Review of Reading & Northern 425 Blue Mountain Thunder Vol 2 DVD

 4 of 5 (2)
Filmed entirely in High Definition, this DVD continues where Volume 1 left off - this time chronicling the 2010 excursion season. In addition to our usual exhilarating trackside footage, this program also features in-cab footage from multiple cameras on one of the October fall foliage excursions.

Also included is the finale to the 2010 NRHS Convention (held in Scranton, PA), where #425 put on a spectacular show for convention goers. This excursion covered a large portion of the R&N system, with a unique routing from Duryea to Jim Thorpe, and then on to Port Clinton.

As an added bonus, this disc has footage of #425 pulling excursions on the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway in Jim Thorpe, PA without any diesel assistance.

The annual United Way Excursion in May is also covered, in addition to all 3 fall foliage trips in October.

This DVD includes:

May 15th - Tunkhannock to Jim Thorpe
June 26th - Duryea to Port Clinton (Endless Mountain Rails NRHS Conventio
