Last weekend Larry Luther and I chased the Southern 2-8-0 No. 630 pulling two Norfolk Southern 21st Century Steam excursions on the CNO&TP line between Lexington, Ky., and Oneida, Tenn.

The trips were sold out and several fans were on hand to chase the photograph the excursions.

Here are some of the highlights of our chase.
