Into the 90s - THE GRAND TRUNK WESTERN - Volume 5
Volume 5 follows the former Detroit Toledo Shoreline Route from Delray Tower in Detroit to Lang Yard in Toledo. Locations visited include Delray, Ecorse, Wyandotte, Trenton, Monroe, and more! Also, an in-depth look at coal handling procedures at Detroit Edisons Monroe Power Plant is featured. This power plant, served by GT and Conrail as well as lakeboats, receives over 9 million tons of coal per year by rail and uses rotary dumpers, conveyors, bulldozers and scrapers to get the coal where its needed. See all this, plus rail-grinding and track-laying from the sub-roadbed up, exciting GT action and run-through power from the Burlington Northern and Union Pacific. As reviewed in Trains Magazine...a program with nearly universal appeal! 120 minutes, color with audio and narration, DVD-R format.
