Review of B & O Odyssey Vol 2 DVD

 3.7 of 5 (3)
Linking 13 Great States with the Nation - that was the slogan of the B&O Railroad. Step back to the 1960s to see what made the Baltimore & Ohio one of the all-time great railroads!

The odyssey resumes in Michigan, shortly after B&O had merged with the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway. Motive power and rolling stock of both railroads are frequently seen intermingled. We catch the Cincinnatian and other passenger trains on the C&O route between Detroit and Toledo, including the towers at Wayne Junction, Romulus, and Carleton.

Moving east we visit Connellsville, Pennsylvania and Brunswick, Maryland where freight traffic is heavy. Motive power includes F-units and brand new GP30s. At Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, perhaps the most scenic spot on the B&O, we see both passenger and freight trains making their daily runs. Coal movements are captured at Hancock, West Virginia. Returning westward we enjoy freight action in Pennsylvania and Ohio, then return
