Southern steam locomotive trips planned for spring


NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Norfolk Southern is again partnering with the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum and the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society to host steam locomotive excursion trips in 2014.

The Norfolk, Va.-based railroad operator says there are spring trips scheduled in seven states from April through July.

The Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum is the largest operating historical excursion railroad in the Southeast. It was founded in 1961 in Chattanooga.

The Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society was formed in 1972 with the goal of saving Nickel Plate Road steam locomotive 765 from rusting away in a city park.
