40023 "The Old Main Line Part 1 – Baltimore to Frederick Junction." This is the first of a multi-part series of DVD Videos covering the B&O Old Mail Line. Part 1 covers the area from Baltimore to Frederick Junction. At the request of railfans, Blue Ridge Productions spent parts of two years shooting whatever trains they could find on the Old Main Line of the B&O. They give as complete an idea as they can of the trackage from Baltimore west. Different types of trains were caught while showing different locations, and LOTS of trains west of Point of Rocks where the Old Main joins the Metropolitan Sub and heads up the river, capturing multi-track high-volume railroading. Most trains are CSX powered, although some interesting power units visited, as are MARC and Amtrak. This video is done like a "Railpace Magazine" article, showing railfans how to get in & out of an area, what to see, when, etc. If you've never railfanned the Old Main Line, take an armchair trip up the OML 30.00

40024 "The Old Main Line, Part 2, Frederick Junction to Harpers Ferry." This is the second DVD video in a series surveying the oldest railroad in the Western Hemisphere. Here we follow the railroad west covering the lightly traveled Old Main Line Sub-division to Point of Rocks Station where it joins the more heavily traveled Metropolitan Sub-division. The original Old Main Line went on to Wheeling, W.v. We intend to follow the rails west as well. Again, we will use U.S. Geological Survey Maps to help you understand where the tracks run. We will also try our best to show you a complete look at the significant locations and artifacts of a long-lived railroad. You will see lots of CSX freight trains and MARC passenger trains, but once we get to the Metropolitan Sub-division you'll see Amtrak Trains as well. So if you want to see trains, lots oftrains, come along with us as we survey the oldest railroad in the Western Hemisphere. 90 Minutes. Stereo 30.00

40027 "The Old Main Line, Part 4 - Hancock to Cumberland." This DVD video includes very scenic but remote locations along the East End of the Cumberland Division of the old B&O, including high locations to show the tracks in a very different angle. See the magnificent railroad engineering that makes up the “Magnolia Cutoff” at MP 139, where the tracks cross the great Rockwell Run Fill made from the spoils of tunneling efforts that failed to pay off until Randolph Tunnel. Tracks run about a mile through Doe Gully before turning and plunging into the tunnel. Doe Gully sported impressive sides some as high as 50 to 60 feet and we found the B&O logo still resident on an old signal bungalo. At Hansrote, tracks curve into 3,355 foot long Stuart Tunnel. We shot the huge fill and bridge at Magnolia from the top of Tunnel Hill as well as from trackside. We show you Graham Tunnel and Kessler Bridge from the hill as well. Add “The Concrete Wall,” Carothers Tunnel, followed by most of the signals to Cumberland Terminal; and you get a very complete look at impressive turn-of-the-century railroad engineering (1913-14). All this trackage gets highlighted by lots of CSX trains along with Amtrak’s Capital Limited 30.00

40029 "The Old Main Line, Part 5 – Cumberland to Grafton." This is our final part in the Old Main Line DVD Video series surveying the oldest railroad in the Western Hemisphere. We are tackling the fabled "West End" from Cumberland, MD to Grafton, WV. This part of the Old Main Line crawled up the Allegheny Mountains with storied 17 Mile, Cranberry, Cheat River and finally the Newburg Grade. Again, we will use U.S. Geological Survey Maps to help you understand where the tracks run. This video also brings you the awesome sounds of mountain railroading. You will see lots ofCSX coal trains and the 2 daily freight trains. So if you want to hear trains struggling against their tonnage and the mountain rails, come along with us as we continue our survey of the oldest railroad in the Western Hemisphere. We've also included a special bonus feature on the West Virginia Northern. a 100 year old railroad that brought coal to Tunnelton, WV. 30.00

40034 "Sand Patch Part 3: West Keystone – Connellsville to Pittsburgh." This DVD video takes you through the rest of the Keystone Subdivision, then continues into the Pittsburgh Subdivision. From Connellsville, we follow a fairly level river route through towns and communities very much in transition from the very heavy mining and industrialized region of days gone by. There are plenty of artifacts of that rich industrial heritage as well as evidence of the huge struggle for the area to reinvent itself. We visit the sites of one of the early Southwestern Pennsylvania bourbon distilleries in Broad Ford, then the home of the early coke industry near Dawson. We pass near old deep coal and strip mines sites as well. We reach the end of the Keystone Subdivision just after crossing the Youghiogheny River for the first time in McKeesport, Pennsylvania.At “Sinns Interlocking” and the old Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad Signals we enter the Pittsburgh Subdivision. After crossing the “Yough” again, near its mouth at the Monongahela River, we reach the heavily populated area South of Pittsburgh. Here we continue our travel through the remnants of the huge American steel industry along the banks of the “Monon.” Travel slows a bit and becomes more congested as the old railroad joins a couple of additional old railroads. The Baltimore and Ohio bought all the assets of the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie in 1991 and 1992, and moved to those tracks to escape the congestion and street crossings in McKeesport, Braddock, Glenwood and Pittsburgh. Now passing through remnants of huge switching yards, we come to the last blast furnace in the Pittsburgh area at the Edgar Thompson Plant of U S Steel in Braddock, PA. After leaving Demmlar Signals we snake through what’s left of Braddock and settle at Braddock Signal where the Pittsburgh and Western Subdivision joins the P&LE or Pittsburgh Subdivison under the Rankin Bridge. The railroad runs as a single track from here to pass through the Jones & Laughlin tunnel in South Pittsburgh. At the West end of the tunnel it splits back into double track. We end this video at the CSX Pittsburgh Signal across from Point State Park at the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers. The area was once laced with tracks of numerous parallel railroads. At Port Perry, near the eastern edge of Braddock, tracks of the Pennsylvania Railroad, Baltimore and Ohio, Union Railroad (U S Steel) and Pennsylvania & Lake Erie all came through. The PRR became Conrail now Norfolk & Southern. The B&O and P&LE are now the CSX Railroad. Some of those railroad beds are now turning into biking and jogging paths, while the survivors consolidate along historic rail corridors that carried the raw materials and products for a once huge steel industry. Remnants of that industry can be seen in this video. You will also see lots of unusual power lash-ups as well as Amtrak’s Capitol Limited. See # 40031 and # 40032 above for Parts 1 and 2. Own all three 30.00
