The nine-day inaugural trip ended at Richmond, Virginia. Crowds had been friendly, and locomotive 4501 was on its way to a long and continuing career on the Southern Railway. Its successor, Norfolk Southern, continued the program until 1994. In 2011, NS in partnership with the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum has revived the program with a limited schedule of steam locomotive appearances and passenger excursions. “21st Century Steam” highlights milestones in rail history and provides an opportunity for audiences to learn about today’s safe and service-oriented freight railroads. The program features three historic coal-powered steam locomotives: Southern Railway 630 (1904), the first to operate in the program; Southern Railway 4501 (1911); ; and Tennessee Valley Railroad 610 (1952).
