CN and CP Montreal to Toronto Mains Blu-Ray

CN and CP Montreal to Toronto Mains Blu-Ray

Welcome to the land of big trains.  This program shows at least twenty-four hours of action on the two busiest rail lines for freight and via Rail passenger trains in eastern Canada - the Canadian National and Via Corridor between Montreal and Toronto and Canadian Pacific’s Belleville Subdivision, part of their Montreal to Toronto main line in October of 2015.  The Canadian National line, known in Canada simply as the Corridor currently hosts twenty-six Via passenger trains on weekdays along with at sixteen CN freight trains.  And these are not just any freight trains.  CN runs some of the longest and heaviest mixed carload and intermodal trains on the planet on this high-speed and superbly engineered 334-mile line between Montreal and Toronto originally opened by the Grand Trunk Railway in 1856.  Canadian Pacific’s main line between Montreal and Toronto is one of their busiest lines for freight traffic in eastern Canada and it showcases the changes made by its new president, Hunter Harrison who used to lead CN.  Ethanol and crude oil have recently added to the tonnage on these lines.  This program first shows over twenty-eight hours of action on CP in the middle of their Belleville subdivision around Trenton, Ontario and then over twenty-four hours of action on the CN and Via Corridor around Gananoque, Ontario, about eighty miles east of where CP was videotaped.   This DVD is 1 hour and 45 minutes in length.  It can be watched with or without narration.
