Don’t have a lot of time to get out there and railfan? Railcams have been around for a while but recently the quality of a few of them has been improving greatly. One cam in particular is standing out about the rest. The Norfolk Southern main line through Roanoke, Va has a lot of traffic and you can see it all in high quality color!
The location of the cam is about a block away from the Virginia Museum of Transportation. You will see anything from long mixed manifest freights, long coal drags, light engine movements, and you might even catch a red caboose at the end of a train!
