Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

Travel to old Cape Cod with Pentrex as we look back over ten years of change from 1999 to 2009 on the former New Haven Old Colony line. It's a tourist destination famous for its scenic beauty, but there's plenty of action for railfans too.

We'll take you trackside to watch the Bay Colony Railroad trash train - a train that turns trash into cash! This train takes trucks off the scenic roads and trash off the Cape as it provides a revenue stream for its operator; we'll watch as it hauls refuse to a power plant in Rochester. You'll also see dinner and brunch trains running on the Cape Cod Central as well as a shipment of huge tracked vehicles from the Otis Military Reservation hauled by newcomer Mass Coastal. There's a wide variety of motive power for you to enjoy, such as rebuilt Geeps, a re-engined Alco, and a gurgling GE B39. We'll take a detour to the town of Millis to watch plucky Bay Colony Railroad GP9 #1705 switch the sprawling GAF shingle plant. Then we'll return to the Cape to see the debut of the Mass Coastal Railroad, featuring a gleaming roster of Geeps and custom-built "energy" cars. It's a trip to old Cape Cod you won't want to miss. Join us for a look at Cape Cod Railroads - A Decade of Change.

An excellent DVD for any railfan. The scenery is fantastic, there is plenty of variety in the trains and locomotives shown and the show is very informative. The footage of GE B39 8580 at work was valuable enough because many B39s are currently sidelined or being scrapped. It was fun watching the 8580 sway back and forth over the aging and neglected jointed rail that is now being replaced by Mass Coastal, the current provider of freight service on Cape Cod. Definately worth the cost.
