The second volume of this series features the B&O's finest steam. From rare 1954 film footage we see steam powering passenger trains on the West End between Grafton, West Virginia and Cumberland, Maryland. We also steam at the head end of freights over Sand Patch Grade and coal trains on the old Buffalo Rochester and Pittsburgh near Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.

Steamers featured include EL-5s, and EM-1s, Big 6s and Q-4s, T-3s and T-4 4-8-2 Mountains. Bill captured not only the head end action, but also the rear-end pushers which were, and still are, common on Sand Patch. Many scenes feature authentic B&O steam audio recorded in the 1950’s. Massive, modern steam power thundering through some of the prettiest scenery in the East – all preserved by the camera of William Price.

    If you love and B&O you should add this to your collection. My friend let me barrow this series and I do not have it myself but plan to. If you are a steam fan I defiantly recommend this series. Excellent video with very informative narration. As always, Clear Block put this video together nicely. Its a shame there were not more Clear Block videos.
