The Northeast Corridor was a modern commuter raceway when Pentrex set out to capture this busy line in 1992. So much great footage was filmed with Amtrak's cooperation that two videos were released giving viewers an exclusive, insider's look at Amtrak's pride and joy. Now both shows have been combined on one Combo DVD, bringing you the whole Northeast Corridor story. Included are:
In Color with Hi-Fi Sound and Narration
Full-screen (4x3) Format
No region code; can be played in any NTSC DVD player worldwide

It's 225 miles from New York's Penn Station to Washington's Union Station. The slowest train on the line takes a little over 4 hrs, with 5 stops in between today. That's a fairly good speed for a long distance train (the Silver Star and the Silver Meteor), just 2 of the trains which are witnessed on this movie.

Interesting slice of the Northeast Corridor history. Especially liked the insights and behind-the-scenes views of dispatching and tower operations.

This is a top-notch trackside action video. The scenes of the Metroliners and other high-speed Amtrak trains are fabulous. The sheer volume of fast-moving trains is more than enough to keep you interested from beginning to end.

This was a great video. Pentrex received permission to videotape trains in areas that would otherwise be off limits to railfans. Additionally, Pentrex takes viewers along for a high speed cab ride in an AEM-7. The footage was beautiful! By the end of both volumes you'll be asking for more. Plus you get both volumes on a combo disk for the price of one- how can you beat that? This video is the next best thing to actually being there!

I use Amtrak sometimes to go to Washinmgton DC or Philadelphia.

More passenger train action than you would believe. The first program deals with trains leaving Penn Station in NYC and covers the line to Philadelphia. Some amazing views of working interlocking towers that are probably gone by now. I've never seen anything so antiquated in the "A" tower that handles all the traffic in and out of Penn Station. I've probably taken hundreds of trains through that station. To think my trains were routed through this point is astonishing and to be honest, a little scary!
