THIS DVD CONTAINS BOTH VHS PROGRAMS 48-1 & 48-2
This program will take you on a "Head End" ride on "The Orange Blossom Special" over the R.F.& P. main line from Richmond to Potomac Yard. The train is powered by four GP-30-2 diesels headed by R.F.& P. No. 142. We board the engines at the Bryan Park engine facility and back out to pier five on the James River Bridge as we see "The Orange Blossom Special" pass as it comes off the CSX. We then proceed north from the James River Bridge, make a short stop to allow Amtrak No. 82 to go around us, proceed to Acca Yard, couple to the train, pump up the air and proceed north to Potomac Yard. During our trip you will see Amtrak passenger and R.F.& P. freights head south. After we arrive at "POT" yard you will get a trackside tour of the Bryan Park engine facility and Potomac Yard before ending with selected run-bys at various locations along the R.F.& P. main line.
