The Edaville Collection * Massachusetts Maine Attraction * Edaville Revisited *
MASSACHUSETTS' MAINE ATTRACTION is the only definitive documentary on Edaville ever produced. Through extremely rare archive film footage, you'll learn the history of the Maine two-footers and observe regular-service trains on the Sandy River and Bridgton & Harrison Railroads. Passengar and freight activities, and even winter scenes, are included. The program then describes the evolution of Edaville, from its planning and construction as a cranberry-hauling freight line to a full-fledged theme park. You'll ride the train and view the railroad from both onboard and trackside perspectives, and see coverage of special railfan events, including night activities.EDAVILLE REVISITED describes the sale and movement of most of the Edaville equipment to the new Maine Narrow Gauge Museum in Portland, and the short-lived 1997 revival of Edaville itself. The program includes beautifully-photographed scenes taken during the legendary Railfan Weekend in October 1991, when 2-4-4T 7 was correctly lettered for the Bridgton & Harrison Railroad for the first time in 50 years! The little engine pulled a special photo freight through spectacular fall colours. Coverage of the final 1991 Holiday Spectacular at Edaville is then shown, followed by the equipment move to Portland and the 1997 Edaville Cranberry Festival, complete with superb helicopter views of the little trains in action. A tour of the Portland museum featuring trackside, onboard, and in-cab views, along with some unusual night video sequences and a colourful fireworks display, completes the program.by Mark 1 Video Productions * 120 mins * colour * narrated

Norfolk Southern's Chicago Line, Vol. 2: ELKHART TO TOLDEO
No other mainline into Chicago from the east boasts as much rail traffic or variety as that of Norfolk Southern's Chicago Line. This high-density double track mainline sees a great deal of moves everyday, from unit oil and ethanol moves to hot intermodals to general freights and everything in between. In this volume, we cover both freight and passenger trains from Elkhart, Indiana to Toledo, Ohio.Pooled power is plentiful, and you'll see examples of this from roads like Union Pacific, Canadian National and BNSF. Haulage moves from Canadian Pacific also make appearances. Norfolk Southern's Heritage Power also finds its way into the production, and we'll see several of them on our journey, including the Conrail, Central of Georgia, Penn Central, Southern and many others.Shot in all seasons of the year, traffic will be seen in all kinds of conditions, from warm summer days to the cold, blowing winter snow squalls typical for this region of the Midwest. Endangered signals and code line dating back to predecessor New York Central form great backdrops for trains, at a time when NS is just starting to renew a lot of the lineside signal hardware on the system.From the classic Indiana and Ohio small towns and through the beautiful country settings with many miles of old code line still in place, these locations all combine to typify what this busy line is all about.
