Find a place that's easy to get to, where a concentrated number of trains are guaranteed to roll by in a short time span, and you've just located a railroading "hot spot." Pentrex camera crews traveled the eastern half of the extensive Conrail system, searching out the best places for traffic volume, accessibility, and the camaraderie that's shared among the railfans who favor these popular sites. The result is a fantastic portfolio of these sixteen great eastern hot spots:
CP Five and CP Potter, New Jersey; Bear Mountain, Selkirk Yard, State Line Tunnel, Syracuse, Lyons, Buffalo, and Binghamton, New York; Allentown, Reading, Rockville Bridge, Horse Shoe Curve, Conpit Jct., and Rochester Tower, Pennsylvania; and Palmer, Massachusetts.
Other railroads are spotted at these sites as well as Conrail, including New York, Susquehanna & Western; Central Vermont; CP Rail; and Amtrak. Among the wide variety of locomotives spotted are LMS and GATX lease units, Canadian National power, Amtrak GP40-TC, and the rare General Electric C32-8 (Conrail bought the only ten units of this model ever built).
Informative narration identifies all the trains by their symbols and gives you insights into the special characteristics that make each hot spot so exciting to watch. The beautiful photography and intense railroading action will keep you spellbound!DVD Special Feature:
