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!

  1. Mike Keener

    Highly enjoyed this video. I’ve always enjoyed early 90s CSX with the variety of motive power and paint schemes and this video is no exception. There is also some interesting historical video along with maps of the old B&O. Highly recommended for those interested in the B&O/CSX and mountain railroading.
