CP River Line south of Winona, MN DVD

This program shows the trains and operations for over twenty-four hours on the historic, former Milwaukee Road main line now owned by Canadian Pacific along the Mississippi River railroad east but geographically south of Winona, Minnesota in May of 2011. Once the double track main line of the Milwaukee Road and the route of the Hiawathas, this line fell on hard times in the 1970s. Rescued by the CP owned Soo Line, this line today, known as CP’s River Subdivision and part of their Chicago to Twin cities main, is in excellent condition and carries more trains today than anytime since at least World War II, thanks to increasing numbers of unit trains of agricultural products, fertilizer, coal, and coke from the northern plains and from Canada. “CP River Line south of Winona, MN” is 81 minutes in length and sells for $32.95 plus $5.00 for shipping and handling.  This DVD has the option of being watched with or without narration.

NS around Horseshoe Curve DVD

What railfan has not heard of Horseshoe Curve. Located six miles west of Altoona in central Pennsylvania, Horseshoe Curve is just one part of what Trains Magazine once called “the busiest mountain railroad in the world”, the 37 miles of three track main line over the mountain, the former Pennsylvania Railroad’s crossing of the Allegheny Mountains and the Eastern Continental Divide. Norfolk Southern’s line over this mountain today may not be the steepest grade in the country, or even the busiest any more, but this is big time railroading and even more tonnage squeals around Horseshoe Curve today than when it was Conrail’s or the Pennsylvania’s main line across Pennsylvania. Horseshoe Curve and its environs are still one of the seven wonders of the railroad world, and one of the pilgrimages all railfans must take at least once in their lifetime. This program shows all the trains for 24 hours west of Cresson on the more accessible west slope which is still quite a challenge for the long trains that NS likes to run over the mountain, and trains shot at Altoona, the top of the hill at Tunnel Hill and Gallitzin, and at the Curve itself in August of 2008. “NS around Horseshoe Curve” is a two DVD, two tape set and is 2 hours, 53 minutes in length. The DVD version of this program has menus and chapters and the ability to be watched with or without narration.
