Title: Mountain Grades of the BB&O DVD

Publisher: Charles Smiley Presents

Book Condition: New

Description:

Mountain Grades of the B&O DVD by Charles Smiley Presents. 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. The Mountain Subdivision brings the last Western Maryland units in service. CSX fans will also see the early color schemes. Chessie fans will see lots of 'tri-color' power. Additional color comes from several CSX liveries from the 1991-era. The history of mergers of Chesapeake & Ohio, Baltimore & Ohio, Western Maryland and Seaboard Lines up to the CSXT formation is reviewed. Early film presents B&O, CB&O and L&N power plus vignettes of Western Maryland and the small WVN Railroads. 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! Charles Smiley Presents, 1 hour 33 minutes. Bookseller Inventory # csp136
