NEW YORK CENTRAL Vols 1 & 2

NEW YORK CENTRAL Vols 1 & 2

14.00

The Big Four Route-Double Feature-Volume 1 60 minutes

Donald J. Krofta takes you back to the period of January - June, 1955 when NYC was still running steam on its BIG FOUR Ohio Division. With much of the action around Bellefontaine, Ohio, you'll see Hudsons, Mohawks, Mikados, and an occasional diesel or Niagara on passenger and freight trains. Don is a dramatic shooter and gives you great detail views most others omit. His films were well known by NYC fans and we're pleased to offer them to you. Mostly shot in classic B&W, there are many original sounds recorded at the time by Jim Hawk.

Volume 2 47 minutes

Donald J. Krofta takes you back to the period of July - December, 1955 when NYC was still running steam on its BIG FOUR Ohio Division. By February of 1956, it would all end and diesels would be ensconced forever. With Niagaras and P&LE Berkshires appearing more and more, this tape takes you back to the final 6 months of steam on the Ohio division, plus it has Don's 1955 trip to St. Louis on which he encountered more NYC steam in Indiana, Illinois, and other steam on the ICRR and C&IM. Mainly classic B&W with many authentic sounds by Jim Hawk.

THE WASATCH GRADE: Union Pacific's Evanston Sub

THE WASATCH GRADE: Union Pacific's Evanston Sub

22.00

Standing guard over the Utah-Wyoming border the massive cliffs of the Wasatch Mountains divide the rolling grasslands to the east from the salt deserts to the west. The immense features once echoed the bark of the largest steam locomotives on earth. Today they reverberate with the drumming of mighty diesels climbing the Wasatch grade.

In this program we will explore the Union Pacific's Evanston Subdivision between Ogden, Utah and Green River, Wyoming. This is the classic grade over the Wasatch Mountains where the Big Boy's once roamed. Highlights include scenic Weber and Echo Canyons, monster 200 car manifests cresting the summit at Wahsatch, and cleaning up a derailment at Peru that wiped out both main tracks. As a bonus, see historic footage of Big Boy 4014's return to the Wasatch grade while heading to Cheyenne for restoration.

Through the Oregon Cascades Part 2: The High Country

Through the Oregon Cascades Part 2: The High Country

21.00

In the high country of central Oregon, Union Pacific trains sprint along the east side of the Cascade Mountains on a route originally run by the Southern Pacific. In Part 2 of this exciting series, we follow the Cascade Subdivision for 108 miles between Cascade Summit and Klamath Falls. With easy grades and gentle curves, this is a racetrack with speeds of up to 60mph for freight and 80mph for passengers.

Heavy manifest trains head south with lumber from the Pacific Northwest. Doublestacks, grain, crude oil trains, the Gilchrist Local, and Amtrak's Coast Starlight head back and forth through the beautiful countryside. Adding to the interesting mix of traffic, BNSF runs via trackage rights between Chemult and Klamath Falls.

In addition to the steady flow of trains, witness a Jordan Spreader at work pushing back the snow banks between winter storms. See brand new Tier 4 GEVOS making their first revenue runs over the Cascade Line, plus Canadian Pacific, Amtrak heritage power, and a GE center cab switcher at work on the Klamath Northern. Shot in all seasons over an eight year period between 2008 and 2016, the amazing journey continues through the Oregon Cascades!
