Traveling between the Washington D.C. suburb of Lorton, Virginia and Sanford, Florida, the Auto Train offers vacationers a comfortable alternative to a lengthy road trip. In 1994, Pentrex explored the Auto Train’s entire operation from loading to unloading. Watch as vehicles are placed aboard special carriers and see how this long train is assembled.

Once underway, you’ll ride with the crew aboard the lead locomotive and will learn what makes this special train so unique.

By the time the passengers are waking up and breakfasting in the full length domed dining car, the train has crossed into Florida and is sprinting toward Sanford. You’ll see the train being separated and the vehicles unloaded at the end of a fascinating journey. Join Pentrex and discover why passengers return year after year to ride the Auto Train!

    Great, great Dvd. Great behind the scenes on the activities showing what goes on to get these massive trains up and running. Great scenery from the air and the ground. Classic views of Amtrak as well, well with the money.

    Awesome video. Shows a lot of ‘Behind the scenes’ activities that go into getting this train up and rolling. Great footage from both the ground, in the cab, and in the cars of the train. Classic views of Amtrak. Lot’s of classic CSX also. Worth the buy for sure!
