Josh Turner - Long Black Train

Post by Lehigh Valley Railroad »

If you are a country music fan, you probalay have heard of Josh Turner before, and if your a train buff, your in for a treat!

His music video fetures Tenessesse Valley # 610.

The "Long Black Train" is to repasent Temptaion... and the choice of riding or not.

Hope you get to see it. It is doing well on the charts.

I have seen that video, and enjoy it. What is the passenger equipment, is it Tennessee Valley R.R.Museum,perhaps? Also, where was it shot?

I love the song and the video! As a bigtime Randy Travis fan, this guy is like a blessing for country music IMO.

Oh, just wondering, is that an RDC they've got in that video. Ya know, the part where they are filming the train go by from the ground, and you see a car with a striped end....

I love the song and the video, but Operation Lifesaver was not very happy. They issued this press release asking country music stations to stop showing it, fearing that it would encourage suicides on the tracks.

Yeah, I know, I am over two years late in answering this...but better late than never. I think it IS an RDC because TVRM does have three of them. I saw that video again a few days ago---after not seeing it for a long time--- and I would go for a "yes"answer.
