    Did she make it up without needing the diseasel's help? Sounded like it? I must wonder if the added weight of that diesel was a factor in her slipping.

    What is the nearest station to this viewpoint?

    A very, VERY cool video! This is what the younger generations have missed, from days of active revenue steam.

    A station? This is a branch that runs from downtown Knoxville out to where the Holston and Tennessee river meet, its ex Southern railway tracks owned by the KXHR who in turn is owned by the G&O Railway......look up Three Rivers Rambler.

    Is the diesel set up as a DPU or similar? It didn't look like anyone was home.
