Best seat in the house, above the action! Never see a telephone pole in your way again. This all drone show couples action from the air with sounds from the ground, so it's the best of both worlds. There's no narration, but on-screen graphics provide train symbols, information and locations on the line. The sound is turn-it-up good.

We'll see Horseshoe Curve, Gallitzin, Tyrone, South Fork and more. And the backdrop to all of this action is the most beautiful fall color. At Horseshoe Curve, the view from the air mimics the old postcards of the curve. Up in the air, or in the air, but level with the trains, or across a valley – you really get to place the trains in the scenery and see the geography that dictated the route.

1 hour 48 minutes. Color, Chapter Markers, No Narration, On-Screen Graphics.
Presented in Standard Definition, Widescreen. Available in High Definition Blu-ray.

After a few decent, although hardly noteworthy releases, Pentrex has absolutely hit it out of the park with this one. I am a huge fan of NS's Pittsburgh Division, and have visited the area twice, with the hope of catching the fall colors. And as anyone familiar with the area will tell you, there are about only 10 days that you can observe the colors at their peak, so timing is critical. And again, Pentrex couldn't have done a better job, as the amazing colors explode on the screen! And the fact that all footage is shot with drones, supplemented with on-the-ground train sounds, makes this one even better. Pentrex chose great locations to shoot, and the train action is intense, with multiple meets, and a great variety of trains. A couple of Heritage units make an appearance, as does a AC44C6M (DC traction conversion). There is no narration, although train-symbols along with origination and destination points are shown. I can't say enough about this one, and if I had the option of choosing a rating higher than 5 stars, I certainly would. If possible, be sure to pick up the BR version - I guarantee you won't be disappointed!
