700-0003 RAILFANNING HOTSPOT'S VOLUME THREE ALTOONA & THE HORSESHOE CURVE 2011
Altoona, Pennsylvania is one of the best train watching spots in the United States! With the World Famous Horseshoe Curve and Downtown Altoona on the busy Norfolk Southern Pittsburgh Division, there is
always a lot of action! With steady traffic (More than 50 trains a day), long heavy trains with helper units fighting the tough grades help make this mountain railroading at it's best! We capture action from the Horseshoe curve as trains struggle with the tough grades both East and West bound! Then we set up in Downtown Altoona to capture action from locals, helpers and through freights! We also see Amtrak trains as they approach downtown Altoona station! We also capture a local freight with a long train and a sole SW1500 as a helper!
All this action is on a two DVD set!
