Norfolk Southern's Atlanta to Macon Main DVD

This video shows the trains and operations at many points on Norfolk Southern's strategic Atlanta South district between Atlanta and Macon in southern Georgia.  This line serves as NS's gateway between south Georgia and Florida and the rest of their system.  The Atlanta South District, part of their Georgia Division, stretches for 94 miles between Inman Yard in Atlanta and Brosnan Yard in Macon.  Today this line is a heavy-duty main line with thick ballast, heavy rail, and two mile long controlled sidings about every eleven miles.  The number of trains on this critical section of track has doubled in the past 30 years.  This busy line through the rolling and often wooded countryside south of Atlanta is handling the most trains and tonnage of its one hundred and twenty year history.  This video shows the trains and operations for over 24 hours on Norfolk Southern's Atlanta South District in October of 2002.  113 minutes.

This video shows the traffic and operations at many locations on Norfolk Southern's Pocahontas District in West Virginia.  Often referred to as "The Pokey", the Pocahontas District extends from Bluefield, West Virginia, to Williamson, a distance of 99 miles.  This line is arguably the most scenic and accessible of all the heavy duty mountain main lines in the East.  It has a busy helper grade, countless sharp curves along the Elkhorn and Tug Fork Rivers, color position light signals, abandoned coaling towers, and nineteen tunnels, most of which are easily accessible from local roads.  This line was the heart of the former Norfolk and Western and reminds us of the Fraser and Thomson River Canyons and Cajon Pass in the West in that you never run out of places to take pictures.  This video shows two days and a night of awesome action on "The Pokey" in April of 2003.  161 minutes.

Montana Rail Link on Mullan Pass DVD

Since its inception in 1987, Montana Rail Link, which handles BNSF Railway trains between Laurel, Montana and Spokane, along with its own trains, has always been one of the largest and most interesting of the new crop of regional railroads. And today it is the favorite Regional in a Trains Magazine poll. Twenty-two years since its inception fans still flock to the MRL to see the venerable SD40’s still used in helper duty and the four year old SD70ACes in spectacular mountain and forest scenery.   And thanks to the growth in grain and coal traffic provided by BNSF, Montana Rail Link today handles more tonnage than predecessors Burlington Northern or Northern Pacific ever ran through the Rockies on this track. This program shows two and half days of action on the former Northern Pacific and Burlington Northern, now Montana Rail Link main line on both sides of spectacular Mullan Pass west of Helena in September of 2009.  “Montana Rail Link on Mullan Pass” is 86 minutes in length and sells for $32.95 plus $5 for S&H. This DVD has the option of being watched with or without narration.
