Green Frog is good production company. I've got two of their videos, one on the CSX KP Sub (Clinchfield) and one on the LCL Sub. Both are excellent productions, and the KP Sub DVD has the option to cut out the narration if you'd like.

Pentrex is another company where you'll be able to find DVD's on all the Class 1 Railroads in the United States. They have videos of fallen flag railroads too. I own a few of their productions, and highly recommend "The American Railroad Collection". It's a collection of 8 different informational, training, and safety videos produced by the AAR and major railroads between the 50's and 70's. You can check their site out at www.pentrex.com.

T&W productions is one that I have just recently become aware of. A lot of their videos cover the action in the southeastern United States. They just released a DVD on NS's Harriman Junction. It's a decent video and relatively informative. An interesting side note about it is that I took the photo that's on the cover (Thanks Railpictures.net!). You can check out T&W's site at http://www.twproductionsvideos.com/

I will have to say that out of the bigger producers, green frog has about the best content. I wouldnt buy a Pentrex program for anything...to much usless chatter and to many mistakes. They made a tape about the 2nd district of the CNO&TP several years ago, and it is just plain BAD, almost to the point of being funny. Locations identified wrong, trains numbers and info wrong and so on and so forth...I will watch it every now and then when i need a good laugh...what a joke!

Some sites are - www.mcmillanpublications.com , www.train-video.com , and www.a-trains.com .
