This one will give you goose bumps! A feast of steam hard at work across the length of the New York Central System includes streamliners like The Commodore Vanderbilt and the Chicagoan that scream across the Ohio heartland at speeds over 90 miles per hour. One of the wonders of the steam locomotive world, The New York Central 4-8-4 Niagara—a locomotive so good it was an embarrassment to a railroad management that chose to embrace diesel power—is featured along with the Mohawk, the workhorse of steam that ruled the New York Central Mainline for almost 20 years before the advent of the Hudson. An early morning parade of steam—commuters, mail and crack luxury trains—head down the shore of the Hudson River to New York City, transporting you trackside to an era few can remember! The DVD also dwells on the famous division point at Elkhart, Indiana where roller bearing Niagaras drifted though the yard with 5000 tons and exhaled barely a sigh, only to awake like bull elephants when they felt the mainline beneath their feet. The finale features “Gotham Steam” on the Erie and the Jersey Central in the 1940s and early ‘50s.
