Must see action for the ALCO fan! On one DVD you’ll see two shows featuring ALCO diesel locomotives in Canada – one of the last strongholds of mainline ALCO action. The first show, “CP Rail’s Big ALCOs” captures the CP 4500’s and 4700’s working container trains and general freight between Montreal and Detroit. We see behind the scenes, aboard the trains, and trackside views. There is good coverage inside the cabs of these big CPR Alco’s. There are some meets and a scene exiting the Detroit River tunnel in Windsor. The second program is “Alco’s in the Highlands”, which takes you to Nova Scotia with spectacular east coast scenery. You will see hard working 6 motor ALCOs hauling 100 car trains! You’ll also see the action captured trackside as well is in the cab of trains along the various portions of the Cape Breton, and central Nova Scotia line. Most of the ALCOs are ex-CN power.

    We watch trains. Some people enjoy GE’s, while other’s enjoy EMD’s. But there nothing quite like the Alco’s. Every rail fan seems to enjoy seeing an Alco. The sound alone is captivating. Canadian Pacific Railways was one of the last mainline railroads to say farewell to these magestic giants. The producers presents this exciting program of the CPR and their Alco’s. See the workings in Montreal Quebec around the yards and to the Montreal Wharf, Then on for a quick trip aross Southern Ontario with stops near Winchester, and in Smiths Falls, and Port Hope Ontario then on to Toronto, Woodstock, Thamseford and Windsor, with a stop in Detriot Michigan. Footage is both from the cab and the ground. There is plenty of open farm land, followed by bush and lakes, then after the city back to the farm land. A fine tribute to the last days of mainline Alco’s. Then it’s on to Nova Scotia and Shortline action on the Cape Breton & Central Nova Scotia Railroad. The Alco’s live on, working up grades through this picturest country side, pulling loads of coal and general merchandize. Watch as the trains weave around lakes and Atantic inlets, over bridges and on from Sidney N.S. to the change point with the CNR at Truro N.S. Like the 1st part, see views from the cab, and from the ground. There is no video quite like Six Motor Alcos. The producers have done a fine job bringing us this excellent video production. Well Done.
