Saluda Grade in 1992 | Painter Series 1

This hour-long video shows trains on Saluda Grade in early 1992 through the lens of railfan and model railroader, Ed Painter. Over a period of 5 years, beginning in early 1992 and ending in the winter of 1997, Painter spent a significant amount of time documenting Norfolk Southern trains on the steepest mainline railroad grade in the United States. This is the first time Painter has shared his footage with the world and we’re grateful he chose Delay In Block Productions as his outlet.

Abandoned Railways: Saluda Grade - North America's Steepest Mainline

I'm really proud of how this turned out. Over the last month, I've been working on remastering the "Abandoned Railways" documentary about Saluda Grade. The original version was just missing... Something. Or someone. That person happened to be Ed Painter and his incredible video footage of freight trains on Saluda Grade in the 1990s. This new version features an additional 12 minutes of never-before-seen video of freight and steam on Saluda Grade so you'll definitely want to watch this new version. Remastering what I consider one of my best videos has been a real labor of love for me and I hope you'll be able to see that as you watch it. With that said, thanks for tuning in! -Drayton

Michael Brown snapped this photo on August 20, 2021, at the Tennessee Valley Authority's Gallatin Fossil Plant. The image shows the TVA's H16-66 "Baby" Trainmaster locomotive leaving the plant by truck to its new home in Chattanooga at the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum. The locomotive was the last of its kind built, delivered to the plant in 1958, where it spent 39 years switching coal cars. It was also the last one to ever operate and is the only surviving example in the United States. In the 2010s, the tracks around where the Trainmaster was sitting were removed so it was landlocked. When TVA donated the locomotive last summer, it had to be moved by truck. Thankfully, the locomotive made it safe and sound after a two-day journey through east Tennessee.

2020 was the last time we ever saw an SD40-2 leading a road train on Norfolk Southern. This was train 377 on August 26th at Tyner, Tennessee.

We would like to wish our friend, Cathy Hale, a very happy retirement. Cathy is stepping down as the CEO of the Madison Railroad this week after spending 43 years with the company - virtually the entire existence of the city-owned railroad. We worked with Cathy and her team on producing a documentary for the railroad's 40th Anniversary back in 2018. We took this photo of her with CMPA no. 3, formerly a NASA locomotive, during filming. Cathy is a great lady and her contributions to the Madison Railroad won't be forgotten. In fact, without her and many others in the early days, the Madison Railroad likely would not have survived.

Our latest video takes you inside the former Michigan Central Railroad locomotive and car shops in Jackson, Michigan. These buildings were re-purposed in the 1970s by a local trucking company to store large industrial equipment. Today, the current owner still uses the building for storage and even receives rail service from Norfolk Southern. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/3rrgzDeokPA

30 years ago yesterday was the NS 25th Anniversary Steam Tripleheader featuring 4501, N&W 611 & N&W 1218. At Ooltewah, Tennessee, the train was split with 611 & 1218 continuing south towards Atlanta, while 4501 ran to Cleveland, Tennessee and back to Chattanooga.

Most people don't realize that the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum also operates three freight railroads. In this video, we'll follow the East Chattanooga Belt Railway on a freight run pulled by the museum's Southern Railway 5000 locomotive. Watch it now: https://youtu.be/Yu2Wrt4JlnM

If you’re a fan of the Saluda Grade, this is an absolute must watch. Our friends Delay In Block Productions in cooperation with Mr. Ed Painter have produced an absolutely stunning video! Check it out below. https://youtu.be/weXeQAAbcDM
To the DIB crew. If you ever wanted to film/railfan Montana Rail link. This year is probably the year to do it.
When our museum acquired a rare Shay steam locomotive, we can't help but seek out more history about our and other Shays. Step back in time and take a 45 minute journey by rail. Delay In Block Productions has done a remarkable documentary for the Cass Scenic Railroad in West Virginia, which is one of the top railfan and tourist destinations in the world. Through the use of exclusive digital video, on-board, trackside, and aerial drone footage, you’ll experience the close-up sights and sounds of the original steam-driven Shay locomotives, now refurbished and working today including Shay numbers 5, 11, and the "Big 6." It’s as close to being there as possible! Plus the video includes interesting history about the founder of the Shay, Mr. Ephraim Shay. We encourage you to watch this program: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7E2llhtyWo #shaysteamlocomotive #keepingrailroadhistoryalive
your videos are heaven🥰
Back when Genesee and Wyoming took on a joint venture in Australia and bought Australian National....didn't have time for a new paint job....just doesn't look right 😂 (have since sold and moved on)
Hey delay in block productions why does GC 1800 have a SD70 ace horn equipped?
So what are the odds some URBEX guys will find a C-628 sitting in some back trackage that missed th cutting torch?
Please consider starting your videos with the location name and milepost stenciled on the side of the signal hut protecting the crossing you just arrived at. Thank you.

Video of the Day: Setting what is probably still held as a new land speed record, we see CSX P918-23 running between Atlanta, Georgia and the Kentucky line in late June, 2020. Many thanks to Delay In Block Productions grand pooba and CEO Drayton Blackgrove for assisting in the production of this video. And no thanks to the police department in the city of Englewood, Tennessee......
