Review of Vignettes of the Baltimore & Ohio Volume 2 DVD

Vignettes of the BALTIMORE AND OHIO - Volume 2 features the B&Os finest steam powering passenger trains on the West End between Grafton, WV and Cumberland, MD., freights over Sand Patch Grade, and coal trains on the old buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh near Punxsutawney, PA seen in rare 1954 footage. Steamers featured include EL-5s, and EM-1s, Big 6s and Q-4s, T-3s and T-4 4-8-2 Mountains. Bill captured not only the head end action, but also the rear-end pushers which were, and still are, common on Sand Patch. Many scenes feature authentic B&O steam audio recorded in the 1950's. Massive, modern steam power thundering through some of the prettiest scenery in the East... preserved by the camera of William P Price...all in...Vignettes of the BALTIMORE AND OHIO - Volume 2. 60 minutes, color with sound, maps, narration, DVD-R format.
