Quick Ride on Tionesta Valley Railway. Part 2

Here’s the rest of the loop until I ran out of memory… There are a couple of decent grades that aren’t really apparent in the video. Coming down around the loop and bridge, then climbing back up to the switch. The back from the Y headed back to the main yard. It’s not bad to ride it, but if you’re at the controls, you better be paying attention. The diesel isn’t too bad, but under steam you figure out if you’re a good operator or not! I enjoy it more than you can imagine.

Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor Cab Ride – DVD

Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor Cab Ride Cab Ride – Washington DC to Philadelphia Pentrex is proud to present an exclusive look at Amtrak’s pride and joy, the Northeast Corridor. Produced with Amtrak’s cooperation, this video concludes our 3-part exploration of the electrified, heavily-trafficked south end of the line. Climb aboard AEM7 locomotive number 911 in Washington, DC for a cab ride to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at the head of Metroliner Train 110. We’ll cover the entire route, often at speeds of 125 MPH! The big picture windows of the cab give you a clear view of what it’s like meeting passing trains at full throttle. With both trains doing 125 MPH, the closing speeds are an exciting 250 MPH! Amtrak’s constant maintenance and its manicured roadbed result in a smooth ride for the AEM7. You’ll be amazed as the Metroliner rolls trough a high-speed turnout at almost 70 MPH. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to ride in the cab of an AEM7 electric locomotive pulling Amtrak’s fastest trains, this is your opportunity to experience the thrill of it. Join us for a cab ride along Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor!
