This DVD features these two shows on one disc: Along the Hudson Division, and Amtrak's Turbo Trains Cab Ride.
The Hudson Division is one of the most scenic and interesting sections of Amtrak's Northeast Corridor.
Running north to south from Penn Station in New York City toAlbany-Rensselaer, it follows the course of the Hudson River and offersbeautiful vistas, charming old railway stations, and the specialcharacter of the river itself.
However, it's not just the scenic landscapes that attract railfans tothis area. In 1992, when Pentrex documented the line with two videoreleases, the Hudson Division was FL-9 country.
We'll take you aboard one of these classic diesels and also treat youto a cab ride on a Turbo Train. Get ready for an exciting tour of theHudson Division!
Included on this combo DVD are:
Along the Hudson Division
Join us in the cab and trackside from Penn Station, NYC north toAlbany-Rensselaer. The line is home to both Metro North's and Amtrak'sfleet of Electro-Motive FL-9 diesel-electric/electrics.
These unique locomotives are the highlight of our tour, but we'll alsosee Amtrak Turbos, Metro North MU cars, and Conrail freights.
See Amtrak's Westside line from the cab as the train snakes out of cavernous Penn Station.
Cross over the newly rebuilt Spuyten Duyvil Bridge, and ride along the shore in this exciting, beautiful journey.
Amtrak's Turbo Trains Cab Ride
Climb aboard an Amtrak Turbo Train for a high-speed run south along the Hudson Division.
The ride is as smooth as it is fast and the scenery is spectacular.You'll see Conrail freights flash past and meet other Amtrak trains ontheir northbound journeys.
Once in Metro North territory, you'll see Metro trains - classic FL-9sand MU cars - busily rushing New York commuters off to the City.
Nearing NYC, the line diverges onto Amtrak's Westside track. We crossover the bridge at Spuyten Duyvil and end our Turbo Train adventure atPenn Station.
