CSX Garrett Sub across Northern Indiana DVD

“CSX Garrett Sub across Northern Indiana” shows the trains and operations for over twenty-four hours on CSX’s busy Garrett Subdivision between Milford Junction and Walkerton in northern Indiana in April of 2010. This program shows how this former Baltimore and Ohio line has fared since the Conrail breakup and how traffic has begun to recover from what some are calling the “great recession” that began over two years ago. There have many changes in operations since our last look at this busy line across northern Indiana in 2001 as CSX in the interim has become a much more efficient and profitable railroad. Pooled power abounds on both of these busy lines across northern Indiana. “CSX Garrett Sub across Northern Indiana” is two hours and eleven minutes in length and is a two DVD set.  This DVD has the option of being watched with or without narration.

CN's Yellowhead - Easiest Pass through the Rockies DVD

At 3718 feet above sea level, the summit of Yellowhead Pass on Canadian National’s transcontinental main line west of Jasper, Alberta, is the lowest and easiest pass through the Rocky Mountains traversed by a transcontinental railroad in either the United States or Canada. No other crossing of the Great Divide even comes close. Yet the highest peaks in the Canadian Rockies stand guard on both sides of the pass. No wonder all three transcontinental railroads in Canada wanted to build through Yellowhead and two of them did. The ascending grade on both sides of the pass is only four tenths of a percent. The tonnage through Yellowhead has quadrupled in the past forty years and CN runs some of the longest freight trains in North America through Yellowhead Pass. And CN’s line through Yellowhead Pass is located in the beautiful Jasper National Park and Mt. Robson Provincial Park. Via’s Canadian and Skeena pass through Yellowhead as does the seasonal Rocky Mountaineer tourist train. This program shows all the trains for over twenty-four hours on both sides of Yellowhead Pass in September of 2010. “CN's Yellowhead – Easiest Pass through the Rockies” is one hour and fifty-two minutes long.  This DVD has the option of being watched with or without narration.
