Scenic Train Ride from White River Junction to Thetford, VT. Green Mountain Railroad.
This was a neat train ride in old train cars. We went in July 2013.
Cascade And Columbia River Railway - Washington, USA
Cascade And Columbia River Railway passing through rural Washington, USA on Monday July 22nd 2013.
Note the old wooden style of grade crossing across this piece of roadway, quite a rare setup that you just don't see much anymore on shortline and or mainline railroading operations in the United States. Anyone else but me miss that trait to grade crossings from back in the day?
Get R Done!
Thanks For Watching and Enjoy!

The Vermont Rail System at Night: Trains on the Clarendon and Pittsford Mainline (Volume One)
Formerly known as a mainline of the Delaware and Hudson Railroad, the Clarendon and Pittsford Railroad is one of the most unique lines on the Vermont Rail System. There is two different lines that belong to the CLP: The Florence Subdivision (OMYA slurry plant duties) and the CLP Mainline Subdivision. (Rutland, VT-Whitehall, NY) Over the past few decades, the CLP has been unique in that it hosts daily Amtrak passenger trains over the mainline, and over the past decade, the VRS has put a lot of work and time into making trains on that line travel faster and make the VRS one of the most effecient short-lines in the nation.
Enjoy the first piece of a new series that I was thinking about making, a separate compilation video aside from Trains on the Vermont Rail System so that the next TVRS (If I was to make another one) isn't cramped with CLP videos. Yes, it is dark out, but the CLP is the most flexible train on the VRS that I am able to catch, being typically busy during the day. Note as well that these videos are JUST FOR FUN.
(0:00) 264: (VTR GP40-2 303, GMTX GP38-2 2663, VTR SD70M-2 432)
On a wet, warm December evening, VTR 303 blows across Business Route 4, with a normally killer RS5T that now sounds very fouled compared to when we last caught it this past summer.
(1:40) 264: (GMTX SD60 9000, VTR GP40-2W 310, VTR GP38-3 206)
Jointly-leased (Providence and Worcester, Vermont Rail System) GMTX 9000 rolls through Marble and Barnes Streets in West Rutland, laying on the horn in the process!
(3:15) 264: (GMTX SD60 9000, VTR GP40-2W 310)
Knowing ahead of time that the 9000 would be leading, I shot the train from a different angle this time from the same crossings in West Rutland. Because the horn is oddly located on the left side of the locomotive instead of the top, the horn is better heard, even echoing through the mountains surrounding the village.
(5:50) 264: (VTR GP40-2 307, GMTX GP38-2 2208?, GMTX GP38-2 2684)
264 once again rolls through the same crossings in West Rutland. VTR 307 is leading with a great sounding New Cast K5LA horn.
(8:10) 264: (GMTX GP38-2 2205, GMTX GP38-2 2208, VTR SD70M-2 431)
Just a short yet dark clip of 264 rolling through West Rutland just before the same spot as the last. This one is just for sound. Newly repainted VTR 431 is trailing, but you wouldn't have known that otherwise because the clip is so dark!
(9:05) 264: (VTR GP40-2W 310, VTR GP40-2W 311, VTR SD70M-2 432)
Three widecabs in one train!!
(10:55) The same train through Castleton. If you listen closely, you can hear the bell at the South Street crossing just up ahead.
(13:35) The same train crosses US-4 in Whitehall, NY.
(16:36) 264: (GMTX GP38-2 2663, GMTX GP38-2 2208, GMTX GP38-2 2147)
Last but not least, we catch GMTX 2663 with a MONSTER K3LA horn as it rolls through the Double-Crossing in West Rutland.
Thanks for Watching!

HO Scale Ops: Dave Acheson's Colorado Joint Line (Pt2)
Here is part two of this three part series from Dave Acheson's HO Scale Colorado Joint Line model railroad. The layout is set back in the early 70's (the date for this session was 12/08/71) so this it features a nice variety of classic paint schemes and railroads that have since faded into history.
In this part of the series, I spend more time filming the work going on at the Coors Beer plant where the guys are getting a train of box cars loaded with beer ready for the Burlington Northern to come and haul it off. With the BN only being created the year before in 1970, the green and black scheme is still fairly new, but this also means a lot of their power still wears the paint schemes of their previous owners. Like the red and gray CB&Q locomotive M.U.'d with the BN unit.
Anyway, the third and final part will be up next week, and beyond that, I really don't know. Haven't planned that far ahead yet. Safe bet it'll be something from the train club though. That's about it for now, thanks for watching and see you later!

ABOUT THIS FEED:
Revelstoke, British Columbia, Canada, in the Canadian Rockies, is located on the Canadian Pacific Railway (CP), where their Shuswap Sub meets their Mountain Sub. The Shuswap Sub runs to the west to Kamloops, BC (towards Vancouver, BC), and the Mountain Sub runs to the east to Field, BC, through Rogers Pass.
The CP traverses the Canadian Rockies over 2 passes. Rogers Pass, which is to the immediate east of Revelstoke, and further east, Kicking Horse Pass, which is to the immediate east of Field. Rogers Pass is at 4,360 feet (1,330 meters), and Kicking Horse Pass is at 5,339 feet (1,627 meters). To the west of Revelstoke is the lower Eagle Pass, at 1,804 feet (550 meters).
Among the freight trains seen here are unit potash, unit grain, and unit coal. Loaded westbounds feature both mid-train and end-of-train DPU’s, and empty eastbounds have fewer engines, both on front and as DPU’s. Many but not all eastbounds will stop to enter the yard, which is located to the east of the museum and cameras. Also seen are manifests, intermodal, and combined intermodal/manifest..
On occasion, the gates will activate, but will soon after deactivate, with no train, which is due to the switcher in the yard proceeding far forward enough to enter the crossing's track circuit.
There are no VIA Rail passenger trains through Revelstoke, however, during part of the year the Rocky Mountaineer can be seen.
There are 2 ATCS layouts, one for each sub, but there is no server coverage. No radio feeds are available.
There’s no schedule for freight trains, but some of our more knowledgeable members will provide real-time information when it’s available. Please refrain from asking.
