Review of Chessie & Seaboard Hall of Fame DVD

 5 of 5 (6)
Have you wondered what ever happened to some of the railroads you grew up with? This presentation could shed some light on those thoughts and at the same time, bring back visions of many things that have vanished from the railroad scene.

The mergers and their strategies are explained with some of the hidden history behind all the big changes in eastern railroading. This feature uses numerous maps and graphics created for this feature to put everything into historic and geographic focus.

This presentation is really two shows brought together into a two hour double-feature.

See the B&O, C&O and Western Maryland in both freight and passenger trains in a time-period that had far more variety in road names, equipment and methods of operation. Don't miss those beautiful B&O passenger trains that proudly carried the nation's capitol dome on their nose.

See a colorful mix of first and second generation diesels through many of their paint scheme phases.
