CSX and Norfolk Southern are the major players in this region and plenty of heavy-duty action is seen from both railroads, but we also see a lot of unusual and shortline railroading.

With state-of-the-art camera equipment, Pentrex crews travel throughout much of the central part of Kentucky searching for the wide variety of incredible action that can be found here. CSX and Norfolk Southern are the major players in this region and plenty of heavy-duty action was filmed from both railroads. In addition, the regional RJ Corman Railroad is highlighted, including their dinner train powered by classic FP7s. We caught everything from ground-shaking ballast trains to the more commonly found auto, manifest, & intermodal freights that polish the rails daily.

It’s always an incredible sight to watch new CSX power in La Grange trundling down the middle of a downtown street right past 130 year old buildings! Long steel trestles are common too and we caught several trains crossing these impressive structures. The Paducah & Louisville was captured performing switching duties. Some of Union Pacific’s SD90MAC locomotives found a new home on the Norfolk Southern and we caught some of them in action for you to enjoy. We finish our exciting program chasing trains from 2 different operating train museums in the area.

  1. Lloyd

    Mainline action with some shortlines in a region known for scenic beauty. 2 hours of some of the best railroad action to be seen in the central USA. Personally…. my favorite part is seeing the beautiful old trestles and deep canyons that they cross. Great variety of motive power adds to the railfan experience.

    Every Pentrex dvd is fantastic and this one is no exception. This video has great footage of rj corman including the dinner train and some switching operations. Lots of other cool things to see in this dvd. So excited to order this dvd.

  3. Ricky

    This new pentrex dvd features today’s mainlines, shortlines, and tourist lines in the midwest/southeast state, despite the final scenes of the Kentucky Railway Museum is out of sync, but it’ll still contain lots of great diesel action in the bluegrass state. Eventually there are a ton of NS & CSX freights rolling by the streets, hauling coal, as well as some samples of the dinner train.

  4. T.A.R.

    ANOTHER GREAT DVD FROM PENTEX, USING STATE OF THE ART CAMERA EQUIPMENT. SEE THE CXS AND NORFOLK SOUTHERN AT WORK ALONG SIDE OTHER TRAIN COMPANIES. ALSO HIGHLIGHTED IS THE RJ CORMAN RAIL ROAD. LOTS OF IN YOUR FACE ACTION AND GREAT SCENERY. ALSO SEE LOTS OF TRESTLES AND MUCH MORE. 4 STARS AND 2 HOURS LONG.

    Very good video on a beautiful region. Pentrex has done a fine job putting this one together. Really enjoyed the R J Corman trains. And don’t forget the other shortline…Paducah & Louisville switching.
    My personal favorate is watching trains on trestles. Lots to see.
