|Travel the World By Train: Europe 2
Lowest new price: $149.99
Lowest used price: $17.00
Travel five continents in a 55 country rail trip in this ten part series. On this journey, we travel from Paris through Loire and Bordeaux. Spain through the Basque Provinces; Luxembourg and Belgium and finally through Holland, Sweden, Norway and Finland.
The second European volume in the Travel the World by Train series is a grab bag of locations from western Portugal to northern Finland, at the edge of the Arctic Circle. The first trip departs from Paris and traverses the Loire region of France. This line might well be called the "Castle Express." Then one boards the super-fast TGV to the province of Bordeaux, producer of arguably the world's finest wine. Ancient Roman history permeates the very air here. Another train runs through France's Basque country, passing the resort town of Biarritz, a favorite surfing spot. We cross a bridge into Spain and we're now in Spanish Basque country, in the picturesque Pyrenees Mountains. One of the more affecting Spanish sites is the town of Guernica, destroyed by Nazis in 1937 and immortalized in Picasso's powerful painting of the same name.
After journeys through Portugal, it's on to Luxembourg, Belgium, and Holland. Memorable sites here include gorgeous Belgian Art Nouveau architecture and dazzling Dutch fields of tulips and windmills. When the train leaves Stockholm, Sweden, we are suddenly in a very different environment. The Scandinavian trains pass towering, dramatic fjords, sparkling lakes, and huge evergreen forests where reindeer run. These trips are shot in summer in a land where the sun barely sets at midnight: the effect is magical. As with all the videos in this series, the cinematography is impressive and the narration enlightening. --Laura Mirsky

|Cajon Pass / Tehachapi Loop (Railroad Lines)
Lowest new price: $29.95
List price: $29.95
These two Southern California railroading landmarks draw railfans from around the world seeking to experience the engineering ingenuity, spectacular scenery, and a steady parade of trains. Never was that more true than in 1986 when this program was originally filmed. At that time most trains still had cabooses, Southern Pacific oil cans (the "Tank Train") still ran over Tehachapi, and many Santa Fe and Southern Pacific locomotives sported the short-lived red and yellow "Kodachrome" merger paint scheme. You could still see pure sets of blue and yellow Santa Fe power, including EMD SD45s, F45s, and FP45s and GE U36Cs and C30-7s.
Southern Pacific also ran pure sets of its locomotives, including SD45s and "tunnel motors", and Amtrak ran the Southwest Chief and the Desert Wind over Cajon with F40PH locomotives. The Santa Fe dispatcher's office was still located in the San Bernardino depot, and the Mojave depot was still in use.
These are the sights of the past but you can experience them and more in this incredible show. Ride a Union Pacific helper pushing a 12,000-ton coal train over Cajon. Visit the Santa Fe dispatcher's office in the San Bernardino depot and the hump yard and locomotive servicing facilities in Barstow. Thrill to cab rides on Cajon and Tehachapi. It's all here for you to savor again!
|Whispers of Angels: A Story of the Underground Railroad
Lowest new price: $11.85
Lowest used price: $6.17
List price: $19.95
Defiant, brave and free, the great abolitionists Thomas Garrett, William Still and Harriet Tubman, along with hundreds of lesser known and nameless opponents of slavery, formed a Corridor of Courage stretching from Maryland's eastern shore through the length of Delaware to Philadelphia and beyond -- making the Underground Railroad a real route to freedom for enslaved Americans before the Civil War.
Long-format interviews with prominent historians blend with dramatic reenactment to create a powerful story about the fight to end slavery. Actors Edward Asner and Blair Underwood portray the two most prominent abolitionists on the eastern line of the Underground Railroad, Thomas Garrett and William Still.
Bearing a remarkable resemblance to Thomas Garrett, Asner reenacts the famous courtroom scene in 1848 in which Garrett foreshadows the Civil War and firmly declares to redouble his efforts in fighting for true freedom in America. In spite of the court's imposition of a crippling financial punishment, Garrett's ideals were not altered; his clandestine activities continued for many years even during the War.
Reading documented text in the form of letters exchanged by Thomas Garrett and William Still (a free black abolitionist in Philadelphia), Asner and Underwood bring to life the fascinating working relationship between the two men and those they helped. Underwood, as William Still, meets in secret with the frightened fugitives who pass through his Anti-Slavery Society Offices in Philadelphia on their dangerous journeys to the north.
