Railroad Variety Pack contains a wealth of great steam and diesel train action in 4 separate DVDs stacked in one case. There’s over 290 minutes of railroad entertainment here! First up is Rail Industry Films Rail Industry Films is a collection of Four Company Films. The highlight film is a 20 minute New York Central film showing the famous Hudson (4-6-4) and everything about it from operations to servicing. Also another Black and White films is a Pennsylvania Railroad film called On To Washington. In addition there are two Steel Company films dealing with testing of railroad Trucks(Wheels), and braking which includes several test trains. These two films are in color.
This is somewhat like a “Best of” video as each shot is an interesting scene where the train is reflected, providing a double image. There are mainline steam and diesels in the United States, plus scenic Western Canada.
