Altoona to Pittsburgh
On October 16, 1991 Neff Video was asked to ride along on the Conrail inspection train, more commonly known as the Office Car Special. The train departed Altoona, Pennsylvania on a cloudless, blue sky day and headed west to Pittsburgh.
Join us as we thread our way up the steep grade towards the world famous Horseshoe Curve. Beautiful fall foliage accentuates the path the train will take past locations such as Alto Tower, Slope, Horseshoe Curve Park, MG Tower, Gallitzin, MO Tower, Cresson, South Fork, SO Tower, Johnstown, New Florence, Conpit, Latrobe, Greensburg, and finally our destination, Penn Station in Pittsburgh.
Enjoy a beautiful sunset as the train is backed to the station to end the day. Not only will you see video shot from the cab of an E-8 diesel locomotive, but action photographed from the rear end theater car, the full length dome car, and from the vestibule as well.
55 minutes, full color, sound, no narration and on-screen graphics.
