A "Head End" ride on an Amtrak AEM-7 electric engine from Penn Station, New York City to New Haven, CT over the former New York, New Haven, and Hartford line. We depart from Penn Station and pass through the East River Tunnels to Queens, NY. We pass "Harold" tower (operated by the L.L.R.R.), cross the Hell Gate Bridge while viewing the New York skyline, pass over the Pelham Bay Bridge and continue on to "Shell" tower (New Rochelle, N.Y.). We will pass all the Metro North commuter stations, stopping at Stamford and Bridgeport, CT and continue on to New Haven. Many other Amtrak, Conrail, and Metro North trains are seen along the way. Narration referring to speed, signal indication, track designation, stations, cities, towers and other points of interest as well as radio transmissions of trains, tower operators, and train dispatchers, highlight the entire trip. 110 Minutes - Color - Sound

Typical, first rate cab ride from Railroad Video Productions. As with others from the company, there is a camera in front of the train pointed forward, and you get the real time train ride from start to finish, (with only the time it takes to load and unload passengers, at various station stops, edited down to a few seconds). This is like being a passenger in the front of the train with some small talk to describe the scenery. There are no maps. The ride was filmed on a bright, clear day, and some trains are passed going the opposite direction. A very basic video, of one of the most heavily traveled train comuter lines in the USA. I would recommend the DVD, as it recreated being along side the engineer in the front of the train very well. As near to actually being there in the front cab as the typical person is likely to get.

Additional remarks by Bennett:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Excellent Value!
Recommend to others? A "Must Have"!
