Central Vermont Railway in Steam Vol 2 - A & R Productions Train Video

Our first video about the CV in steam brought cries for "more". We were fortunate to obtain two more film collections with enough steam action for a second volume (we now have the film for a future Vol. III). CV-2 focuses on the CV in Massachusetts and Vermont, particularly on the "700's", the roads big 2-10-4's, New England's largest. The 2-8-0's are the stars, but almost every CV class is represented, from 0-6-0's, 0-8-0's, the passenger mountain-type 4-8-2's and a few Canadian National C-Liner diesels. Highlights include a through freight in Amherst, Massachusetts that had been powered by a brace of C-Liners. One of the growlers broke down and the local freight's consol was called in to bail it out. Running tender forward, the feisty 2-8-0 struggled with all her might, continually slipping, spewing smoke and cinders, at a walking pace, but managing to get the train over the grade! A classic episode of steam railroading at its best! The 2-10-4 "Santa Fe"-types were too heavy to run south of Brattleboro, Vermont. We follow one of the beasts northward out of Brattleboro on a sub-zero degree winter morning with a heavy freight in tow. Fantastic!
