Visit Sand Patch Grade, Cranberry Grade and more. This material was shot in 1983, 1989 and 1991 with a mix of video and color movie-film dating back to 1969. See a colorful mix of power and a style of railroading that is vanished forever. This DVD even brings you the last Western Maryland units in service. Chessie fans will see lots of “tri-color” power and CSX fans will see the early color schemes and well as CSX liveries from the 1991-era. See lots of Seaboard and Family Lines power mixed with B&O, Chessie System and CSX colors in big power ‘lash-ups’ with helpers and meets.
The “Cranberry” grade of the Mountain Subdivision, and the Sand Patch grade of the Keystone Subdivision with its beautiful scenery, small towns and great trains are a special visual experience. This is all color, digitally enhanced material, shot in many seasons by Tom Luckey. It brings you a lot of great action with helpers and heavy grades. Many maps have been made for this video to give the viewer a full presentation. These are views back in time with the old Color-Position signals, towers and lots of great railroading that could only be found on the old B&O mountain grades!
