DT&I VOLUME 1 / GREEN FROG

Volume 1 begins with Henry Ford’s railroad in the 1920’s, and his building of the DT&I. Then the program continues with famed rail photographer Emery Gulash’s 16mm color photography of the railroad in the 1960’s.

We’ll see first and second generation diesels, at Toledo, Detroit, Ironton, and many more locations. Then in the early to mid 80’s, videographer Steve Neff began following the DT&I and captured its intergration with the Grand Trunk Railroad on professional video.

DT&I VOLUME 2 / GREEN FROG

During the early to mid 80’s video photographer Steve Neff captured action on the old DT&I as it merged into the Grand Trunk Railroad. All the mainline action from Glen Jean, Ohio to Flat Rock, Michigan can be found in this video.

Volume 2 takes over where Volume 1 left off, and follows the railroad after the merger with the Grand Trunk in late 1983.

The first portion of this video deals with films taken by Fr. Dale Peterka of the Cincinnati area. You’ll see street running in Newport, Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio, views of the L&N’s Decoursey Yard, bridge crossings over the Ohio River and much more. Fr. Dale then takes us north for a quick look at Quincy, Ohio where the DT&I crosses Conrail’s (former NYC) mainline at grade.

The second part of this video was shot at Waverly, Ohio in the mid-80’s by Steve Neff. Watch the DT&I/GT trains maneuver into the N&W interchange yard at Waverly, visit Gregg’s Hill which many railfans consider one of the most scenic train watching spots in southern Ohio, then see the DT&I backing their long trains (caboose first) all the way to Waverly while trains on the C&O and N&W make cameo appearances.

DT&I / GT SERIES VOLUME 5

The time frame of this video takes place in 1993 and 1995. The Canadian National North America, the parent company of the Grand Trunk, was desperately trying to spin off their former DT&I Gateway to Cincinnati Line. “The Good Track Road: did not apply in this era.

In 1995 most of the track was slow-ordered to cut their losses to a minimum. Ties, ballast, and rail replacement were non-existent. Only if something on the right-ofway was broken or presented a hazard was the plant repaired. One of the benefits of this slow-order program was that it gave railfans more opportunity to photograph the same train in numerous locations.

Neff Video was able to capture more runbys than normal during this period. Most of the action in Volume 5 of the DT&I/GT Series takes place between Fairborn and Hamler, Ohio. Other locations included are: Enon, Snyderville, Maitland, Tremont, Thackery, Quincy, St. Johns, Sugar Street (Lima), DT&I Jct., Columbus Grove, Ottawa, and Leipsic. 90 minutes, color, sound, on-screen graphics depict locations and train symbols and no narration.

Approx: 90 Minutes - Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo
