Split into two shows on two discs, Pentrex takes you on a fascinating journey of railroading operations in Houston and its surrounding areas. The first show, shot in the early 2000's, captures Houston's diverse scenery, great railfanning hotspots, and the typical locomotives commonly found during this period. The second show, shot in the spring of 2014, revisits this favorite railfan area with new, exciting footage.
Along this journey, you'll pay a visit to the Angelina & Neches River, Sabine River & Northern, Moscow, Camden & San Augustine and other great railroads. You'll be there to marvel at a 1944 Baldwin VO 1000 on the Texas Southeastern in Diboll, TX. Plus, you'll even get a glimpse of trains crossing the impressive trestle over the Los Brazos River in Richmond, TX.
To top off an already exciting program, we travel to Palestine, TX for some amazing footage of operations on the Texas State Railroad, including a Black Widow Alco RS2 and a freshly painted and rebuilt 2-8-2 steam engine! Our special coverage also includes powerful consists still painted for their former owners and the changes that occurred in the town of Rosenberg, particularly with its tower.
With great train action, variety and beautiful scenery, you'll be amazed by how much change has taken place in the span of a few years. This is Houston, A Decade of Difference!
