Railroading "hot spots" are favorite gathering places where railfans can expect to see numerous trains in a short amount of time. Following upon the success of Conrail Hot Spots East, which covered the eastern half of the extensive Conrail system, Pentrex set out to record many of the revered hot spots on the western half of the system in the states of Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois.

The locations visited in Ohio include Ashtabula, Alliance, Crestline, the Cleveland Drawbridge, Berea Tower, Galion, Marion, Port Clinton, Toledo, and Ridgeway. Indiana sites include Elkhart, South Bend, Porter, Hammond, Muncie, and Terre Haute and in Illinois we view the action at St. Elmo and Effingham.

All Conrail trains are identified by their symbols indicating departure cities and destinations. Big Blue puts on an impressive show for us with its fleet of power that was relatively new for 1996, such as SD60s and C40s. Locomotives from other railroads are seen on Conrail trains as run-through power. In addition, trains belonging to CSX, Norfolk Southern, Union Pacific, Illinois Central, and Grand Trunk Western are seen at many of the important junctions. Released originally in 1996, this presentation is now available with the enhanced viewing clarity and ease that DVD can offer. Join us for an exciting tour of railroading along Conrail Hot Spots West!

An interesting assortment of locations in the Conrail system. Lots of trains and various power. A few locations not really cosidered to be hotspots for Conrail, but adds to the variety in the movie. For the railfan who wants to travel to various locations, all can be covered within a few days to a week. This adds to the movie because if you follow the locations on a map, you will enjoy the movie even more. Nothing is that far appart time wise. I enjoyed it to the point where I actually made a trip earlier this year to Northwestern Ohio and was not disappointed.
