operate trains at a speed of 100 kilometres per hour on the Colombo-Matara Southern Coastal Rail Track, after its modernization. The Indian Government is extending the necessary assistance for the Project. Under the first, the track from Galle to Matara which is 43 kilometres, was modernized. Under the Second Stage the rail track from Galle to Kalutara was to be modernized. But taking into consideration the difficulties encountered by the public, the Second Stage will be implemented from Gall only up to Induruwa. Accordingly Railways Planning Director Vijaya Samarasinghe said that trains on the southern rail track will operate from Colombo only up to Alutgama. The Sri Lanka Transport Board will be operating a special service from Alutgama to Galle for the convenience of the public.
Charles W. "Wick" Moorman, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Norfolk Southern Corp., has been named 2011 Railroader of the Year by railroad industry trade journal Railway Age. "I am honored by this recognition," said Moorman. "It reflects on the entire Norfolk Southern team - talented, dedicated, and committed to safety - who make our company a success. They are the very best in the business, and I am proud to be one of them."
Two westbounds leaving Saint John and crossing through the Acamac Backland Rd. The first train features HLCX 911 on the headend with a great sounding horn. The second I made a mistake with the unit HLCX 917 in the title. I'm pretty sure it's 911.
September 2011 will mark the return of steam to Norfolk Southern rails as Norfolk Southern Corporation and Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum launch a limited schedule of steam locomotive passenger excursions Labor Day weekend. The excursion program, "21st Century Steam," will operate two trains each day Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 3 and 4, powered by recently restored Southern Railway Locomotive 630. Launch of the excursion program coincides with TVRM's Railfest commemorating the museum's 50th anniversary.
The Tennessean was a named passenger train jointly-operated by the Norfolk and Western Railway (N&W) and the Southern Railway (SR). Inaugurated on May 17, 1941, its route ran from Washington, DC to Lynchburg, Virginia on the SR, then on to Bristol, Tennessee on the N&W, terminating at Memphis Union Station via the SR. The St. Louis Southwestern Railway inaugurated a new passenger train, the Morning Star from Memphis to Dallas, specifically to provide close connections with the Tennessean at Memphis. Intended to replace the Memphis Special as the preeminent carrier on the Washington--Memphis run, one of its critical duties was the transportation of mail for the Railway Mail Service division of the Post Office Department. The train's almost immediate success was further bolstered by a sharp rise in passenger traffic during World War II. The Tennessean carried a Bristol-Nashville sleeping car, a Chattanooga-Memphis sleeper, and a New York-Memphis sleeper. The heavyweight Pullman sleeping cars were painted silver to help them blend in with the train's stainless-steel, streamlined baggage cars, dining cars, coaches, and observation cars. Following World War II, streamlined sleeping cars replaced the heavyweight sleepers on the Tennessean. The amenities provided on the Tennessean were gradually curtailed as Southern Railway attempted to reduce operating losses. By the early 1960s, the train carried only coaches and a single Pullman sleeper, in addition to the railway post ...
Vintage Southern Railway Film from the 1950's
We were on location at the Monticello Railway Museum in Monticello, Illinois, for Railroad Weekend 2010. This year saw the return to steam of Southern Railway 2-8-0 #401. We shot around five hours of raw footage of this locomotive, and plan to shoot two more restored Southern consolidations next year for a DVD to be titled "Southern Steam Returns." Keep an eye out for it on our E-Bay page at shop.ebay.com

Lionel 6-31713 Crescent Limited Set PS-4 Southern Railway TMCC In 1929, the Southern Railway gave its prestigious New York to New Orleans train a dignified make-over. Two-tone green Pullman cars, lettered in gold, perfectly matched a stable of Virginia green locomotives that hauled the Crescent Limited into history. The all-new Lionel locomotive provides an accurate scale-sized model of the elegant lines of a Southern PS-4 Pacific type. The authentic color schemes on both the locomotive and the cars are taken from actual Southern Railway painting and lettering diagrams for the Crescent Limited. A matching Heavyweight 2-Pack featuring two additional sleepers and a StationSounds Heavyweight Diner are also available separately. The StationSounds Heavyweight Diner includes customized recordings such as dining reservation calls, arrival/departure announcements and even the "clickety-clack" of the train rolling down the track.

This video shows an NS local crew getting ready for their days work at Spartanburg's Hayne Yard. Watch as the local crew starts up their 2 Southern engines, a GP30 and B30-7A1. Then they head off into the yard to pick up their train. A few shots of some of the cars in the yard are included. Then, the next shot shows the local freight running by the Amtrak station headed back to Hayne Yard after finishing their assigned work.
Five former Southern four-axle units were working hard to get train 171 started again from Beaumont Jct and up the grade towards Magnolia St in Spartanburg. Back in the late 80's this was my favorite train to catch with the older power putting on a show dragging the heavy tonnage train towards Hayne Yard. Many times this train would get stopped for higher priority trains at Beaumont, the junction with the NS Atlanta-Linwood main line, on the way back from Columbia, SC. This train still used a caboose back then, with a Southern bay window cab being on the rear this day.
The Heartland Corridor is a rail freight route connecting the busy Virginia ports and the Midwest. In one of the biggest railroad engineering projects in the past century -- a feat that took three years to complete and is scheduled to open Sept. 9 -- Norfolk Southern modified 28 tunnels to accommodate double-stack containers. The new gateway is 250 miles shorter and saves a day or more of transit time, making it the shortest, fastest double-stack route between the East Coast and the Midwest. It benefits freight customers and doubles Norfolk Southern's capacity to handle the growth in international intermodal shipments. It also provides communities along the corridor with greater access to world markets, reducing highway congestion, fuel use, and emissions, and improving public safety. The Heartland Corridor is a public-private partnership among Norfolk Southern and several federal and state entities. Together, they are delivering the economic and environmental benefits of enhanced rail infrastructure -- and creating a competitive advantage for America.
The Bluebell Railway has been running steam trains on a line in rural Sussex for fifty years. This is how it looked in the early days. For more on the Bluebell Railway visit www.bluebell-railway.co.uk The music is from Suite No1 for brass band by Gustav Holst and is taken from Beulah 1PD82 visit www.eavb.co.uk The film is now safely preserved by the South East of England Film Archive. Visit www.brighton.ac.uk View all A60Stock's railway videos at www.youtube.com Flim Crusty writes on his blog at filmcrusty.blogspot.com "Much has been achieved over the fifty years, but there is one aspect of the Bluebell Railway that few have appreciated. As well as preserving steam trains they have preserved the operation and atmosphere of the old Southern Railway. The Southern ran a tight ship, money was never needlessly expended and staff were kept motivated to work to the highest standards by a very small management team. Likewise Bluebell has always been careful with money and volunteers work to the very highest standards. An old Southern Railway friend, alas no longer with us, once remarked that having sat in the C&W mess room it reminded him of his days on the Southern. The subsequent ride in a 100 seater completed the experience for him. I think the profligate and top heavy railway system we have in Britain today could learn at lot from Bluebell."
Another selection of snippets from the Southern Railway archives, with the Western Section to the fore. This being the former territory of the London & South West Railway, the largest constituent company of the Southern which had it's headquarters at Waterloo, the film is dominated by ex-LSWR types though there is one notable and extremely unusual exception. 1) 00:00 M7 Class 0-4-4T No.30, Nine Elms c1930. 2) 00:09 M7 Class 0-4-4T No.127 up on blocks, Nine Elms c1930 3) 00:15 General view of the Nine Elms. 4) 00:19 A real gem. I had no idea that film of any of the former Plymouth, Devonport and South Western Junction Railway locomotives acquired by the Southern with the absorption of that line at the grouping existed, but here is the unique ex-PD&SWJR 0-6-0T No.756 "ASHarris" at work a long way from Cornwall on shed pilot duties at Nine Elms. Acquired new by the engineer of the line, the legendary Colonel HF Stephens in 1908 at the same time as as a duo of 0-6-2Ts (Lord St. Levan and Earl of Mt. Edgecumbe), the little loco worked on and around the Callington branch until 1929 when she entered into a peripatetic state, being tried (unsuccessfully) on the Wenford branch, and for shunting duties just about everywhere (Winchester, Eastleigh, Stewarts Lane, Fratton, Bournemouth, Brighton, Tonbridge, Folkestone and Dover). Her only prolonged stay was from 1931 to 1939 as Nine Elms shed pilot. Surviving long enough to enter British Railways ownership as 30756 (number never ...

By far one of my fav shots i took of my fellow modelrailroader Bob Southern units pulling a coal drag. You can see the long hood of my GP35 waiting on the siding to let the Coal Drag go by. Hope you enjoy.
March 5, 2010, we find the Vermont Railway "Slurry Train" at North Bennington,VT with 33 loads to deliver to the Pan Am Southern at Hoosick Jct., NY. At the Jct, we find the PAS train waiting on them in this coordinated effort to forward slurry to the paper mills in Maine. The VTR will pull west on the ex Boston & Maine tracks and into a siding. There they will cut away from their train and run to the west end of the siding at Eagle Bridge, NY. The PAS train will also pull into the same siding behind the VTR train. Once in, it will cut away from their train and couple to the rear of the VTR train. The VTR units will run out the west end of the siding and then back east on the main track. But today they will have to wait for EB MOAY before making that move. Once on the east end, they will couple onto the rear of what was the PAS train and pull it back to Hoosick Jct. and north on their railroad toward Rutland, VT. The PAS train will run back east to East Deerfield yard in in Mass before the cars are run to Maine. Well, that should pretty much explain what's going on here. It has become a Friday ritual since this is the only day these trains run and many fans head out to watch "New England Slurry" on the move. Return trip shows VTR at Hoosick Jct and the PAS at Hoosick Falls and Petersburgh Jct. ENJOY! Tim Wakeman

This is the fourth and final video in a number of video's including the Southern Railway TOC. This is the final series of programs where I have been showing the three main 3rd rail operating TOC's. The first was Southeastern, the second was SouthWest Trains and now it's Southern. Part 1: The Brighton Mainline, Part 2: Coastway Sevices (East and West and Part 3: London Metro Services. This video features Southern's class 377/4's and 377/3's. The electrostar class 377 fleet is the mainstay of Southern's services operating all over the network on all routes. Here we see the mainline fleet operating on services to/from Brighton and Littlehampton/Southampton/Portsmouth. Also the class 377/3's also share the Portsmouth/Southampton services. **PLEASE NOTE** I am now at University, therefore I have little time to fully complete the video's and filming. I'm sorry, but until the foreseeable future, the London Metro Services video is on hold, until such time I have the time to go out filming. ***IF THERE IS SUFFICIENT INTEREST, I AM WILLING TO RELEASE A DVD FEATURING ALL OF MY VIDEOS FROM THESE PAST 3 SERIES. THE PREVIOUS SERIES WILL BE UPGRADE IN TO HIGHER QUALITY. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF THERE'S INTEREST***
Just uploaded video from the vhs version of "Cinders in the Summer", a movie produced by the Delaware Valley Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society. This clip features #4501 on an excursion in 1991. The description of the movie from the back of the vhs box: "Perhaps the "grand dame" of today's excursion engines, ex-Southern Railway 2-8-2 #4501 (Baldwin, 1911) was a mainstay of the Southern's ambitious steam program in the mid-1960's. Follow the beautiful green and gold Mikado on an outing between Spencer and Winston-Salem, NC on a run for the North Carolina Transportation Museum." Again, this is not my footage, but is footage from the NRHS vhs that I've had. The video quality/sound quality isn't that great at times, but hey, that's how vhs movies get when they get older. Enjoy anyway!!

The plow train is really working now! After one of the SD9's kept throwing a ground relay, the lead motor had to go at it alone, plowing through 10-12 foot snow drifts. Here a train composed of an ex MILW Russel wedge plow, ex SP SD9, light ex MILW SD9 (DIC) works to open up the Dakota Souther Railway. Some of the bigger cuts take two or more tries to get through them, but they are shoved aside eventually.
During the winter of 2009/2010, the Dakota Southern Railway had to run a plow train from Chamberlin SD east to get a empty coal train that the railroad was storing. To puntch through the drifts, the railroad called upon it's ex MILW Russel wedge plow, and two if it's ex SD9's, one of them ex SP, one a light ex MILW unit. Here the train works it's way out of the Chamberlin yard passing some of the DSRC's other equipment including covered hoppers, and ALCO S2, and an ex MILW passenger car. After gettign out onto the main, the plow gets tested out with a couple of small drifts. Here it takes the time to open and close it's wings to make sure everything is working before it gets to the big drifts.

Biscuit Tins. Biscuit Barrels. Charlies. Clockworks. Coffee Pots. Frankensteins. Ugly Duckings. Bulleid's Q1 class of austerity 0-6-0s attracted more nicknames, mostly uncomplimentary, than any other class of locomotive built by the Southern Railway, and quite possibly by any railway, period. Their ungainly appearance stemmed from the weight and material saving innovations employed by Bulleid in their design, the class being introduced at the height of WW2.

A collection of clips depicting former United States Army Transportation Corps S100 Class 0-6-0T locomotives, better known in the UK as the Southern Railway "USA Class". Traversing the roadway Southampton Docks, 1962. Shunting at Southampton Docks, 1962. No.30072 at Guildford Shed c1963. No.30064 at Southampton Central on a railtour, 25/03/1967. No.30064 on the Fawley Branch during the same tour, 25/03/1967. The Southern Railway purchased 15 of these locomotives (which had hardly been used and were lying around awaiting disposal) after the Second World War for use at Southampton Docks where their short wheelbase and ample power were a great advantage. Fourteen entered traffic, one being retained for spares. Steam heating, vacuum ejectors, sliding cab windows, additional lamp irons and new cylinder drain cocks had to be added for them to operate on British metals. More modifications became necessary once the locomotives started to enter traffic, including large roof-top ventilators, British-style regulators (as built they had US-style pull-out ones), three rectangular cab-front lookout windows, extended coal bunkers, separate steam and vacuum brake controls and wooden tip-up seats. This meant that it took until November 1947 for the entire class to be ready for work. Although they were excellent performers, their austerity construction meant that they deteriorated rapidly. Their steel fireboxes rusted and fatigued quickly, and this came to a head in 1951 when several had ...
