Eastern Canada Regionals 2007 DVD

This program shows many of the trains and operations on four regional railroads in eastern Ontario and western Quebec – The Ottawa Valley Railway, Quebec Gatineau, Montreal, Maine, and Atlantic, and last but not least, Ontario Northland, in the fall of 2007. The first three of these were spun-off by the Canadian Pacific in the mid 1990s. Ontario Northland has always been an independent regional railroad and was built and owned by the Province of Ontario from the beginning. With its remote services and friendly employees, the nearly 700 mile long ONR is arguably the most fascinating regional Railroad in North America. “Eastern Canada Regionals 2007” is 106 minutes long.  The DVD on this program has the option of being watched with or without narration.

BNSF Red River Valley Subdivision DVD

The former Burlington Route’s Fort Worth and Denver Railway line between Amarillo and Wichita Falls used to be a lightly used secondary main line. Today this heavy duty line known as the Red River Valley Subdivision is part of BNSF’s main line between Denver and Dallas-Fort Worth via Amarillo. This line is a roller coaster as it crosses the Texas plains while paralleling the upper Red River Valley through northern Texas and the Texas Panhandle. In the spring of 2009 the Red River Valley sub was hosting around twenty or more trains a day, including many coal trains with distributed power fore and aft and hot intermodal trains between the West Coast and Dallas-Fort Worth. This program shows the trains and operations for over 24 hours on BNSF’s Red River Valley Sub between Wichita Falls and Childress, in May of 2009. “BNSF’s Red River Valley Subdivision” is 63 minutes long and sells for $30.95 plus $5 for S&H.  This DVD has the option of being watched with or without narration.

CSX on Sand Mountain in Northern Alabama DVD

CSX’s climb up Sand Mountain as it crosses the Appalachian Mountains in northern Alabama on CSX’s S&NA North subdivision is one of only a handful of manned pusher districts left in the Eastern U. S. This program shows over twenty-four hours of action in November of 2011 on CSX’s S&NA North subdivision on and around Sand Mountain, which begins at Cullman, Alabama, fifty-two miles north of Birmingham. CSX’s S&NA North sub between Nashville and Birmingham was the busiest part of the Cincinnati to New Orleans main line of the Louisville and Nashville, and today is part of CSX’s busiest north-south traffic lane between the Midwest and Southeast. The one point one percent climb for southbounds up Sand Mountain was double tracked a decade ago and a manned pusher station was then added to assist heavy southbounds up the hill. As part of what CSX calls their Southeast Corridor, the freight train count on this line has more than tripled in the past fifty years as CSX’s other Midwest to Southeast traffic lanes are now at capacity.  This DVD can be watched with or without narration.

NS Trains on the Rathole in 2011 DVD

One of the most storied and best known sections of railroad in this country is the second district of the CNO&TP subsidiary of Norfolk Southern between Danville, Kentucky and Oakdale, Tennessee, better known as the Rathole, for the tight, smoke filled tunnels that once existed on this line. This program shows over twenty-four hours of awesome action on Norfolk Southern’s Rathole on the Cumberland Plateau, just north of the Tennessee-Kentucky border in November of 2011. Business is again growing on this busy up and down line that still challenges the modern power of today, and the variety of that power and traffic is amazing with many intermodal, mixed carload, auto, and unit trains clogging the alternating single and two track main line of the Rathole.  2 disk set.  1 hour and 45 minutes in length.  This DVD has the option of being watched with or without narrtion.

CSX Blue Ridge Subdivision DVD

The Clinchfield Railroad, now part of the far flung CSX system, which runs through the Appalachian, Valley and Ridge, and Blue Ridge geological provinces of Kentucky, Virginia, Tennessee, and North Carolina rather than around them, is considered to be one of the best engineered rail lines in this country and certainly one of the most spectacular in the Eastern half of the U. S. CSX’s Blue Ridge Subdivision, the southern half of the former Clinchfield, extends from the former headquarters of the Clinchfield at Erwin, Tennessee, to Spartanburg, South Carolina, a distance of 137 miles. Half of that distance is spent ascending and then descending the Blue Ridge. This video shows portions of four days and one night along CSX’s Blue Ridge Subdivision between Erwin and Sevier on both sides of the Blue Ridge including the famed “loops”, in November of 2011. Once a bridge route for Florida perishables into the Midwest and a route for locally originated coal to get to power plants in the Southeast, today this heavily railfanned line with some of the best scenery in the East is a corridor for coal from mines in Kentucky and West Virginia to power plants in the Southeast. The Blue Ridge sub is also CSX’s testing ground for distributed power or radio controlled slave unit pushers as all unit trains over 75 cars utilize distributed power, the only part of CSX where DPU has replaced manned pushers as of the fall of 2011.  Length = 1 hour and 45 minutes.  This DVD has the option of being watched with or without narration.

UP's Central Corridor in Eastern Iowa DVD

“UP’s Central Corridor in Eastern Iowa” shows over 24 hours of action on UP’s Clinton Subdivision both sides of Belle Plaine, Iowa in April of 2012. Part of UP’s Central Corridor between Chicago and Ogden, this former Chicago and North Western main line hums with activity in spite of the downturn in traffic due to the recent recession, the warm winter, and UP’s penchant for running longer trains. UP recently added centralized traffic control to this line along with double crossovers about every ten miles. Wayside signals were also added, doing away with the North Western’s left hand current of traffic running. Belle Plaine is 111 miles west of Clinton and 86 miles east of Boone. In contrast to most of the former North Western main across Iowa, the line east of Belle Plaine has several restrictive cures and grades as it heads into the Iowa River Valley at Belle Plaine. “UP’s Central Corridor in Eastern Iowa” is a two disk set and is 1 hour and 47 minutes in length.  This DVD has the option of being watched with or without narration.

The Transcon in Northeast Missouri DVD

If you want to see the greatest show in freight railroading in this country, head to the BNSF main line between Chicago and Los Angeles known as the Transcon. In northeast Missouri around Ethyl, the former Santa Fe, Chicago to Kansas City portion of the Transcon, known in past years as the Airline and Speedway, encounters rough terrain that necessitated many cuts and fills. As trains surmount the hogbacks between the river valleys there, they encounter grades up to eight tenths of a percent and curvature that limits trains to between forty-five and fifty-five miles an hour for many miles and even slower speeds on the grades. Several wooden bridges giving overhead views of trains have brought railfans to this scenic part of northeast Missouri for decades. This program shows over twenty-four hours of awesome action on BNSF’s Marceline Subdivision, part of the BNSF Transcon, in northeast Missouri in April of 2012. And Union Pacific trains between Los Angeles and Chicago use this line also, a condition of the Burlington Northern – Santa Fe merger. “The Transcon in Northeast Missouri” is a two disk set and is 2 hours and 20 minutes in length.  This DVD has the option of being watched with or without narration.
