Travels With John – USA – Riding and Chasing The Jay May 2017

John P Cowan is a huge railfan and former railway employee.

He has asked me to make public the videos he took, and I then edited, of several trips he has made in an effort to capture trains across the World. I called the series “Travels With John”. The title usually indicates the locations.

Unfortunately, some of the initial segments were so over-exposed, I was unable to correct them, but the sound is so fantastic, I had to include them.

“The Norfolk and Western J class was a class of fourteen 4-8-4 streamlined steam locomotives built by the railway’s own Roanoke Shops located in Roanoke, Virginia from 1941 to 1950 and operated by the Norfolk and Western Railway in revenue service until the late 1950s.” – Wikipedia
