Linking 13 Great States with the Nation - that was the slogan of the B&O Railroad. Step back to the 1960s to see what made the Baltimore & Ohio one of the all-time great railroads!

The odyssey resumes in Michigan, shortly after B&O had merged with the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway. Motive power and rolling stock of both railroads are frequently seen intermingled. We catch the Cincinnatian and other passenger trains on the C&O route between Detroit and Toledo, including the towers at Wayne Junction, Romulus, and Carleton.

Moving east we visit Connellsville, Pennsylvania and Brunswick, Maryland where freight traffic is heavy. Motive power includes F-units and brand new GP30s. At Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, perhaps the most scenic spot on the B&O, we see both passenger and freight trains making their daily runs. Coal movements are captured at Hancock, West Virginia. Returning westward we enjoy freight action in Pennsylvania and Ohio, then return to Michigan for lots more passenger action.

Volume 2 of B&O Odyssey, which covers the years 1965 to 1968, is the second in a multi-volume series based on the works of noted railroad photographer Emery Gulash. Collect the whole series!

B&O Odyssey Vol. #2 continues on time wise where Vol. #1 leaves off up to 1968. Much the same as Vol. #1, we see many older diesels, from various locations in B&O territory across the US Northeast. The time frame brings in the C&O merger trains and many of C&O territory trains. Very interesting video that the early diesel and B&O/C&O fans will really enjoy and appreciate. The history value of this video makes it worth having for all railfans to have in their collection. only thing I thought that could have been added was more time to the video, considering the greatness of the history of the B&O. 4 stars is enough.

In part 2, there are multiple visits to B&O territory with great early diesel action throughout the 60s. Which includes 1964 action at Delray Michigan, a trio of 1965 variety at the towns of Romulus Michigan, Toledo Ohio, And Connellsville Pennsylvania which is at the western side of sand patch grade. Plus a short 1966 visit to harpers ferry West Virginia, a 1967 quickie at college Pennsylvania, and the show concludes with a trio of 1968 variety at Plymouth and Wayne Michigan, and concludes the final year�s of the B&O before it was merged with the chessie system in the 70s and 80s at Carleton Michigan.

Very old film shot in the 60's and in some very un-photogenic places. Not a good video in way or fashion. The historical aspect was the only saving grace for this thing, and with that in mind could have actually used more narration.

Additional remarks by Ronnie:
Narration: Could have used more.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: Poor.
DVD Value:: Fair.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
