Product Description

The cross-country train epic is now on DVD!

A coast-to-coast trip from Washington, DC to San Francisco aboard Amtrak's Capitol Limited and California Zephyr. See our nation's capitol, lush Ohio Amish Farmlands, the Great Plains, the Rockies and Sierras, before skirting along side San Pablo Bay and on into Oakland and San Francisco.

Along the way visit the following steam and diesel tourist railroads: Strasburg Railroad, Potomac Eagle, Western Maryland Scenic Railroad, Ohio Central, Boone & Scenic Valley, Omaha Zoo Railroad, Durango & Silverton, Heber valley, Virginia & Truckee, Napa Valley Wine Train, Roaring Camp & Big Trees, and Santa Cruz Trees & Pacific.

Includes music composed especially for this program by noted television composer Micheal Lynch, as well as lots of natural train sounds.

The VHS version of this program has sold nearly 200,000 copies, so now you can enjoy the crisp picture and stereo sound on DVD!

Total running time 2hours.

From the Contributor

America By Rail was one of the most rewarding projects that I have ever worked on. The United States is enormous, and to see it from one end to the other over the course of the shooting of this program was a real treat. For those who can't make the trip themselves, it is the wish of the producers that this program can fill that void.
