This material was primarily shot in 1999 to 2001 with other scenes from 1991 to 1993. The various chapters bring portions of Ohio with the diamond crossings of Deshler ("Crossroads of the B&O") and Fostoria ("The Iron Triangle). The program then moves east to the Cumberland Subdivision from Point of Rocks west to Cumberland, MD and then more gripping action on the famous Sand Patch grade.
This is all color, digitally enhanced material, shot in many seasons. It brings you a lot of great action with helpers, long trains and road power from a colorful era on CSX. Some of the locomotive types have since been retired such as the C30-7s. Many maps have been made for this video to give the viewer a full presentation.
See the last days of the old Color-Position signals in many locations and the installation of the newer signals. This is a 1 hour and 42 minute video bringing lots of great railroading. An additional section has a preview of the "Mountain Grades of the B&O" video.
