Videos for B&O Passenger Trains?

  • I read a favorable report on the A&R DVD, "Northesat Steam." and wonder if anyone has viewed it recently and can recall the approximate  time devoted to B&O passenger service between Baltimore-Washington and Pittsburgh?  I believe the total length is on the order of 46-50 minutes.

    Are there other videos that treat B&O passenger trains from the late steam-to-final service (diesel) period? 

    Any thoughts on a dependable source for second-hand videos, other than ebay?

  • Googlin 'B&O Steam Videos'  gives quite a online selection.

  • I believe Herron Rail Video have a number of titles concerning the B&O.  Herron's videos are top-notch, by the way.  Not cheap, but you do get your money's worth, trust me.

  • I recently stumbled on some 1954 vintage B&O video which you might be interested in. It's not the best quality but it was filmed in and around Confluence. http://www.american-rails.com/baltimore-and-ohio.html
