B&O Odyssey Vol. #2 continues on time wise where Vol. #1 leaves off up to 1968. Much the same as Vol. #1, we see many older diesels, from various locations in B&O territory across the US Northeast. The time frame brings in the C&O merger trains and many of C&O territory trains. Very interesting video that the early diesel and B&O/C&O fans will really enjoy and appreciate. The history value of this video makes it worth having for all railfans to have in their collection. only thing I thought that could have been added was more time to the video, considering the greatness of the history of the B&O. 4 stars is enough.

In part 2, there are multiple visits to B&O territory with great early diesel action throughout the 60s. Which includes 1964 action at Delray Michigan, a trio of 1965 variety at the towns of Romulus Michigan, Toledo Ohio, And Connellsville Pennsylvania which is at the western side of sand patch grade. Plus a short 1966 visit to harpers ferry West Virginia, a 1967 quickie at college Pennsylvania, and the show concludes with a trio of 1968 variety at Plymouth and Wayne Michigan, and concludes the final year�s of the B&O before it was merged with the chessie system in the 70s and 80s at Carleton Michigan.

Very old film shot in the 60's and in some very un-photogenic places. Not a good video in way or fashion. The historical aspect was the only saving grace for this thing, and with that in mind could have actually used more narration.
