Follow Nickel Plate Berkshire 759 from Hagerstown, Md toward Roanoke on Norfolk and Western's Shenandoah Valley Line as it pulled a freight with many run-by, servicing at Shenandoah and action filled pacing sequences on April 24, 1971.
Then, on May 1, 1971, chase the 759 east from Roanoke as she pulled the final run of N&W's "Pocahontas" at the request of N&W. On that day Amtrak began running most of America's passenger trains but did not continue the "Pocahontas" so this was the final run for the train.
En-route, the 759 climbed the famous Blue Ridge grade and was caught at many locations with a great pacing scene in eastern Virginia.
