Review of Amtraks Northeast Corridor Cab Ride DVD

 4.5 of 5 (10)
Washington, D.C. to Philadelphia
If you ve ever wondered what it would be like to step back to the early 1990s to experience a cab ride on one of Amtrak'sfastest trains, this is your golden opportunity! Pentrex takes you into the cab of an AEM7 for a high-speed ride at the head of Metroliner Train 110 from Washington D.C. to Philadelphia along the electrified, heavily trafficked south end of Amtrak'sNortheast Corridor.

The big picture windows of locomotive number 911 give you a clear view of what it'slike to meet trains at full throttle. With both trains doing 125 mph, the closing speeds are a thrilling 250 mph! Amtrak'sconstant maintenance and its manicured roadbed result in a smooth ride for the AEM7. You ll be amazed as the Metroliner rolls through a high-speed turnout at almost 70 mph.

Produced with Amtrak'scooperation in 1992, this video was released originally in VHS as part of a 3-volume tour of Amtrak'spride and joy, the Northeast Corridor. Now all the exciteme
