Review of Along the New River - The CSX New River Sub DVD

 4 of 5 (3)
CSX coal trains on the New River Sub, deep in West Virginia. We start our visit at Hinton, then follow the tracks through Prince, with it's Art Deco depot, over the mountain to Thurmond, and along the gorge to Montgomery. You'll see the trains far below from the overlooks, and up close and personal from trackside. We visit the big bridges at Cunard and Hawks Nest, and catch the Gauley shifter with it's caboose. UP makes an appearance, together with Amtrak's Cardinal, a number of lease units and brand new SD70ACe's. R.J. Corman now operates the Loup Creek branch from Thurmond, and we catch bright red geeps in the highly scenic valley. Narration On/Off feature!
