Review of Trains of Algoma Country - Algoma Central Railway DVD

Featuring trains of the scenic Algoma Central Railway whose rail line is located near Lake Superior in the beautiful and rugged forests of Ontario, Canada. Shot between 1992 and 1993, you'll see Algoma Central iron ore trains, general freight / pulpwood trains and the passenger / tourist operations. Locations include: Sault Ste. Marie, Hawk Junction, Wawa, Franz and Michipicoten Harbor. At Sault Ste. Marie you'll see ships and the world famous Soo Locks, ACR and Algoma Steel switchers working the Steelton Yard, and the connecting roads of the Wisconsin Central and CP Rail. Activities on the Canadian Pacific include switchers working the Sault Yard and a three unit Alco powered freight heading east for Sudbury. Plus, as an added feature, there's also a caboose and cab ride on ACR locomotive #185 as it works the line from Hawk Junction to the sintering plant at Wawa and then on to the steep 4% grade down the hill to Michipicoten Harbor.
