    O. Winston Link (1914-2001) was America's greatest photographer of the romance of the steam engine, as documented in his book, Steam, Steel & Stars: America's Last Steam Railroad. His extraordinary images were made at night, using elaborate flash equipment, capturing trains in action on the Norfolk and Western, the last steam railroad line in the U.S., during the 1950s. This video takes a journey with Link, then in his latest Seventies, along the tracks of the N&W, through Virginia and West Virginia, as he recounts the experience of setting up and taking his remarkable photos. He revisits the sites of many of his most famous photos, encountering some of the people who appeared in them, and in the process celebrates a bygone era of rural America.
