Review of Six Motor Alcos on DVD

 4.7 of 5 (3)
This dvd is a must for the ALCO diesel fan. The first show captures the CP 4500's and 4700's working container trains and general freight between Montreal and Detroit. We see behind the scenes, aboard the trains, and trackside views. There is good coverage inside the cabs of these big Alcos on the CPR. There are some meets and a scene exiting the Detroit River tunnel in Windsor, among other things. This show has a lot to offer.

The other program is "Alco's in the Highlands, which takes you to Nova Scotia with spectacular east coast scenery. You will see hard working 6 motor Alcos hauling 100 car trains and are captured trackside as well is in the cab of the trains along the various portions of the Cape Britain, and Centrai Nova Scotia line. Most of the ALCOS are ex CN power.

This is a nice variety of scenes and places which was probably one of the last strongholds of ALCO power in CANADA.

Narration and live train sounds, with quality camera work and equipment.
