The RF&P was chartered in 1834. It was to run between the Civil War capitals of the South and the North. The railroad evolved into a bridge line, connecting the major lines of the south, such as the ACL, SAL and C&O, with the major carriers in the north, such as the Pennsy and the B&O.

The RF&P was chartered in 1834. It was to run between the Civil War capitals of the South and the North. The railroad evolved into a bridge line, connecting the major lines of the south, such as the ACL, SAL and C&O, with the major carriers in the north, such as the Pennsy and the B&O. The RF&P was absorbed into CSX Transportation in 1991. Chester Kamuda spent much time along the 113 mile route, from Potomac Yard in Washington, DC, to Acca Yard in Richmond. Most of the program is in the CSX era but we get a few looks at earlier power clad in blue and gray. All color, maps and narration.

    I expected this DVD to simply showcase the former RF&P between Richmond and Alexandria VA – I was wrong! This DVD shows some footage from the end of the RF&P, 1990s CSX as well as CSX from the 2000s and is a GREAT showcase of the power and trains from those eras. I enjoyed how this video showed Amtrak’s Auto-Train using both heritage equipment as well as the Superliners. The only thing that could have made this video better would be some more footage of Potomac Yard before it was completely abandoned. Overall an OUTSTANING VIDEO that I am happy to have bought.
