 4.6 of 5 (5)
4 Hours on 2 Discs!

American history is the story of the railroads. All across the country, millions thrill to our heritage each year as they visit America's excursion railroads and museums. Pentrex traveled to dozens of these popular destinations from New York to California during the early 1990s to highlight the unique features each one has to offer. Whether it's to relive a visit you've made in the past or to preview a spot you'd like to see in the future, you're sure to find much of interest here: train rides in vintage equipment powered by mighty steam locomotives or early diesel engines, tours of railroad yards and shops, museums where reenactments and displays preserve local railroading lore, and the important world of the electric railways. Released originally as four separate VHS videos, Great American Train Rides is now available to you in this value packed 2-disc presentation.
