the labyrinthine canyons of the Akinback Mountain Range, complete with working cable cars
and water wheels. John‘s own slides are used to magnify the exquisite detail, from snow capped

artifacts that surprised and delighted so many.

over former Maine Central and Boston & Maine routes to Whitefield, NH where the diamond
crossing is still guarded by an operating ball signal.
2305 MS #3967 RETURNS Mark I, 1993 75 Here is multi-camera coverage of Union
Pacific‘s 1993 reenactment of its first steam fan trip. In May 1953, UP 4-6-6-4 3967 pulled an
excursion from Denver to Laramie. Forty years later, #3985 was cosmetically altered to
represent the original engine. It made a ferry run from Cheyenne to Denver, then headed a
Denver-Laramie round trip. Archival footage and interviews round out the program.
2306 MS CLOSE UP: 3985 THE CHALLENGER IN ACTION Mark I,
1990 60 Here‘s a spectacular program featuring Union Pacific‘s 4-6-6-4 #3985 – the world‘s
largest operating steam locomotive – at work on freight and passenger trains between Cheyenne
and Omaha. After a brief history of the Challengers, with color archival footage of various UP
classes, we move on to contemporary action. Pacing, track side, and in-the-cab scenes are
supplemented by Mark I‘s nifty engine-mounted minicams which capture the running gear in
2307 MS PACING THE CHALLENGER Mark I, 1991 60 A companion program to
the last video (#2306), this tape presents a solid hour of pacing sequences of 4-6-6-3 #3985,

lines a very watchable show. The North Shore Line, Chicago Aurora & Elgin, South Shore,
Illinois Central Electric, and Gary Rwys are covered from beginnings to final run, with some
1980s video at the conclusion. Traction fans will get a lot out of this one.
2310 ED VIGNETTES OF THE LEHIGH VALLEY, VOL. 1 Clear Block,
1996 60 The Lehigh Valley Railroad stretched from New York City to the important railroad
gateway of Buffalo, NY. The LV not only provided a vital link to the east for midwestern roads
such as the Nickel Plate and Wabash, but also tapped the rich anthracite coalfields of
Pennsylvania in the process. PA and NY locations visited in this program include Allentown,
Bethlehem, Easton, Lehighton, Van Etten Jct., Rochester Jct., and Niagara Jct. The Lehigh
Valley of the 1970s was renowned for its varied and colorful paint schemes, as well as for the
numerous different models of early diesels it employed. This interesting video was filmed
between 1970 and 1976.
2311 ED CD LEHIGH VALLEY ON PENOBSCOT MOUNTAIN Digital Image Works,
1995 60 This digitally edited tape presents the films of Bob Powell, shot along the Lehigh
Valley Railroad between Bridgeport and Laurel Run, PA, between 1970 and March 31, 1976.
Watch as trains pulled by sets of Alco, EMD and GE road power, often with Alco C628 pushers,
assault the heavy grades over Penobscot Mountain on trackage of the LV and the original Lehigh
and Susquehanna. Locations include White Haven, Frazer Interlocking, Bergers, Crestwood,
Glen Summit, Penobscot, Solomons Gap, and Laurel Run. This is a pretty complete survey of
what was running on these rails during the period of filming, including some D&H moves.
Quality overall is good, limited only by the 70s technology then available.

2315 VP Southern Belle, The Kansas City Southern H. S. 25 The early 1940s Kansas
City Southern promotional film, produced on video by the Kansas City Southern Historical
Society. Mainly aimed at advertising the train by that name, The Southern Belle records a
Louisiana beauty contest of ‗real‘ Southern Belles, swathed in yards of crinolines and velvet and
smiling coyly for the camera. The narration and music are as corny as can be, but will carry you
back to Dixie if you‘re 75 or older. Tossed into the mix are a few feet of film of steam
locomotives pulling freight, just to prove that KCS had some muscle in addition to its sleek
passenger trains and pretty girls.
2316 RH Nevada State Railroad Museum NSRM 35 This museum in Carson City
houses over fifty pieces of railroad equipment from Nevada‘s past. Included in the collection are
seven steam locomotives and several restored coaches and freight cars. The bulk of the
equipment is from the famous Virginia & Truckee Railroad, America‘s richest short line.
2317 MS Steam Over Donner Donner Rails, 1999 54 Re-live 1999‘s hottest train
action as Challenger 3985 and Northern 844 double-head over Donner Pass. Donner Rails
camera crews filmed this event from over forty locations between Sparks, NV and Roseville,
CA. Interviews with the locomotive engineers and crews reveal the real story of what happened
inside Tunnel 41. 54 Minutes, stereo.
2318 FR MS Great Western Railway Goldhill Video, 1996 55 The G.W.R. ran many
popular Expresses, none moreso than the ―Cornish Riviera Express‖, which carried vacationers
to the resorts in Devon and Cornwall. This and other trains were powered by a wide variety of
locomotives. Each engine class bore special names, from the legendary ―City of Truro‖, the first
100 mph steam locomotive, to the ―Castles‖, ―Halls‖, and ―Manors‖. But to this day, the most
popular locomotives of British railroading remain the magnificent ―King‖ Class. Many of these
great locomotives still operate to the delight of railroad enthusiasts from around the world.
2319 FR MS Southern Railway Goldhill Video, 1996 55 The Southern Railway ran
many famous Express trains such as the ―Golden Arrow‖, ―Atlantic Coast Express‖, and
―Bournemouth Belle‖. Their locomotives were equally popular and were noted for their unusual
design features, such as slab-side ―air-smoothed‖ casings. The names of the engines gave them a
romantic air, since many bore names associated with Britain‘s history, like the Knights Of The
Round Table class. As with locomotives from other great British railways, many are lovingly
maintained, as demonstrated on this interesting video.
2320 FR MS British Railways Goldhil Video. 1996 55 When nationalized in 1948, the
four great British railways became British Railways. The new organization inherited a
substantial stock of locomotives, however it was still necessary to replace many worn-out and
obsolete machines before the change-over to diesels could take place. BR developed a range of
―standard‖ locomotives, the first of which, ―Britannia‖, rolled out in 1951. These were the last
of the great British Express steam locomotives. Although they were state-of-the-art, they would
soon be replaced by the more efficient diesels. Nevertheless, they live on with their restored
brethren as reminders of the Golden Age of British railroading.
2321 FR MS London and Northeastern Railway Goldhil Video. 1996 55 The L.N.E.R.
ran some of the most famous trains in the world, and the locomotives which handled them
became railroad legends in their own right. The ―Flying Scotsman‖ was perhaps the most
famous of all and it was powered by the giant engines favored by the railway. The streamlined
―A-4‖ Pacifics developed by Sir Nigel Gresley were incredibly popular and one, the ―Mallard‖,
was the fastest steam locomotive ever, reaching 126 mph. Luckily, many of the best engines
remain in operating condition thanks to the National Railway Museum, and are seen to
advantage in this program.
2322 FR MS London Midland and Scottish Railway Goldhil Video. 1996 55 The
L.M.S. was the largest of Britain‘s railways and served cities from the South Coast to the top of
Scotland. It ran many famous expresses, including the ―Royal Scot‖, the ―Caledonian‖, and the
―Pines Express‖. To haul these trains built some of the most powerful locomotives of all. The
Pacific style engines of the ―Duchess‖, ―Princess Royals‖, ―Jubilees‖ and ―Black‖ Classes were
incredible machines and were very popular with the traveling public. The last steam locomotives
were out of service by 1968, but many of these powerful engines are still enjoyed today on
2323 FR Ireland Questar, 1999 57 IRELAND With her rich railroad heritage, Ireland
offers train buffs a splendid array of traveling options. Your trip will begin in Dublin with an
overview of the efficient transit system that brings visitors and commuters in and out of the city
each day. Then you‘ll leave Dublin behind, riding the mainline down to Cork, Ireland‘s second
largest city; en route you‘ll also get to look around a working mail car. After your eyes drink in
the emerald countryside Dublin and Sligo, you‘ll ride the mainline to Belfast, along which you‘ll
visit a number of quaint and photogenic manual switching stations. Finally, you‘ll sit in the cab
of a diesel powered train to Rosslare. Along the way, the Wicklow Hills drop straight into the
sea and you‘ll pass through tunnels dug into the spectacular, windswept coastline. You‘ll also
ride along the pier in the seaside town of Wexford, and come very close to grazing the nearby
2324 FR Portugal Questar, 1999 56 Portugal has long been a destination for European
tourists seeking the abundant sunshine promised by its temperate southern climate. The railroads
of this fascinating, sun-drenched country carry travelers from its northern mountains to its
southern coastal plains. Rail cars and locomotives of Swedish, American, British and French
design make their winding way past mountain villas and terraced hillside vineyards before
roaming south among Portugal‘s softly rolling plains and valleys. Ride the rails from Lisbon at
the mouth of the River Tagus to Villa Real St. Antonio, Funcheira, Barreiro, Porto, Aveiro and
Mirandela. Fol;low the curves of the Algarve Coast, and browse the hand-painted tile murals
gracing the walls of the line‘s classic rail stations. Roll past shepherds and flocks in the Duoro
Valley. Take some leisurely resfreshment in village cafes. Ride the electric tram along Lisbon‘s
switchback hills. But always feel the warmth of Portugal‘s sun on your face, and the cool breeze
left in the wake of passing trains.
2325 FR Switzerland Questar, 1999 56 Nearly all of Switzerlan‘s Alpine scenery is
accessiblefrom an array of picturesque railway lines. Your own travels will begin when you ride
the busy Saint Gotthard mainline; it takes you through the spectacular Saint Gotthard Pass,
where your train must repeatedly loop and double back to make the steep ascent into the
mountains. You‘ll next ride the famous Glacier Express, which links together the greatest resorts
in all Switzerland. The Appenzeller Line will then immerse you in a variety of tranquil rural
landscapes, and the Gornergrat Bahn will offer you an eye-popping closeup of the Matterhorn.
Your final train journey will then be aboard the opulent Golden Panoramic Express, where you
can sit in the front of the train to best appreciate Switzerland‘s breathtaking mountains and pine
trees as they whisk by. You‘ll also see Zurich‘s rail station and ride aboard one of the nation‘s
few steam-powered trains. These and many other adventures offer a splendid view of
2326 FR China Questar, 1999 54 China‘s economy is booming, and its rail network is
having difficulty keeping up. Though vastly increased, modern diesel and electric locomotive
production is still outpaced by the country‘s growth. The answer: the world‘s largest working
fleet of steam locomotives. Many of these steam workhorses are reconditioned with hundreds of
thousands of miles on their work logs…and some are brand new, built in the one-of-a-kind
locomotive works at Tangshan. Take your pick of modern or classic locomotives and climb
aboard amid the bustle of beautiful Beijing Station. Steam along beneath the looming shadow of
the Great Wall, then throttle past the Forbidden City. Round the curves along the storied banks
of the Yellow River, and climb into the densely forested mountains of Nancha. Cross the
seemingly endless mountains to the lonely steppes of Inner Mongolia. Finally, stray to the very
edges of the boundless and magnificent Gobi Desert – then, check your own mileage – you‘ve
barely scratched the surface of China.
2327 FR France Questar, 1999 57 From the high speed TGV trains that shuttle
between her cities to the steam locomotives that traverse her countrysides, France offers travelers
a wide variety of railroad journeys. Your own adventures will include a train ride whisking you
acroos expansive bridges, and past quaint rural stations on the line from Valence to Grenoble.
You‘ll then board a steam locomotive that leisurely rambles through the splendid pastoral vistas
between Tournon and Lamastre. The electrified line between Perpignan and Le Tour de Carol
then takes you high into the snow-capped mountains of Southern France. Your final train
journey is a thrilling excursion on the centerpiece of the French rail fleet, the TGV, as it rockets
from Le Mans to Paris. You‘ll first tour the inside of the train, then sit next to the driver as you
dart toward Paris at speeds of up to 180 miles an hour. These and many other railroad journeys
offer an exciting and comprehensive look at the pleasures of French train travel.
2328 FR Denmark Questar, 1999 55 DENMARK In a country once famed for its
Vikings and longships, trains are the real kings now, crossing the rugged Scandinavian
countryside with the same determination as their seagoing forebears. Still closely bound to the
sea, most of the main cities in Denmark are built around harbors: Arhus, Esbjerg, and
Frederickshavn on the North Sea, and Copenhagen commanding the strait connecting the North
Sea with the Baltic. The Danish Rail Service links the harbor cities and the interior, revealing a
land of stunning scenery. The long graceful Store Baelt Bridge hovering over miles of cold blue
sea. Windswept tundra filling the horizon in coastal regions. Lush, tree-covered hillsides
seemingly hidden further inland. On one particularly scenic stretch of the Vrads/Burup Line, an
elegantly styled, perfectly preserved steam engine blows streams of white smoke to mingle with
the crowns of majestic pines in an evergreen forest. In a land as beautiful as this, it‘s no wonder
Hans Christian Andersen‘s Little Mermaid wanted legs of her own…how else would she board
the train and see for herself?
2329 HO Hurricane Express Hollywood Movie Greats, 1985 80 Terror stalks the
nation‘s railways in this action-packed John Wayne adventure. In one of his earliest screen roles
(1933), Wayne stars as a young air transport pilot whose father is killed in a mysterious train
wreck, one of a series that has paralyzed the powerful L&R Railroad. When he sets out to find
the reason, his search brings him face to face with the masked Wrecker, a criminal mastermind
who is out to sabotage the railroad.
2330 H Crusade in the Pacific - Guadalcanal/The Aleutians UAV Corp,
1997 53 During the first six months of war in the Pacific, the Japanese conquered hundreds of
thousands of miles in Eastern Asia. By mid 1942 they reached the Southern Islands. Only
Guadalcanal was needed to sever the lifeline to Australia. This tiny island then began the scene
of fierce conflict. To the North, the Aleutian Chain provided the Japanese with stepping stones
toward North America. These barren islands also saw heavy combat as American forces
struggled to throw back the advancing Japanese. Includes rare WW II film clips from Savo
Island, Bougainville, New Georgia Group, Russells, Kula Gulf, Midway, Dutch Harbor, and
2331 H Crusade in Europe 20th Century Fox Television, 1993 60 War Declared:
America joins the fight. Through spectacular newsreel footage and closeup accounts, World
War II comes to life in this award-winning series based on General Dwight D. Eisenhower‘s
personal memoirs. This is the first of a six volume series. PRELUDE TO WAR – From the
ashes of World War I, Naziiism arose and Hitler began his bloody campaign for world
domination. In the spring of 1940, with the German war machine steadily marching across the
battered European continent, and the crippled retreat of the British Army from Dunkirk, America
began to grow uneasy. Dreams of peaceful isolation began to fade and the United States
instituted the first peace-time draft in history. December 7, 1941 – ―A Day That Will Live In
Infamy‖ With one blow the United States was drawn into a devastating war that would change
the nation forever. The revolutionary transformation of America was not achieved overnight. In
the first anxious months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the US gradually adapted itself to the
idea of global war. The strategy: Attack to win. General Eisenhower is appointed head of the
European Theater of Operation and the monumental task of storming the Nazi fortress of Europe
2332 N Target Tornado Weather Channel, 1996 45 Of all weather phenomena,
tornadoes are probably the most fascinating and frightening. For centuries, man has been
mesmerized by the power and strange beauty of these terrifying storms. Tornadic storms can
produce winds up to 300 miles per hour that can rip through a house and leave it flattened in
seconds. Earlier this century, tornadoes killed, on average, over 100 Americans each year. The
famous Tri-State Tornado in 1925 killed 695 people. Over the last few decades, scientific study
of tornadoes has helped cut the death toll in half. Travel with ―Project Vortex‖ – the largest
tornado study in history and the Weather Channel Unit, as scientists search out twisters in
Nebraska and Kansas – the heart of Tornado Alley. Target Tornado tells the fascinating Project
Vortex story, the story of the 1925 Tri-State Tornado, and shows you what was learned from
2333 H Great Ships - The Clippers History Channel, 1996 50 They were as graceful as
clouds, as majestic as cathedrals. But to the men who built and sailed them, the ultimate sailing
ship was designed for just one thing: speed. The great clipper ships of the Nineteenth Century
were masterpieces of the shipbuilder‘s art. Called ―Moonrakers‖ and ―Skyscrapers‖ for their
acres of towering canvas, they were built to thrive in the seas‘ most fearsome gales. This
remarkable program tells the complete story of the clippers, from the revolutionary Anne McKim
to the Champion of the Seas, whose astonishing one-day speed record still stands today. Using
spectacular computer simulations, experts recount the great clipper voyages and rivalries –
including the legendary race between Flying Cloud and Challenge. And dramatic recreations
bring to life the untamed world on board these ―greyhounds of the sea,‖
2334 H Floating Palaces, Vol. 3 A & E 1996 50 The Roaring Twenties marked the
golden age of transatlantic travel. With the income from immigration dwindling, legendary ships
like the Normandie and the Queen Mary were specially designed for the free spenders of the Jazz
Age, and each new ship was bigger, faster, and more exquisitely outfitted than the last. Languish
in a marble bathtub or visit a tailor aboard the Europa as she competes for the transatlantic speed
record. Watch as nation after nation tries to build the world‘s greatest ship, from Italy‘s
spectacular Rex to the German masterpiece Bremen. Through rare film footage and exclusive
interviews, meet the passengers who danced and toasted their way across the ocean and the
colorful entrepreneurs who made their wildest dreams a reality.
2335 A Hindenberg, The History Channel, 1996 50 Like the Titanic before it, the
Hindenburg was the finest craft of its kind – the biggest, the grandest, and the safest airship ever
built. For its inventor, the tenacious Count Ferdinand Zeppelin, it was the culmination of a life‘s
work. For Adolph Hitler, it symbolized a new ear of German national supremacy. The
HINDENBURG examines the creation of this ill-fated wonder, from the tragedy and failure that
plagued Zeppelin‘s early models to the successful worldwide voyages that made him a national
hero. Through exclusive interviews and rare archival footage, you‘ll tour Zeppelin‘s factory,
examine the Hindenburg‘s extraordinary features, including its lightweight aluminum piano, and
learn why hydrogen filled the craft instead of safer helium. You‘ll see views of the interior on its
maiden transatlantic voyage, too.
2336 T Yellowstone Kodak Video Programs, 1986 30 A photographic study of the
world‘s first national park, Wyoming‘s Yellowstone National Park, the grand-daddy of them all.
Explore Yellowstone‘s rock formations, learn about its geyser activity, discover its plant life, its
wildlife, and its unique geology. Come to know the park through a naturalist‘s eyes and words:
This park is the sounds and smells of a walk on a trail. It is an awakening to clean air, water and
wild land. The bison preserved here are a symbol of what parks stand for. To set aside this land
in perpetuity was an audacious idea. Yet it is an idea America gave to the world.
2337 H Inferno at Yellowstone Cinevision, 1989 50 In the drought summer of 1988,
Yellowstone National Park caught fire. A horrified nation watched each night on television, as
millions of acres of magnificent, beautiful conifers were reduced to smoldering ash and charred
stumps. Controversy mounted concerning the management of the park and the ―let it burn‖
policy. Firefighters were called in across the nation; the U.S. Army and the Marines were
deployed; and an appeal for help went to the Canadian government. At its height, the
Yellowstone Fire was so intense it created its own wind. The heat 400 feet in front of the blaze
reached 700º, an inferno of incredible magnitude.
2338 T Yellowstone National Park Videotrip Rand McNally, 1988 45 Filmed before
the devastating fire, this program shows Old Faithful, Mammoth Hot Springs, Inspiration Point,
Roosevelt Lodge, Obsidian Cliffs, Mt. Washburn, and many other scenic attractions. Bubbling
waters and abundant wildlife in glorious evergreen forests make this park a showcase of nature‘s
wonders. Trip planning information included.
2339 N Earthquake NOVA, 1990 60 ―Breezy and cloudy overnight, with a 3.2 quake
near daybreak.‖ Is this the weather report of the furure? Charles Richter, who gave his name to
the earthquake strength scale, said that ―only fools, charlatans, and liars predict earthquakes.‖
Nevertheless, scientists today are undertaking ambitious projects to try to predict seismic
activity. For millennia, humans tried to fathom the periodic shifting and shaking of solid ground.
The theory of plate tectonics, depicting the earth as made up of overlapping, continent-sized
segments was the first to adequately explain the phenomenon. In California, the North American
Plate is slipping past the Pacific Plate – the boundary is the San Andreas Fault. Here, in 1906, a
quake, measuring around 8.0 on the Richter Scale, and the ensuing fire, wrecked the city of San
Francisco. In 1989, the Bay Area Quake registered nearly 10 times weaker, yet was powerful
enough to cause 61 deaths and billions of dollars in damage. Intriguingly, a U.S. Navy
communications experiment showed that the quake was preceded by a burst of low frequency
radio waves. Alan Lindh and his colleagues at the U.S. Geological Survey have set up one of the
largest earthquake experiments in the world on a section of the San Andreas Fault. Will their
data turn up a magic key to prediction?
2340 T Great World Cruise of the QE II, The Doug Jones, 1989 85 Lean back in your

Surfline extends from San Diego to Los Angeles along the beautiful California Coast. Climb
aboard a new GE P32-8BW for a cab ride on Amtrak‘s train at speeds up to 90 mph. You‘ll
witness train meets and see spectacular beach scenes along the fastest piece of track on the West
Coast. Another of Video Rails‘ excellent cab rides.
2343 MR "Introduction to 1"" Scale Railroading, An" Iron Pony Here is a very
entertaining garden railroading video produced by Iron Pony before it was purchased by Riding
Railkits Inc, The program is loaded with informative narrative on the scale models, which we
explore inside and out. These RTR or build-it-yourself kits are an excellent option for the
beginning garden railway modeler. Here we visit several working layouts, with close looks at
the rolling stock and video tours of the layouts, including ―cab rides‖, i.e., footage shot from the
moving trains..We also interview the owners who detail the history of their layouts. Run time
2344 MR Great Model Railroads, Vol. 32 Allen Keller, 1999 60 THE Model Railroad
Club of Union, NJ is a legend in the hobby and has provided 50 years of innovation and
enjoyment for its members and the public. The HO railroad is probably the largest club layout in
the country. When the expansions are finished the layout will be 70 x 140 feet with 500
locomotives. The current HO layout is 40 x 40 feet and is based on railroads that served the
industries and commuters of New Jersey. The main railroad is the Hudson Delaware and Ohio.
It interchanges with the Rahway River Railroad and the Trenton Northern, an electric interurban.
A smaller N scale layout is under construction. Paul Mallory, one of the hobby‘s pioneers,
created the original concept of the club‘s layout in his basement. Paul, a prolific model railroad
author, reminisces about the early days of the hobby and the club..
2345 MR Virginian & Ohio Afton Division Finale Pentrex 2001 76 One of the most
famous model railroads – the Afton Division of Allen McClelland‘s Virginian & Ohio – is now
gone, but before this HO layout was dismantled, Allen invited Pentrex to videotape the last days
of its existence. Using special lenses and real, prototype sound effects we transport you into the
amazing lifelike world of the V&O for an absolutely incredible viewing experience. Railfanning
the line as if it were a real railroad, we travel to scenic locations to catch the action during a
typical day on this Appalachian coal hauler. Heavy trains with rear end helpers slug it out on
mountain grades. A local freight stops to switch a coal mine. Perishable freights, junk freights,
foreign power, and Amtrak are seen from the best ―photo op‖ locales. The V&O operated
realistically, complete with commercial, geographical, and logistical concerns. Allen
McClelland describes how he created this ―beyond the basement‖ approach to model railroading
and takes us on a tour of the road many have never viewed.
2346 TR Magnificent GG-1, The Mark I, 1987 60 Part of Mark I‘s Heritage Series, this
program includes a historical overview of the GG-1, full coverage of GG-1s on passenger and
freight trains in action between Sunnyside Yard and Philadelphia. Many paint schemes are in

Amtrak, NJDOT and restored units. Complete narration in color with some b&w.
2347 CD Into the Allegheny Range, Vol IV, Sand Patch Grade Pentrex,
1996 240 CSX‘s Sand Patch Grade in western Pennsylvania is one of the most popular
railfanning sites in the eastern U.S. Heavy tonnage, high density traffic, and grueling mountain
grades are trademarks of this famous ex-B&O route. In this production, which was taped over a
three year period, you‘ll see a multitude of trains at familiar landmarks as well as the rarely seen
west slope, in all seasons of the year. Many of the locomotives are seen sporting their pre-CSX
paint schemes from predecessor railroads. Visit towers, tunnels, obscure branchlines, and see the
last train to ever run on the old Berlin Subdivision out of Garrett, PA. You‘ll even ride on a
pusher engine shoving an eastbound freight from Connellsville, PA up the west slope to the
summit at Sand Patch. It‘s the ultimate CSX mountain railroading experience. 4 hours, 2-tape
set rents as one unit.
2348 ED VS Memories of the New York, Ontario & Western Mark I, 2002 30 Here is a
nostalgic look at the famous NYO&W from 1946 through the early 1950s. The original footage
was shot on black-and-white 8mm movie film, and while it may not be up to current-day
production standards, it gives a good feel for the railroad at that period. Part I opens with a ferry
ride on a NYC boat, followed by some scenes at Weehawken Terminal. Then we‘ll climb into
F3 503 for a cab ride to Roscoe. After the engine is turned, we ride the cab for the return trip.
Part II features a tour of the line from Weehawken to Liberty, NY, shot onboard the train from an
open-platform observation car. Highlights include a meet with an O&W FT-powered reefer train
and trackside action at Liberty. Part III covers a June 9, 1946 Railroad Enthusiasts‘ excursion to
upstate New York. There are more onboard scenes and some trackside action featuring
handsome O&W 4-8-2s. All three rides include NYC and O&W steam and diesel trains
encountered along the way.

defined the air combat tactics that have endured into the jet age. World War I: The British
Sopwith Camel and German Fokker D-7 face off, piloted by men with a life expectancy of just
17 operational hours. World War II: British Spitfires and Hurricanes took on waves of German
Bombers escorted by Messerschmitt BF-109S in the Battle of Britain. U.S. P-51 Mustangs
encountered the revolutionary jet powered Messerschmitt-262 over Europe, And the Hellcats met
the challenge of protecting the U.S. Pacific Fleet from the vicious assaults of Japanese zeroes.
Korea: The first all-jet air battle pitted MiG-l5s against F-86 Sabres. Vietnam: in the most
sophisticated combat arena to date, the mistaken belief that the dogfight was passé led to painful
American losses that dramatically changed U.S. training doctrine.

2371 FR Gotthard Bahn, The TEE Films 115 2371 The Gotthard Bahn (1986) FR
Paralleling the ancient path of the breathtaking Saint Gotthard alpine pass, a world renowned
standard gauge railway connects the northern centers of Switzerland to the latin localities of
southern Ticino by way of vertiginous loops, spirals and a steep serpentine course over a distance
of 160 kilometers creating a huge variation of height. The Gotthardbahn commences at Arth-
Goldau, where the Sud-Ost railway from Basel and the Zugersee line from Zurich converge at its
station. It then follows the charming outline of Lake Lucerne, prior to assaulting a formidable
line gradient employing ambitious reversing loops and helicoid tunnels, and by way of
spectacular bridges and viaducts. At Goeschenen the famous Saint Gotthard tunnel is entered,
yielding welcome relief from the forbidding northern climate, as Romanesque Ticino is reached.
However this southern half of the Gotthardbahn, amid medieval structures and artifacts, presents
us with even steeper line grades which require four complete helicoid spirals in the descent to the
milder lakes region of Lugano. At Chiasso the Swiss S KB relinquishes its international consists
to Italian motive power, which can be observed side by side with Gotthardbahn thoroughbreds.
This highly acclaimed program follows the entire route of this railway, with emphasis on its
operation and fascinating geographical surroundings. A special stop is made at Erstfeld, where
we visit its famous locomotive depot housing glorious early century 'Krokodil' electrics, and
where we board a modern 12,000 horsepower Re6/6 for a training session. TEE Films, English,

2373 RH HISTORY OF AMERICAN RAILROADS: A WILD AND IMPRACTICAL
SCHEME (1800-1845) Kaw Valley 80 "In 1845 John Stevens obtained a charter from the
New Jersey legislature to build the first steam railroad in America, but he could not get financial
backing. It was dismissed as ""a wild and impractical scheme"". But before long business men
realized trains were faster, cheaper, and could haul more freight than any other type of
transportation. Less than 30 years after John Stevens was turned down, Daniel Webster
proclaimed the railroad towered above all other inventions in that or the preceding age. In four
parts: ONE NATION . . . INDIVISIBLE (1845-1865) By the 1850's railroads were not only
capturing the eyes of businessmen, they were capturing the hearts of the people as well...bright-
colored engines with fancy scrollwork, billowing smoke and hard-driving wheels, mournful
whistles, and memories of trips to friends and relatives. Railroads determined the location of
towns, opened new lands to the west, and were a vital factor in the outcome of the Civil War.
TRANSCONTINENTAL (1865-1880) For years people dreamed of the time when trains would
reach the Pacific Ocean, enabling trade with California and the Orient. The Union Pacific began
building west from Omaha, the Central Pacific east from Sacramento. But there were problems
-- weather, lack of money and labor, mountains, rivers, deserts, and Indians. However, after the
Civil War, money came with land grants, immigrants, former slaves, and Chinese laborers. On
May 10, 1869, at Promontory Summit, Utah, a golden spike joined east and west. THE
GOLDEN AGE (1880-1916) By 1900 five different railroads had reached the Pacific Ocean,
and between the Atlantic and Pacific the land was being invaded by a spider web of rails. For
railroads there was no competition. No industry so dominated the American scene, or so touched
every aspect of American life, as did the railroad during its Golden Age. For railroads it was a
time of major improvements: the telegraph, airbrakes, automatic couplers, standardized time and
track gauge, and bigger and more powerful locomotives. And as George Pullman was improving
passenger comfort with his sleeping and parlor cars, Fred Harvey was changing railroad
restaurants from places of torture to places of pleasure."
2374 RH GOLD RUSH RAILROAD, The Logan Video Services 50 The White Pass

July 29, 1900. Close to a century later it still thunders through the spectacular White Pass -
alongside the Trail of '98, --The route to the Klondike Goldfields. For more than eighty years the
railroad provided year-round service on its 110 mile route. It survived the boom and bust of the
mining economy, two world wars and some forty feet of snow Alaskan winters could dump on
White Pass summit. The constant roar of the steam powered rotary snowplow fleet was a
familiar sound throughout the long winters. Today a summer excursion service carries record
numbers of passengers along the pass. Now, through a wealth of archive film and broadcast

2383 RH WAR TRAINS, VOL. 1 The Civil War Galloping Pictures, 1998 55 "Since
1862, when Abraham Lincoln authorized the formation of the United States Military Railroad,
railroaders and military men have fought side by side. This is the story of how the railroad has
been an indispensable tool in the winning of wars. You'll see the railroads prepare for war in
rare and never before seen archival footage. Arrive in France and watch as the ―Iron Warrior‖, a
Baldwin steam locomotive, is built from the rails up and readied for war. See step-by-step how a
military railroad operates. You'll also find out how the massive 14-inch guns of the United
States Navy's heavy railroad artillery were inspired by battleships and you'll walk with FDR as
he inspects trains assembled for battle. See how a massive rail system was built right up to the
front lines and learn the role of the ""Trench"" engine. Then you'll join forces with the Military
Railway Service, rushing men and munitions to the front lines. Witness first hand the Combat
Strategies that have made the railroad a weapon as important as the tanks and guns it transports
to the fighting front."
2384 RH WAR TRAINS, V. 2, COMBAT STRATEGIES Galloping Pictures,
1998 59 "Combat planning includes subversive warfare, the massive fire power of heavy
railroad artillery and the explosive force of sabotage. You'll be an eyewitness to actual
subversive warfare and see how repeated acts of sabotage are used to delay and destroy the
enemy's reinforcements and supply system. Watch as troops set charges to railroad tracks and
bridges. Go behind German lines and fire heavy railroad artillery. Ride in armored railroad cars
with the security forces protecting supply trains in Vietnam. You'll also witness the effects of
the CIA's secret weapon for railroad destruction known as ""The Mole."" Watch as a train is

2385 RH WAR TRAINS, V. 3 AIR ATTACKS Galloping Pictures, 1998 50 "Through
100 years of railroads at war, no innovation in military transportation surpassed the dominance
and durability of the railways in supporting and supplying all branches of the armed forces. As
the age of aviation progressed, bringing an ever-expanding range of military weaponry, the
railroad became a principal target of attacks by air. You'll experience the thrill of a train running
while under full attack by enemy bombers. Pilot a P-47 while strafing trains and rail lines.
Bomb railroad tunnels, bridges, and rail yards. You'll take aim against enemy aircraft with a
machine gun battalion as troops rush to repair bomb damage to the railroad. You'll also climb
aboard a hospital train to help those wounded during air raids and bombing runs. Discover the
secrets of defense that railroads used to prevent air attacks, including simulated bomb damage,
and find out how railroad bridges were made to ""disappear"" and reappear the next day. Watch
as, time after time, the railroad proves its astounding resilience. ""Air Attacks"" thrusts you into
a tension filled duel of plane against train."
2386 ED SP's Geeps and Cadillacs - Vintage Workhorses Pentrex, 1996 52 "Enjoy the
sights and sounds of 40 year old GP9, SD7, and SD9 diesel locomotives moving freight over
Southern Pacific's central California mainlines and branch lines in the 1990s. Nicknamed
""Geeps"" and ""Cadillacs,"" these engines revolutionized American railroading when they were
introduced by EMD in the 1950s. Their popularity among the railroads was due to their
efficiency, ease of maintenance, and operational flexibility. However, old age and hard work
caught up with the engines during the 1970s and 80s, and the majority of them were retired by
almost all Class 1 railroads. Incredibly, SP was still relying on the venerable workhorses in the
spring of 1994 when Pentrex captured them on video! You'll visit SP's Fresno Line between
Bakersfield and Sacramento to view the endangered diesels in action, watch from trackside as
solid sets of Geeps and Cadillacs work hard along the mainline on the Roseville to Fresno Local,
and catch the Lodi Local as it travels over the Lone Branch out of Gait. Then ride in the cab of
Geep #3742 for a thrilling return trip downgrade to the mainline at Gait. This is a great
opportunity to witness the last stand of classic diesel locomotives in operation in SP's Geeps and
Cadillacs -Vintage Workhorses."

SUBDIVISION Pentrex, 1999 90 "Tracing the eastern banks of the upper Mississippi River
is BNSF's St. Croix Subdivision, a mostly double-tracked route providing access for a nonstop
parade of traffic from LaCrosse, Wisconsin to Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota. Pentrex takes
you across the entire Sub, shooting throughout the seasons to bring you a unique perspective on
this important, busy line. Starting at the Grand Crossing diamond in LaCrosse, where BNSF
crosses Canadian Pacific trackage, we follow intermodal, coal, grain, taconite, manifest, and
other trains along the shores of the Mississippi. Bald Eagles are seen circling overhead, boats
ply the waters, and train whistles echo off the surrounding bluffs. With the variety of trains
comes a great variety of motive power. Two Dash-9s make their maiden voyages in Heritage II
paint schemes; an original GP30 is seen working the local at Bay City; three GP20s head up a
grain train, even BN's ""Pulling for Freedom"" locomotive is spotted — the volume and diversity
is amazing. Whether the summer sun is beating down on the rails or winter's snows are flying
off them, trains and more trains keep on rolling across BNSF's St. Croix Subdivision. Here's a
great opportunity for you to enjoy the action!"

2391 VS ED Northern Railroads: Vermont and Her Neighbors Vermont ETV,
1995 60 In the mid-1800s, train service finally came to northern New England, connecting its
rural communities to the outside world. The advent of the railroads meant enormous change for
the people in these towns. Trains opened up trade, making it easy to take milk, butter, cheese,
turkeys, granite and marble to the far-off markets of New York and Boston. Towns sprang up
around train depots, and new gathering places were created, for now politicians and distant
cousins, news and even gossip traveled by rail. Take a fascinating ride back in time as you
explore the age of steam and the transition to diesel. Lively stories told by railroaders,
townspeople and historians paint a vivid picture of the early days of railroading. Experience the
challenge of rugged mountain lines like the one through New Hampshire's Crawford Notch, and

Gay (the latter from the collection of Ted Xaras) in the 1940‘s. and ‗50's along Pennsylvania
Railroad affiliate roads in New Jersey, the New York & Long Branch and the Pennsylvania-
Reading Seashore Lines. We see scenes that in times past were routine; steam-powered
commuter trains, frequent local freights. eight-car (count 'em) RDC trains. Some scenes are
more unusual, including several E-6s 4-4-2's in service at speed, a CNJ double-ended Baldwin,
and K4's picking up water on the fly at track pans. Taken between the South Amboy bridge over
the Raritan River and Bay Head, and from Philadelphia's 30th Street Station to Ocean City, the

2397 MR GREAT MODEL RAILROADS VOL. 10 Allen Keller Productions,
1992 60 The Cumberland Valley System of Bill and Wayne Reid is undoubtedly the most
famous N scale layout ever built. The Reid brothers have taken a 22x40 foot area and built a
railroad that not only looks fabulous but runs with the reliability of the larger scales. You'll learn
some of their methods for obtaining this level of performance. The CVS is actually a system of
5 railroads-the Western Maryland, the Pennsylvania, the Norfolk & Western, the Reading and
the B&O. Only the WM and the Pennsy are fully modeled, the other roads provide interchange
traffic and operating interest. Bill and Wayne have designed the layout so the scenery dominates
the trains thus creating a feeling of distance. They'll show you tips for tracklaying, rock carving,
and kitbashing stuctures. Bill and Wayne enjoy working on and sharing this layout with others.
The two brothers are prophetic proponents for the ongoing improvements in N scale. The Reids
have modified the layout over the years to improve operation. They've never been afraid to use
new techniques or to rip out completed sections. In the process they've created a Great Model

1993 60 "The Allegheny Midland of Tony Koester is an operations oriented railroad that hauls
coal through Virginia and West Virginia. Although based on the Nickel Plate and the C&O,
Tony refers to his style as prototype freelancing. The HO scale AM has changed era at least five
times. Tony has now settled on 1958 while steam still reigns in the mountains. Elaborately
painted first generation diesels are making inroads. This careful attention to history is evident
throughout the layout because Tony really enjoys historical research. He has succeeded in
making the Allegheny Midland a believable railroad that follows standard prototype operating
rules. An Appalachian railroad needs thousands of trees and lots of tunnels. Tony will show you
how to make these elements quickly and realistically. He will also explain methods of
modifying common plastic kits into one-of-a-kind structures. The Allegheny Midland is a Great
Model Railroad because of the ""Trains of Thought"" that its builder has put into it. Tony, the
former editor of Railroad Model Craftsman, champions an intellectual approach to the
2399 MR GREAT MODEL RAILROADS VOL. 11 Allen Keller Productions,
1992 60 The Virginian & Ohio of W. Allen McClelland needs little introduction to long-time
model railroaders. This world-class HO railroad is always included in the list of legendary
layouts. Careful planning and fidelity to the prototype are two of the reasons for its fame. This
Master Model Railroader has built more than a Great Model Railroad; he has built a following
among fellow modelers because of his innovations - walkaround operation/design, interchange
with other railroads beyond the basement, the good-enough philosophy, and pioneering
command control work. By listening to Allen, you'll learn that challenging the conventional
hobby wisdom of the 1960's was not easy. At times his ideas for prototype design and creating a
railroad that did work by actually traveling between two points were considered revolutionary.
Allen shows you his weathering and car distressing techniques, and a new method for building
open car loads. These techniques stem from his overall philosophy that no facet of the hobby
outshines any other. All aspects of the hobby must blend into a cohesive package. Like a real
railroad, the 31-year-old V&O stays current. New operating ideas, track arrangements, and time
periods are part of the railroad's continuing growth.
2400 MR GREAT MODEL RAILROADS, VOL. 50 Allen Keller Productions,
2005 60 "The Argentine Industrial District Railway of Chuck Hitchcock is his answer to the
question ""Is it possible to outgrow a famous 30 year old layout?"" His former Santa Fe
Argentine Division was famous as one of the first layouts to be operated in a prototype manner.
Yet Chuck and his operators knew there had to be more. The Industrial District began as an idea
ten years ago. Since he and his friends really enjoyed switching industries, he decided a layout
could be built without a mainline. And so Chuck again became a pioneer in operation. The 54 x
26 foot HO railroad represents a Santa Fe line around Kansas City in 1963. All trains are
operated within yard limits, and work without a dispatcher. This fiftieth volume in the series is a
return to Chuck's work that Allen first recorded 22 years earlier. In a way the work of preserving
Great Model Railroads has come full circle. Many of the layouts in the series no longer exist
except on video. Chuck has found that this new HO railroad has renewed his interest in the
hobby, and made upkeep of the layout easier as he ages. He will show you how to lay track
without spikes or nails, add signs to urban buildings, and create switch lists from waybills. The
Argentine Industrial District Railway is a Great Model Railroad because Chuck has never been
afraid to change things while seeking innovative solutions."
