Black Diamond to Gaspe DVD Train Video
Swing aboard for a memorable journey from Chicago to Gaspe’ and return. Along the way we will sample the evening rush hour at Chicago Union Station, where E-units still reign supreme on the BN commuter fleet! Ride the “BROADWAY” on a 24-hour odyssey to New York, as everything seems to go wrong. Then it’s off to Montreal aboard 1916-vintage Lehigh Valley office car 353, “The Black Diamond. ” The “MONTREALER”, running 4 hours late, permits all of beautiful Vermont to be seen in daylight: Bellows Falls, Essex Jct, St Albans and the Lake Champlain wooden trestle.

On to Gaspe’! The undeserved/y obscure “CHALEUR”, which somehow has survived the VIA RAIL slaughter, provides vistas of the Gulf of St Lawrence, the Matapedia River, and the Atlantic Ocean. The twisting, cliff-hugging branch takes us to Perce’ where we examine the ship-like rock, and the 50,000 gannets on Bonaventure Island (world’s largest bird sanctuary).
On the return voyage, sample elegant dining aboard the 353. Many close-up detail shots are included. Return to New York on the same CN and CV route, then head south to Washington D. C. where we glimpse the magnificently restored Union Station. The “CAPITOL” offers stunning sunset vistas through the mountains en route back to Chicago. ALL ABOARD!.’
