Opens with a brief history of Pennsy Electric engines showing the DD-1, the P-5 (boxcab) and P-5A (streamlined) and explains the circumstances that lead to the development of the GG-1. A wide variety of freight and passenger are shown, almost all on the high speed, four track raceway between Washington and New York: The Congressional, The Senator, The George Washington, The Crescent, The Silver Meteor and many others. Crossing The Great Susquehanna and the Delaware River bridges, the Port Road to Harrisburg, entering and leaving both Washington, D.C. and Penn Stations in New York. Sunnyside Yard where the famous "name" trains were stored and assembled, Wilmington Shops where the GG-1s departed. Even has the famous Tuscan Red GG-1 #4877 in action. Closes with third rail action along the Harlem River on the New York Central and dwells on the New Haven FL-9s arriving and leaving 125th Street station. All color except footage of the P-5s.

Under the Heat is a great video for fans of the Pennsylvania GG1. I actually have two of these DVD's, one for my California residence and one for my Las Vegas condo. I am a model railroader and I have two O Gauge scale GG1's of my own, but I still love to see the real ones in action. I grew up in the Philadelphia area and saw dozens of them pass by during the summer while I was visiting my great grandmother's house in Morrisville, PA. I wish someone would restore one of them to running status!
