This is not your ordinary "rail fan" video. It is an intimate, insider's view of Commuter rail operations in the MYC area, as experienced by a team of METRA Commuter Rail operations professionals who visited the NYC region from May 15 - 18, 2001.
Come with us as we tour control centers, towers, yards and stations. Ride the "head end" with us as we take trips on MNRR, LIRR and NJT. Ride diesel electric push-pull, 3rd rail, overhead catenary, and dual mode diesels. See double deck coaches on the LIRR built especially to fit the East River Tunnel, and much more.
Part 1 covers Penn Station, MNRR New Haven Division, Port Jefferson Ferry and LIRR.
Part 2 covers Grand Central Station, MNRR Hudson Division and NJT NE Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line.
Over 2 hours! Includes some never before seen video footage. All on one DVD.
