Steve Neff of Neff Video Productions, and his Hi-Definition cameras, have captured Railroading by the Norfolk Southern Railway in the state of Ohio.
Join us for a tour of the Norfolk-Southern Dayton District.
The Dayton District is a railroad line owned and operated by the Norfolk Southern Railway in the state of Ohio. The line runs from Columbus, southwest to Cincinnati, along former Pennsylvania Railroad and New York Central Railroad lines. Its east end is at or near the Columbus District, Sandusky District, and West Virginia Secondary; its south end is near Bond Hill, where it meets CSX Transportation's Cincinnati Terminal Subdivision and the Indiana and Ohio Railway's Midland Subdivision. Along the way, it junctions the New Castle Subdivision at Evendale.
This video will cover the portion of the line between Middletown and London Ohio. This program was shot between April of 2008 and February of 2009. During most of 2008 this line saw on average, 15 trains per 24 hour period, not including extras and specials. Towards the end of 2008, the recession began to take its toll on the railroad business of the Dayton District.
The General Motors Assembly Plant in Moraine (Dayton) Ohio was closed for good in December of 2008. As a result, 5 trains were abolished due to this plant's closing.
Locations covered in this video will be Middletown, Miamisburg, Moraine, Fairborn, Enon, Snyderville, Springfield, Brook Siding, Plattsburg and London.
