    CSX SOUTHERN WEST VIRGINIA COAL

    In 1994, Pentrex went on a tour of discovery along CSX branchlines in the coalfields
    of West Virginia to show you how coal was brought down out of the hollows and moved
    out to world markets. Long, heavy trains grinding through curve after curve,
    powering through daunting grades, loaded with the raw ore that will feed a hungry
    nation; that's what you'll find here. Traveling on the Logan, the Big River, and the
    Big Coal Subdivisions, you'll see hard working diesels pull strings of hoppers up
    stiff grades and twisting branchlines where the cars will be flood-loaded at the
    mines. Cabooses are still utilized on some trains and rear-end pushers can be seen
    on others. Following the loaded trains out of the coalfields, you'll visit a
    rail-to-river transfer facility where a rotary dumper quickly unloads the "black
    diamonds" into barges. An interview with Tim Hensley, CSX Resident Vice-President
    for West Virginia, provides intriguing insight about the significance of these coal
    operations to the railroad and the state. The action never ceases for CSX as it
    meets the challenge of the coalfields of Southern West Virginia!

    1 Hour 30 Minutes. Product Code: #CSXC-DVD. Price: $29.95.

    ILLINOIS TERMINAL - A TRACTION TIME MACHINE

    Step back to the 1930s-1950s to experience one of the largest interurban railroads
    in the country. Originally known as the Illinois Traction System, the Illinois
    Terminal Railroad was a significant provider of passenger and freight service for
    central Illinois, with Springfield as its hub. Now, through this fascinating
    collection of color and black and white films and photographs you can revisit the
    Illinois Terminal during the height of its career.

    The full range of Illinois Terminal passenger equipment is displayed here, from the
    trademark IT "traction orange" arch window cars as well as the blue arch window cars
    to blue-and-silver streamliners, PCC cars, and even the Alto-to-Grafton Railbus. A
    wide array of freight power is also highlighted, such as center cabs and streamlined
    class B freight motors. Scenes of passenger and freight action are captured from St.
    Louis, to Springfield, Bloomington, Peoria, and many other locations along the
    Illinois Terminal route. You'll enjoy great shots of street running with cars
    negotiating sharp curves, fast running on elevated tracks, trackside views taken in
    towns, cities and along the open countryside, action on the Lake Decatur and
    McKinley Bridges, and lots of fantastic cab rides. There are many insider scenes as
    well, such as crews changing trains, rides inside the cars, cabooses on the ends of
    freight trains, a conductor at work, the Railbus being turned on a turntable, a new
    streamlined freight motor being rolled out, freights exchanging with steam
    railroads, the Springfield yard, railfan excursions, the last run of an older
    traction car, and many other special images that round out this amazing story of an
    iconic interurban electric railroad!

    Texas State Railroad - Now on DVD!

    New on DVD!


    STEAM THROUGH THE PINEY WOODS
    The Texas State Railroad

    Deep in the Piney Woods of East Texas, the hard working steam
    locomotives of the Texas State Railroad put on thrilling performances.
    With their stacks barking out steady cadences, the toiling engines
    carry their passenger trains uphill and down, across 25 miles of
    picturesque terrain between the towns of Palestine and Rusk. Pentrex
    traveled there in 1999 to capture an in-depth view of its operations.
    The stars of this show are Baldwin Consolidation #300 and a former
    Santa Fe Pacific-type engine, #500. Great trackside and onboard
    photography showcases these classic steamers and their vintage
    passenger equipment. We'll take you into the cab where the engineer
    and fireman battle the steep grades and severe curves of this
    backwoods country. You'll see them at work and hear them explain how
    they meet the challenge. A visit to the shop area finds steam
    locomotives, vintage freight cars, and several classic diesels on
    display, along with the highly esteemed Texas & Pacific 610, the
    only surviving example of the mammoth 2-10-4 T&P Texas-type
    locomotives. Here is your opportunity to enjoy your own private
    tour!

    Monon - Now on DVD! 56
    New on DVD!


    MONON
    She's A Hoosier Line!

    If there ever was a midwestern railroad that achieved storybook
    charisma, it was the "Hoosier Line," Indiana's own railroad.
    Noted railroad historian Bill Warrick has assembled an amazing
    collection of vintage footage to bring you a thoroughly entertaining
    retrospective of the Monon from its humble beginnings in 1847 to its
    takeover in 1971 by the L&N. Fascinating footage details how
    Army hospital cars were converted into sparkling red-and-crimson
    streamlined passenger cars led by brand new F-3s as the Monon retired
    its steam fleet and became one of the first Class 1 railroads to
    convert entirely to diesel power. You'll see how the Monon provided
    transportation to generations of students, earning it the title
    "The College Railroad." Highlights feature the popular
    Chicago-Louisville "Thoroughbred" train and the 100th
    Anniversary "Centennial Train." Yet, as popular as passenger
    travel was on the Monon it was freight traffic that provided the
    profit. There are many scenes of RS2 and BL2 locomotives hauling the
    freights that served the limestone industry of southern Indiana and
    switched with many east-west railroads. The Monon Railroad comes alive
    again in this delightful presentation, which is as enjoyable today as
    when it was originally released in VHS by Interurban Press in 1990.
    Here's your opportunity to relive life aboard the Hoosier Line!

    Ending Monday - the $19.95 sale price for "AMTRAK ACROSS
    AMERICA COMBO!"


    New on DVD!

    Climb aboard for an adventure-packed tour of America's passenger
    train service. From the early years when a variety of motive power and
    an eclectic mix of passenger cars pioneered Amtrak's operations, to
    the new Genesis locomotives and the high-speed corridors of the late
    1990s, Amtrak's colorful history rolls across the screen.


    You'll see historic footage of the famous passenger trains of
    the Pennsy, New York Central, Great Northern, Santa Fe, and other
    railroads. Then you're treated to great views of Amtrak throughout
    its first 25 years of existence. Highlights include the Southwest
    Chief, Coast Starlight, Empire Builder, Desert Wind, Sunset Limited,
    and other well-known trains. Your travels take you to the Northeast
    Corridor, the Hudson Division, Horse Shoe Curve, the Chicago Hub, and
    many other exciting routes. A fascinating mix of motive power, onboard
    views of popular trains, cab rides, spectacular run-bys, and gorgeous
    scenery await you in "Amtrak Across America, 25th
    Anniversary" which is one of the two videos on this combo
    disc.


    The other video on this disc is "Amtrak's X2000
    Demonstration." Amtrak's search for new equipment to serve the
    Northeast Corridor created an opportunity for ABB-Traction to
    demonstrate its futuristic X2000 trainset. Pentrex takes you aboard
    the train for a close up look at the remarkable technology at work in
    the X2000. Amtrak's manager of performance and tests explains how
    the X2000's radial self-steering trucks, car body tilt functions,
    and regenerative braking systems operate. You'll climb into the cab
    of the X2000 and zip down the corridor at 135 MPH! Then you'll go
    trackside and airborne for shots of the train racing through the
    countryside. Enjoy the X2000 as it delivers the smoothest, quietest
    ride at maximum speeds!
