It’s been many years since Roanoke has seen a steam locomotive in action, but that will change in coming weekends as a restored Southern Railroad engine makes several appearances. It will pull a Norfolk Southern excursion from Greensboro to Roanoke this Sunday and some railroad employee excursions out of Roanoke the following weekend. WFIR’s Evan Jones has the story.
