Is Video Rails Still in Business?
Author: SD80MACfan

I was wondering if the railroad video company Video Rails was still in business. I recently received my grandfather's collection of train videos and have found several of their titles. Included are two BETA tapes, "Take A Ride With Video Rails: Norfolk & Western Class J #611" and "Streamliners of Yesteryear". I want to contact them to find out if there is any way I can get digital copies of these titles or give them these titles for reproduction if not. If anyone can provide me with information it would be greatly appreciated.

Pentrex has most (all?) of Video Rails catalog.  

You can always just get them converted to DVD as well.  Most towns have a guy that does that sort of work.

Yes, Pentrex purchased Video Rails, something in the mid-1990's, I think 1993.  Since then, a LOT as changed in the railroad video market.  Highball Productions was purchased by another video producer who first took the Highball name, then purchased Pentrex and took there name.  I don't believe Pentrex produces any new videos, simply selling copies of there large catalog.
