Climb aboard as first generation Alco diesels pull vintage passenger cars through the beautiful and scenic mountains of western Maryland. Along the route you'll ride through the "narrows," around Helmstetter's curve, through Brush Tunnel and head up and around the mountains to the restored station at the town of Frostburg.

You'll marvel at the incredible sound of old Alco diesels hard at work, and there's plenty of runby footage to savor as the trains wind through beautiful mountain landscapes. You'll ride in the cab and watch as the engineer concentrates on his tasks. Then, you'll see the engines pull onto the turntable at Frostburg and be switched to the passing track.

The railroad features three Alco diesels: RS-3 No. 199, FPA-4 No. 305, and RSD-5 No. 1669, and each one is seen in action. These classic units have been painted in the Western Maryland "fireball" paint scheme and are looking great. After seeing these units in action, you'll know why railfans have been raving about the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad.

This video was shot during the time that the Western Maryland Scenic was operating an all Alco diesel fleet and didn't own the 734 yet. All where painted in the classic Western Maryland "Fireball" paint scheme. This video also had views from the cab. Like the W&W video, my only complaint is that it's too short. 4/5

Originally paired with the Winchester & western program in the Great American Scenic Railroads video: Shennandoah Double Feature, This program has been historic since all of the alcos have now been moved to their different homes. 199 is at the Naugatuck railroad in Connecticut, 305 now back to its original number as 6771 is at the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic in Ohio, and 1689 is back in its real C&NW paint at the Illinois Railway Museum at Union Illinois.
