Review of Old Main Line Part 3 Harpers Ferry to Hancock Yard WV DVD

 4 of 5 (1)
"The Old Main Line - Part 3"continues this superb series that surveys the oldest railroad in the Western Hemisphere. We videotaped as much of the old right of way as possible. We even climbed down off the roadbed to show you some of the one hundred plus old artifacts still in use by the railroad. Maps from the U.S. Geological Survey help you understand where the rails run.

We worked hard to show you the crossings and signals that make up a portion of the modern CSX Cumberland Sub-Division. This DVD starts at MP 81.5, where the tracks cross the Potomac River at Harpers Ferry, WV and continues to MP 124 at HO Tower near Hancock, MD. There's also a special bonus section covering the track work at Cherry Run, WV; as well as the dismantling and moving Miller Tower to Martinsburg, WV.

You'll see CSX freights, Amtrak's Capital Limited as well as the commuter MARC Trains that make their way out to Martinsburg, WV. We'll take you on a survey of the tracks in this eastern
