The Thamshavnbanen in Norway have used several types of locomotives during the last years. Just one is still in use. The other ones you now can see in the nearby Orkla museum in LØKKEN VERK. Thank you for watching and see my other videos about hertage railways in Norway and Sweden.
This model railway layout was built by the model train manufacturer NMJ Norsk Modelljernbane. This company is well known for producing Scandinavian model trains, locomotives, passenger coaches and freight cars. The Norwegian railroad display is called “Scandinavian Impressions”. There is the Hønefoss railway station, an important junction between the railway line between Oslo and Bergen in Norway. Some say, it is the famous Randsfjord railroad line. Furthermore, there are the beautiful scenery of Norway and Sweden. More information and a lot of photos are available at http://www.pilentum.de, for free.
For a change, our clip today comes from overseas, from Virginia in the USA, where the only working example of the final US express steam type, the Norfolk & Western Railroad's class J 4-8-4 Northern, worked a series of six excursions on 27-29th May from its birthplace in Roanoke, Va. The N&W, one of the great coal hauliers, kept producing new steam locomotives right into the 1950s when most other class 1 railroads were rapidly converting to diesel, the 611 being the third-last member of the class, emerging in May 1950. Here we see the beautiful streamlined 611 at Villamont and then alongside Route 11 at Elliston. Note that we Brits aren't the only ones to produce idiots who threaten steam action by trespassing on the rails!

Logging lokey (former Port of Grays Harbor #5), a steam engine built by the Porter Company in 1924. Shown here performing basic switching operations in the woods. (Nothing earth shattering. Just turn up the sound and kick back.) These are outtakes from the Golden Rail Video archives. #5 is now awaiting extensive restoration at the world renowned Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad in Washington State.
