Baltimore and Ohio DVD
The peak of steam power on the B&O captured in gloriously clear color by world class cinematographer Guy Brant. B&O steam in the '40s & '50s.
Watch the heyday of Baltimore & Ohio steam.
Extraordinary historic footage features streamlined Pacifics, switchers, Q-4's and both B&O and C&O mallets, but it concentrates on the culmination of B&O steam locomotive design: the T-3 Mountain. The Brants were up in time to catch the Capitol Limited when it came racing through the golden haze of summer dawn. It was well below zero when they captured a volcano plume of winter exhaust against a steely blue sky. This feature paces the streamlined "Cincinnatian" under steam, and shows branch lines, wrecks, and EM-1 mallets. EM-1s are then contrasted with the C&O's giant 2-6-6-6s. Real railroading, exactly as it was: more than 200 run pasts, pacing shots and double headers.
