CSX's ex-New York Central Rochester Sub Blu-Ray

The original New York Central line across upstate New York between Albany and Lake Erie at Buffalo is certainly one of the more historic and influential rail lines in this country. Today CSX is the owner and operator of this celebrated line. This program shows over twenty-four hours of fast paced action in July of 2015 on the former New York Central, nee Penn Central and Conrail water level route west of Rochester, New York between the junction with the former West Shore Railroad bypass around Rochester at Chili and South Byron, just east of Batavia on Bergen Hill. This is part of CSX’s Rochester Subdivision that extends from Rochester to Buffalo. CSX has operated their share of Conrail for nearly sixteen years and now has their own stamp on this historic line. There have been many changes to the makeup of the trains and operations on this line since our last look fifteen years ago. CSX’s two track main line across upstate New York carries almost all of their traffic between the New York City metropolitan area and the Midwest including the recently added crude oil trains for terminals and refineries in Albany, New Jersey, and adjoining Philadelphia. Amtrak’s Lake Shore Limited and Empire Service trains also grace this line. This DVD is a 2 disk set. It is 1 hour and 55 minutes in length and can be watched with or without narration.

Our programs show the whole train

  • Most programs show all trains for 24 hours or more
  • Train symbols, origins, history, and operations covered in narration
  • No train video producer does a better job of explaining railroading than we do
  • Our programs are truly documentaries of railroading
  • Years 1992 to present

Our mission is to document the incredible changes going on in today's railroading. Our programs are aimed at customers interested in operations and fans and modelers that want to know what is truly going on in railroading and to see the whole train. We are the only train video producer who makes every effort to identify and show complete trains. Expert commentary tells about the changes in operations over the years, schedules, and what a particular train is carrying and where it is going. Most of our DVDs and videos show 24 hours of action on a particular line or at a given point. These programs give a 24 hour "look" at today's railroading that is unprecedented in the train video industry and will become more valuable as time goes on.  Our programs are documentaries that cover contemporary railroading from 1992 to the present and were shot in locations all over the United States and Canada. These DVDs and videos are not simply a collection of runbys of locomotives and a few head end cars taken at different places. We are recording history!  That is why original slogan was "No More Mindless Runbys."
