Review of Trains of the Bessemer & Lake Erie DVD

 4 of 5 (1)
See exciting train action along the railway of the Bessemer & Lake Erie Railroad. The scenic route of the B&LE travels from their shipping port on Lake Erie at Conneaut, Ohio south to Greenville, Pennsylvania and then onto the steel mills near Pittsburgh. See B&LE unit trains of iron ore, coal and limestone. Plus yard switching, general freights, locals and transfers. Vintage Bessemer F-units are seen working on the Western Allegheny Coal Branch. The B&LE's fascinating diesel power consists of SD9's, SD18's, SD38's, SD38-2's, F7's, SW15's and SD40T-3's. Plus, there's also a segment on the Bessemer's Pittsburgh area connecting line of the Union Railroad.

Footage era is early 1990's and 2002.
