Canada's Corridor in Eastern Ontario DVD

This powerful program shows all the action on the busiest rail line in eastern Canada - the Canadian National and Via Rail Corridor between Montreal and Toronto. This line, known in Canada simply as the Corridor and owned by CN, is at least two tracks with CTC throughout and currently hosts twenty Via passenger trains on weekdays along with at least twenty CN freight trains. And these are not just any freight trains. CN is the most efficient railroad in North America and runs some of the longest and heaviest mixed carload and intermodal trains on the planet on this high-speed and superbly engineered 334-mile line between Montreal and Toronto. We caught over twenty-four hours of action in September 2007 on the Corridor around Gananoque in southeast Ontario where the limit for passenger trains with LRC cars is a cool 100 miles an hour.  Length = 78 minutes.  This program in DVD has the option of being watched with or without narration.

CP's Expressway in Eastern Ontario DVD

Canadian Pacific’s main line between Montreal and Toronto is their busiest line for freight traffic in eastern Canada. Just west of Perth, Ontario, CP’s Montreal to Toronto main runs through the southern end of the rocky Canadian Shield. In 1996 CP started new piggyback trains between Montreal and Toronto that they initially named Iron Highway trains. The moniker for these trains was later changed to Expressway trains when new flat cars were received. Thus a fitting name for CP’s Montreal to Toronto main is their Expressway. “CP’s Expressway in Eastern Ontario” shows over 32 hours of continuous action on the most scenic part of CP’s Montreal to Toronto Belleville Sub main west of Perth in October of 2007.  Length = 58 minutes.  The DVD on this program has the option of being watched with or without narration.

UP in Meadow Valley Wash DVD

Meadow Valley Wash, which begins fifty miles north of Las Vegas, is the defining feature of Union Pacific’s historic, 102 year old, Salt Lake Route between Salt Lake City and Los Angeles. This defile, together with adjacent Clover Creek Canyon, was the only reasonable route for a rail line from Salt Lake City to Southern California through the many mountain ranges in southern Nevada. This program shows 28 hours of action in the most rugged part of Meadow Valley Wash, the eastern or geographically northern end of the canyon between Caliente and Lyman Crossing, in June of 2007. Train lengths have increased and UP’s newest high tech diesels get down on their knees on the one and a half per cent grade and eight degree curves in this most picturesque and flood-prone part of Meadow Valley Wash.

UP's I-5 Corridor around Redding, CA DVD

Union Pacific’s spectacular trackage around Redding in Northern California, is part of their so-called I-5 Corridor which stretches from Los Angeles to Seattle. Once part of Southern Pacific’s Shasta Division, the UP main around Redding covers a variety of terrain – the winding and deep Sacramento River Canyon, high bridges, and some high speed running through the foothills south of Redding, for the lumber drags headed to Southern California and the intermodal trains to traverse. This program shows how traffic on UP’s I-5 Corridor is doing since the UP takeover of the SP eleven years ago by showing all the trains for over 30 hours both sides of Redding on UP’s Valley Subdivision in June of 2007. “UP’s I-5 Corridor around Redding, CA” is 62 minutes long.  The DVD on this program has the option of being watched with or without narration.

The Trains of Colorado's Joint Line DVD

Mention the words “Joint Line” and most railfans think of the BNSF – Union Pacific line between Denver and Pueblo. The 120 miles of single and double track between Denver and Pueblo on the edge of the Front Range have the spectacular Rockies as a backdrop and include 18,000-ton coal trains and heavy manifest trains ascending and dropping down grades as steep as one and a half percent. Many trains have distributed power or DPU with radio controlled helpers at one or more points in the train and some even have both DPU and manned helpers on the steep southbound climb out of Denver to Palmer Lake. This program shows nearly 30 hours of ear-splitting action between Larkspur, nine miles north of the summit and beginning of single track at Palmer Lake, and Crews, south of Colorado Springs, where double track begins again, and includes action through the Springs. “The Trains of Colorado’s Joint Line” is two hours and twenty nine minutes long.

KCS Meridian Speedway in 2006 DVD

Few railroads have undergone as many changes in the past dozen years as has the Kansas City Southern. During that time their Meridian to Dallas Line has become part of a major transcontinental corridor, and KCS has acquired full ownership of the largest Mexican Railroad and access to Mexico via Laredo. Today the 316 mile Meridian to Shreveport line known as the Meridian Speedway is poised to become part of the busiest corridor between the Southeast and the Southwest and Norfolk Southern recently paid three hundred million dollars for part ownership of the Speedway. This program documents the growing traffic on the Speedway by showing all of the trains on Kansas City Southern’s Vicksburg Subdivision between Monroe, Louisiana and Vicksburg, Mississippi in October of 2006. “KCS Meridian Speedway in 2006” is 71 minutes in length.     The DVD on this program has the option of being watched with or without narration.

CSX West of Russell Yard DVD

Russell Yard, just west of Ashland, Kentucky on the Ohio River, and 142 miles east of Cincinnati, was the heart of the former Chesapeake and Ohio. The 29 miles between Big Sandy Junction where the Big Sandy Sub diverged from the main line and headed south to the western Kentucky coal fields, and NJ Cabin where the lines to Cincinnati and Columbus divide, is still mostly triple track and was the busiest part of the C&O. Original C&O signal bridges still guide the trains on this heavy-duty section of track. Russell Terminal, the largest yard complex on the C&O system sat in the middle of that section of track. This program shows over 24 hours of heavy duty action in October 2006 between RJ Cabin at the west entrance to Russell Yard and NJ Cabin where the lines to Cincinnati and Columbus divide. This two and three track main isn’t as busy as it was in C&O days, but still handles nearly 30 trains on a good day including locals and Amtrak’s Cardinal.

Flomaton, Alabama - CSX Hot Spot DVD

One of the most fascinating small town junctions on the far flung CSX system is Flomaton in southeast Alabama.  Flomaton is just north of the Florida state line and 58 miles east of Mobile.  In this town of 1600 where CSX still has a small yard, the CSX main line from Birmingham and Montgomery joins the CSX line from Jacksonville and Pensacola.  All trackage here is former Louisville and Nashville.  The CSX main line then continues west to Mobile and on to New Orleans.  This program shows over twenty four hours of action on CSX’s M&M Subdivision between Flomaton and nearby Atmore in October 2006.  It will also show how traffic on this line has rebounded since Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and the Gulf Coast and severed this line west of Mobile for nearly six months.  This program was shot only seven months after through service was restored on this line west of Mobile. 70 minutes.  The DVD on this program has the option of being watched with or without narration.
