Pan Am Southern's Patriot Corridor DVD

“Pan Am Southern’s Patriot Corridor” shows the trains and operations on the historic, former Boston and Main Fitchburg Route main line between Ayer, Massachusetts and Mechanicville, New York, known as Pan Am Southern’s Patriot Corridor in August of 2011. In March of 2009, the Surface Transportation Board approved the Pan Am Railways – Norfolk Southern joint venture to jointly own and operate the Pan Am track west of Ayer, Massachusetts under the name Pan Am Southern. The main line between Ayer and Mechanicville was given the nickname: ”Patriot Corridor”. Three years earlier, Guilford Rail System, the operator of what was then left of the Boston and Maine and Maine Central lines in New England, changed its name to Pan Am Railways. This program shows the trains running in August of 2011 on Pan Am Southern’s Patriot Corridor between Ayer and Mechanicville, New York, where a new intermodal and auto terminal serving Pan Am Southern and the former Delaware and Hudson, now Canadian Pacific, is under construction. This line includes the historic Hoosac Tunnel that gives Pan Am the easiest rail crossing of the Berkshire Mountain range in western Massachusetts. Close to half of Pan Am’s operable main line power has been repainted into Pan Am Railway’s deep blue paint scheme and Pan Am’s eclectic mix of older motive power still draws fans from far and wide. “Pan Am Southern’s Patriot Corridor” is 92 minutes in length.  This DVD has the option of being watched with or without narration.
