The Hudson Division is one of the most scenic and interesting sections of Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor. Running north/south from Penn Station in New York City to Albany-Rensselaer, the Hudson Division follows the course of the Hudson River and offers beautiful vistas, charming old railway stations, and the special character of the river itself. However, it’s not just the scenic landscapes that attract railfans to this area. In 1992, when Pentrex documented the line with two video releases, the Hudson Division was FL-9 country. We’ll take you aboard one of these classic diesels and also treat you to a cab ride on a Turbo Train. Get ready for an exciting tour of the Hudson Division! Included on this combo DVD are:

Along the Hudson Division.
Join us in the cab and trackside from Penn Station, NYC north to Albany-Rensselaer. The line is home to both Metro North’s and Amtrak’s fleet of Electro-Motive FL-9 diesel-electric/electrics. These unique locomotives are the highlight of our tour, but we’ll also see Amtrak Turbos, Metro North MU cars, and Conrail freights. See Amtrak’s Westside line from the cab as the train snakes out of cavernous Penn Station. Cross over the newly rebuilt Spuyten Duyvil Bridge, and ride along the shore in this exciting, beautiful journey.

Amtrak’s Turbo Trains Cab Ride.
Climb aboard an Amtrak Turbo Train for a high-speed run south along the Hudson Division. The ride is as smooth as it is fast and the scenery is spectacular. You’ll see Conrail freights flash past and meet other Amtrak trains on their northbound journeys. Once in Metro North territory, you’ll see Metro trains – classic FL-9s and MU cars – busily rushing New York commuters off to the City. Nearing NYC, the line diverges onto Amtrak’s Westside track. We cross over the bridge at Spuyten Duyvil and end our Turbo Train adventure at Penn Station.

    Recently got this program. Plenty of cab ride footage, and a lot of stuff not around today. Nice seeing the FL9s at work, and a few cameos by Conrail. Enjoy this program a lot. Great quality video, and awesome sound.

  2. T.A.R.

    Great film about the Hudson Division. This is the most scenic and interesting line of Amtrak’s Northeast corridor. See Penn Station the NYC and Albany to Rensselaer. Follow the Hudson river and other beautiful vista’s. See “along the Hudson Division” and Amtrak’s turbo trains cab ride. Great at high speeds, ending the turbo ride at Penn Station. 90 minutes long.

    Learned a lot about something I had not seen before. This is a all time favorite Pentrex video. Great shots and scenes, interesting facts and plenty of meets and ground footage. I would suggest to anyone railfan.
