Description

Linking 13 Great States with the Nation – that was the slogan of the B&O Railroad. Step back to the 1950s and ’60s to see what made the Baltimore & Ohio one of the all-time great railroads! This two DVD set is based on the works of noted railroad photographer Emery Gulash. in Volume 1 the action takes place in Ohio and Pennsylvania, starting in 1954 when steam was king. Articulated locomotives, Mikes, Big Sixes, and many other types of steam power roll past the camera. You’ll catch the action at the Lorain ore dock where steam trains unload ships laden with iron ore and will also spend time watching the steam switchers at Rossford Yard in Toledo. Then you’ll get a look at E- and F-units and Geeps in the classic B&O paint scheme.

Volume 2 resumes in Michigan, shortly after B&O had merged with the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway. Motive power and rolling stock of both railroads are frequently seen intermingled. We catch the Cincinnatian and other passenger trains on the C&O route between Detroit and Toledo, including the towers at Wayne Junction, Romulus, and Carleton. Moving east we visit Connellsville, Pennsylvania and Brunswick, Maryland where freight traffic is heavy. Motive power includes F-units and brand new GP30s. At Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, perhaps the most scenic spot on the B&O, we see both passenger and freight trains making their daily runs.

  1. 5 out of 5 The B&O

    Great video of an old fallen flag. Great footage on first generation power and what it was like in the heady days when the passenger train was king!

  2. 4 out of 5 B&O Odessey

    I love the scenes from around Ohio and Michigan. Defiantly a lot of great filming locations, including notable spots like Fostoria and Deshler. I really wish there had been a C&O version too but I and a big fan of the B&O. Some scenes are even shot off system like in Detroit.

I would suggest this video to any railfan not just for the B&O fans. The narrations is also very well done and informative.
