Canada's FRASER CANYON

Canada's FRASER CANYON

21.00

Travel with 7idea Productions to beautiful British Columbia, Canada where both Canadian Pacific and Canadian National traverse the rugged Fraser Canyon. Cutting a deep swath through the Cascade Range, this is an important link in the trans-Canada rail network connecting Vancouver with Montreal.

This program follows each line's course along opposite banks of the Fraser River between Hope and the confluence with the Thompson River at Lytton. These competing railways operate jointly in the canyon. Eastbounds use Canadian Pacific's Cascade and Thompson Subdivisions, while westbounds travel over Canadian National's Ashcroft and Yale Subs.

One of the many highlights of the canyon are the Cisco Bridges where both railways cross the river with the CN flying over the CP. Our summer and winter visits reveal the grand seasonal contrast of the canyon's appearance. Add to that a great variety of trains from hot shot intermodals, to coal, grain, potash, mixed merchandise, and the Rocky Mountaineer and you will know why railfans the world over love visiting Canada's Fraser Canyon! This program was shot between July 2016 and January 2017.

Classic Burlington Northern, Volume 1

Classic Burlington Northern, Volume 1

19.00

The Burlington Northern Railroad was the product of a March 2nd, 1970, merger of four major railroads, the Great Northern Railway, Northern Pacific Railway, Spokane, Portland and Seattle Railway and the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad. In this series, we feature the films of Fred Crissey, who traveled to many areas along the BN's route in the central United States in the late 1970's and 1980's with his 8-millimeter movie film camera.

In Volume 1, Fred travels to the states of Wyoming, Montana, Washington, Illinois, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas.

Cascade green and black locomotives are seen in such locations as Wyoming's Wind River Canyon, Montana's Bozeman and Mullen Pass and Skykomish, Washington. You have to see the action Fred captured while riding in a suburban commuter train between Aurora and Chicago, Illinois when the BN was using their fleet of E-9's. We finish the show along the Foothills of the Rocky Mountains and follow the old Colorado & Southern and the Fort Worth & Denver between Trinidad, Colorado and Dalhart, Texas.

This program showcases the BN at a time when they were growing and expanding since the 1970 merger. If you are a fan of the Cascade Green, you won't want to miss Classic Burlington Northern, Volume 1!

Canada's THOMPSON CANYON

Canada's THOMPSON CANYON

21.00

The Thompson River cuts through the rugged country of south central British Columbia, Canada. Its wild and scenic course proved to be the best route for building a transcontinental railway and today is used by both the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National.

Continuing the journey that began in Canada's Fraser Canyon, we follow the Thompson River for 95 miles between Lytton and Kamloops. Both railways operate jointly over much of the territory with eastbounds using Canadian Pacific's Thompson Subdivision and westbounds using Canadian National's Ashcroft Sub.

Shot in both summer and winter, the stunning scenery and stark seasonal contrast is enhanced by the sight and sound of heavy main line trains. Massive coal, grain, and potash trains share the rails with long double stacks and mixed manifests. Canada's Rocky Mountaineer adds to the wide variety of trains. CN's new Tier 4 GE's are viewed working along side classic cowl bodied C-40-8M's! Illinois Central and BC Rail units create an interesting assortment of motive power along with Canadian Pacific's fleet of modern GE's. This is your front row seat to Canada's Thompson Canyon!

This program was shot between July 2016 and January 2017.

Price: 7.00

The Toledo interurbans last ran in December 1949. The interurbans were a great loss to a city that was a major transportation hub in its own right. They would be replaced by buses, but nothing could replace the feeling of riding a trolley to work or taking the family to a movie by trolley. Today there is very little that remains of the interurban lines. Sometimes the old rails are visible when street repairs are being made. Toledo Trolleys was written to preserve the rich history of the trolleys that served citizens faithfully for many years.

Ref: UPW


Price: 9.00

This book picks up where Kansas Central Narrow Gauge leaves off in telling the history of the rail line that ran from Leavenworth to Miltonvale, Kansas. A few years after converting from narrow gauge to standard gauge, the Union Pacific-controlled Kansas Central was purchased at a foreclosure auction for $200,000 and rechristened the Leavenworth, Kansas & Western, with plans to expand the line to the western border of Kansas and northward into Nebraska. But financial woes dogged the line and in 1908 it was sold to the Union Pacific. Improved highway transportation and losses spurred by the Great Depression caused the UP to abandon nearly all of the LK&W line in 1935
