Review of Yankee Clipper Cab Ride DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
A "Head End" ride on an Amtrak AEM-7 electric engine from Penn Station, New York City to New Haven, CT over the former New York, New Haven, and Hartford line. We depart from Penn Station and pass through the East River Tunnels to Queens, NY. We pass "Harold" tower (operated by the L.L.R.R.), cross the Hell Gate Bridge while viewing the New York skyline, pass over the Pelham Bay Bridge and continue on to "Shell" tower (New Rochelle, N.Y.). We will pass all the Metro North commuter stations, stopping at Stamford and Bridgeport, CT and continue on to New Haven. Many other Amtrak, Conrail, and Metro North trains are seen along the way. Narration referring to speed, signal indication, track designation, stations, cities, towers and other points of interest as well as radio transmissions of trains, tower operators, and train dispatchers, highlight the entire trip. 110 Minutes - Color - Sound
