Review of Rails Through the Hudson Highlands DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
We begin our run in Ossining, heading north to Poughkeepsie, pausing at many intermediate points along the way. Some locations visited are Croton North, Peekskill, Cold Spring and Roa Hook. FL9's in Metro-North's tasteful red, blue and silver scheme abound. Several Metro-North trains are even powered by ConnDOT New Haven painted FL9's. Amtrak's FL9's are seen in charge of numerous trains and of course the Amtrak Turboliner is a great addition to the mix.A number of Conrail freights with B23-7's providing the muscle put in appearances. Conrail also provides a treat for us on the opposite side of the Hudson with several northbound movements, including a hopper train featuring run through Norfolk Southern units on the River Line. Mix in some Rohr turbos and MNCR SPV2000's and you have the recipe for a very entertaining program.
