The first 27 minutes feature 819 from pine bluff to Tyler and back In november despite the broken whistle. Next comes the early CSX roadrailer trains with a mix of chessie system and B&O units on the first day, and f units 116-119 the next day. Not only it was popular for rail fans in the 80s it was unusual that Greg Scholl shot the f-units in that time period. This segment ran for 10 minutes. At the 36-37 minute mark, we head north to Canada for lots of unique diesels on both freight and passenger operations in August as they roll in and out of downtown Toronto, Brockville with the last semaphore signal at the station, some CP freights at Pointe-claire, with the first one hauling a dead doodlebug in the consist, the second with SOO line, and a GO commuter in pushing mode with f-7 1304, and many more locations as well. Not to mention the short lived interurban coaches at portal heights. This segment was also long in this pentrex program. At the 64 minute mark, Union pacific challenger 3985 operated an excursion from Cheyenne to Laramie over Sherman hill. Keeping mind that this was way before 3985 converted to number 5 oil. At Laramie, we see the f-units on the short-lived Wyoming and Colorado railroad.12 minutes later at the 76 minute mark, we head south of the border to view more foreign diesels complete with a ride on board. Finally at the 95 minute mark we are back home for more steam action on the Cumbres & Toltec.

Another great success from Pentrex. "Best of 1988" is a high-quality production worthy of multiple viewings. I especially enjoyed the Cotton Belt 819 segment....I've long been a fan of that Pine Bluff-built steam locomotive (and dream that it can one day return to service). The footage included here is quite different from what I've seen in other videos featuring this magnificent locomotive.
