Order BOTH Flying the Norfolk Southern and Thoroughbreds Across the Alleghenies and save! More than 5 hours of great Fall Color over the Alleghenies!
Flying the Norfolk Southern
Best seat in the house, above the action! Never see a telephone pole in your way again. This all drone show couples action from the air with sounds from the ground, so it's the best of both worlds. There's no narration, but on-screen graphics provide train symbols, information and locations on the line. The sound is turn-it-up good.
We'll see Horseshoe Curve, Gallitzin, Tyrone, South Fork and more. And the backdrop to all of this action is the most beautiful fall color. At Horseshoe Curve, the view from the air mimics the old postcards of the curve. Up in the air, or in the air, but level with the trains, or across a valley – you really get to place the trains in the scenery and see the geography that dictated the route.
1 hour 48 minutes. Color, Chapter Markers, No Narration, On-Screen Graphics.
Presented in Standard Definition, Widescreen. Available in High Definition Blu-ray.
Thoroughbreds Across the Alleghenies
Since the Pennsylvania Railroad opened its route through the Allegheny Mountains, the line has remained one of North America's busiest mountain passes. Ownership of the line has changed hands several times, but the drama of heavy trains climbing the grade and the engineering feat known as Horseshoe Curve keeps train enthusiasts and photographers coming back!
We visited the region during October in 2016 and 2019 and recorded the action at all the spots including Tyrone, Brickyard, The Curve, Benny, Lilly, Portage, South Fork and more! A decent variety of motive power and trains, along with beautiful autumn colors! Informative narration will not dominate the live audio, but will give you the story about the trains that you see!
