NS Roanoke to Norfolk Main DVD

Between Abilene and Burkeville, just west of the crew change point of Crewe in south-central Virginia, all Norfolk Southern trains bound for Norfolk run on the same single-track line.   Crewe is midway between Roanoke and Norfolk and this section of track is part of the original Norfolk and Western main line. West of Abilene, loaded coal trains take the former Virginian line between Roanoke and Abilene while other trains take the former N&W main to Roanoke.   This line between Crewe and Abilene hosts some of the heaviest trains on this continent – export coal trains bound for Norfolk Southern’s Pier 6 at Lamberts Point in Norfolk. Besides coal, this line sees an increasing amount of intermodal traffic headed to Norfolk. This program shows over 24 hours of action between Crewe and Abilene in August of 2008. “NS Roanoke to Norfolk Main” is 68 minutes in length.  The DVD of this program 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.

CP Binghamton to Scranton DVD

The former Delaware and Hudson, now Canadian Pacific, line between Binghamton, New York and Scranton, Pennsylvania that contains the two largest reinforced concrete railroad viaducts in the world over Tunkhannock and Martin’s Creeks, was originally part of the Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western’s main line between northern New Jersey and Buffalo. The center portion of this line, the Clarks Summit-Hallstead cutoff that contains the massive concrete viaducts, two-thirds of a mile long Nicholson Tunnel, and many deep cuts, was built as a low-grade super railroad with no grade crossings by the DL&W between 1912 and 1915. That this line is still in use is something of a miracle as it has had several close calls with abandonment and five owners since the Erie – Lackawanna merger in 1960. Today, thanks to complex trackage and haulage rights agreements between CP and Norfolk Southern, the former Lackawanna and EL line between Binghamton and Scranton is still part of the CP system and is the busiest line on the former Delaware and Hudson system. “CP Binghamton to Scranton” shows all the trains for three days and one night on CP’s Sunbury Subdivision between Binghamton and Scranton in August of 2008. “CP Binghamton to Scranton” is 69 minutes in length.  The DVD version of this program has chapters and menus and the option to be watched with or without narration.

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.
