Welcome to the Trainscapes segment! Each week here on Geek Alabama, Trainscapes will feature train content including videos of trains and behind the scenes action of trains and locomotives. Some people have an interest in seeing trains, and we here at Geek Alabama aim to please the train lovers!
In Delay In Block’s first feature-length presentation, we’ll be spending time watching trains on Saluda Grade in the early 1990s through the lens of railfan and model railroader, Ed Painter. Over a period of 7 years, beginning in early 1990 and ending in the winter of 1997, Painter spent a significant amount of time documenting Norfolk Southern trains on the steepest mainline railroad grade in the United States. This is the first time Painter has shared his footage with the world and we’re grateful he chose Delay In Block Productions as his outlet.
