For over 40 years, respected railroad photographer Anthony DeRosa railfanned the Great Northern Railway system, filming its operations from Seattle to Lake Superior and capturing the essence of a once-powerful and always popular railway.
In 1994, Video Rails compiled Mr. DeRosa's collection into a 3-volume video set that was highly prized for its rare images and historical significance.
Now you can experience the Great Northern Railway with all the improved visual clarity and crispness that DVD viewing provides. This Combo DVD features:
Volume 1: Iron Ore Operations (45 minutes)
Witness the iron ore operations of the Great Northern from the mines and ore docks at Kelly Lake to Allouez, St. Paul, and Superior. Includes great views of GN's N-3 class 2-8-8-0s in action.
Volume 2: Diesel & Electric Power (45 minutes)
View the diesel locomotives that were common to everyday use across the vast Great Northern system, as well as Northern Pacific and SP&S diesel power. GN's mighty electrics are featured as well.
Volume 3: Steam Power (45 minutes)
See the Great Northern's widely varied fleet of steam power in action, from the smallest 0-6-0s to the giant 2-8-8-2s. A special highlight is a pacing sequence with a huge R-2 class 2-8-8-2.
These and other unique views bring you the Great Northern Railway as few have seen it!
