Here is the seventh video previewing the proposed Steam Encounters in the USA vol. 1.

You just never know what you're going to see. Last video, it was Santa Fe 2-10-4s on the Pennsy at Sandusky, Ohio. Now it's leased Atlantic Coast Line E-units rumbling upgrade on the Norfolk & Western at Blue Ridge, Virginia!

In our seventh video (above) our photographer catches a B&O "Big Six" blasting out of Willard, Ohio plus action on the Norfolk & Western at Blue Ridge, Virginia.
