Tennessee Valley Railroad teamed up with Norfolk Southern to bring the 1904 steam locomotive to several different cities in the south. The last steam engine to operate in a regular service in the southern railway was in 1953. Norfolk Southern started the 21st Century Steam Program, which brings steam trains to town so people can see what a steam engine looks like. Photo taken in Black Mountain, NC with Canon 5D Mark III, 24-105 lens, and a tripod.
