CSX’s Sand Patch Grade in western Pennsylvania is one of the most popular railfanning sites in the eastern U.S. Heavy tonnage; high-density traffic and grueling mountain grades are trademarks of this famous former B&O route.
This production of Into the Allegheny Range Volume 4 was filmed by Iron Horse America over a three-year period during the mid 1990s. In it you’ll see a multitude of trains at familiar landmarks as well as the rarely seen west slope, during all seasons of the year. Many of the locomotives are sporting their pre-CSX paint schemes from various predecessor railroads. You’ll visit towers, tunnels, and obscure branch lines. Plus, you’ll see the last train to ever run on the old Berlin Subdivision out of Garrett, Pennsylvania. You’ll even ride on a pusher engine shoving an eastbound freight from Connellsville, Pennsylvania, up the west slope to the summit at Sand Patch. Enjoy the ultimate mountain railroading experience with Volume 4 of Into the Allegheny Range!
