Hitch a ride aboard Amtrak’s Cardinal after a very heavy snowfall. The journey picks up at first light east of Maysville, Kentucky, and concludes with the stop in Clifton Forge, West Virginia, after traveling along the Ohio River, and later the famous New River Gorge. It’s a rare treat to be on-board during the winter and on a crystal clear day. An added bonus are steam locomotive excursions on this same route through the New River region. Included are scenes of C&O 614 in the winter of 1985, and scenes of 2765, plus Nickel Plate 765 and Pere Marquette 1225, and Milwaukee Road 4-8-4 #261. The unique, and best selling, America by Rail series features specially composed music and award winning videography. The America by Rail series has sold more than 200,000 copies!

  1. Zac

    Such a great program following the Cardinal through West Virginia and flashbacks to New River Excursions, the 1991 NRHS convention and the 614 hauling coal trains. This is a must watch program.

  2. T.A.R.

    What a great movie this is. You start your journey early in the morning east of Maysville, KY and concludes with you stopping in Clifton Forge. You travel along the Ohio River and the famous River Gorge. See steam engines excursions along the same routes. See trains like the C&O 614, the nickel plated 765 and more. Also listen to specially composed music made for this film. 5 stars and a running time of 60 minutes.

  3. Chase

    This is a great DVD and must be seen by winter railroading fans. Great footage of the New River Gorge trips and C&O 614 hauling CSX coal trains when diesels were froze up.

  4. Ricky

    For Those of you who didn’t know, the Riding on Amtrak footage was shot by Les Jarrett, While Greg Scholl shot lots of flashback steam shots between Huntington & Hinton, WV Through the New River Gorge.
