Streamliners on Parade in Spencer, NC - p2
In May of 2014, the North Carolina Transportation Museum gathered together 26 classic locomotives from around the United States for a four-day spectacular called "Streamliners at Spencer". Enjoy a parade of color and motion as F-units, E-units, ALCOs, and one famous steam locomotive congregate at the museum grounds at this historic event.
TrainMasters TV's crew shot ten hours of footage with two cameras during the event, and the result is this exclusive three-part documentary made just for railfans.
In part two, we visit the museum's locomotive wash crew as they hose down the first F-unit built, FT #103. We profile two important locomotives: Wabash #1189, the last F-7 built by GMD in Canada, and Doyle McCormack's Nickel Plate #190, destined to become the last operable PA-1 on the planet. The day ends with an evening photo shoot.
