The event, which is a partnersip between Norfolk Southern and TVRM to run steam-powered excursions throughout the past allows people to hark back to the past and runs throughout the territory that Norfolk Southern itself serves.
With Norfolk Southern established as one of the USAs elite transport companies, covering 22 states in total, passengers can be sure that they are in the best hands to land the most authentic experience.
The routes will be hosted by two steam locomotives, the SOU 630 and NKP 765 to offer the best experience to passengers.

After a full and successful restoration, the engine ran once again on September 1st 1979 and has since operated on over twelve railroads all over the USA carrying more than 250,000 passengers and covering 50,000 miles.
