The West End has been called the toughest mountain railroad in the Eastern United States. This legendary route crosses the eastern Continental Divide from Cumberland, Maryland to Grafton, West Virginia. Four steep grades of up to 2.8 percent make helper engines necessary over an incredible 66 mile district. Once the domain of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, the West End, also known as the Mountain Subdivision, is now owned by CSX Transportation.

Travel along all 101 miles of the Mountain Subdivision with Iron Horse America. You’ll see nonstop freight action from trackside and in the cab from Cumberland to Grafton. Coal trains and mixed freights look fantastic battling the grades of the Allegheny Mountains in late fall and early spring, but the highlight of the show is incredible winter footage. You’ll see winter railroading at its toughest as CSX keeps freight moving in spite of heavy blizzards.

This two-disc set, which was shot in cooperation with CSX, brings you the fantastic sights and sounds of Allegheny Mountain railroading – long, heavy trains grinding towards the summits, helper engines at full throttle, and twisting mountain curves.

  1. Lloyd

    Iron Horse America, later Pentrex puts together an excellent video presentation of eastern mountain railroading at it’s finest. Steep grades, various season including hard work in the winter adds to the enjoyment of this video. Some cab ride enjoyment also, along with ground scenes in an extremely scenic part of the USA. This is a great show for all rail fans.

    All “Into The Allegheny Range” volumes are very well done. Good videography, narration, and interesting trains.
