QUEBEC & LABRADOR + NEWFOUNDLAND

10.00

This the third of four volumes of SPV's COMPREHENSIVE RAILROAD ATLAS OF NORTH AMERICA covering Canada and includes the provinces of Quebec and Newfoundland & Labrador.

The Atlas shows all currently operated common carrier, tourist and major industrial railroads along with abandoned routes. Lines shown as electrified or narrow gauge are shown only as such when they are currently so equipped or were at abandonment. Lines built as narrow or broad gauge and subsequently regauged are shown as standard gauge. It should be noted that some lines shown as "in service" may see very infrequent use whilst some "abandoned" lines may, if the tracks remain in place, be reactivated for a special movement.

Every effort has been made to show all current operating locations as defined in railroad operating timetables.

KICKING HORSE PASS Canadian Pacific's Laggan Sub

KICKING HORSE PASS Canadian Pacific's Laggan Sub

22.00

The southern Canadian Rockies are a breathtaking spectacle shouldering the Continental Divide and boundary of British Columbia and Alberta, Canada. Topped with glaciers and surrounded by emerald lakes and rivers, their beauty is beyond pictures or words.

For those who built the Canadian Pacific, these mountains were the ultimate obstacle to overcome. The route they chose was the difficult ascent over Kicking Horse Pass. Known to railroaders as "The Big Hill", Canadian Pacific trains have been climbing this grade since 1884 and it is still an amazing sight today!

Beginning at Field, BC, we follow the Laggan Sub east to Exshaw, Alberta. Watch trains battle the 2.2% grade above the Kicking Horse River, pass through the incredible Spiral Tunnels, and sprint along the bank of the scenic Bow River. See 10,000 foot stack trains, unit grain, potash, and mixed manifests. We also catch The Rocky Mountaineer, Canada's premiere passenger train. There's nothing like mountain railroading in the Canadian Rockies!

This program was shot in June, September, and October 2014.

Rio Grande Narrow Gauge in the 1950's

Rio Grande Narrow Gauge in the 1950's

20.00

Mountains and narrow gauge railroads are two things that worked well together years ago. One of the more notable of those narrow gauge railroads belonged to the Rio Grande. In this video, C. Vision presents the Rio Grande Narrow Gauge in the 1950's from the films of George Niles.

On his journeys to Colorado, George captured a variety of standard gauge action, including the Santa Fe, Colorado & Southern and standard gauge Rio Grande scenes.

In Durango, our narrow gauge journey begins. Here we see the spectacular trains and scenery of the line from Durango to Silverton from both trackside and on board.

Next, we view a pair of "Cumbres Turns" with K-36 #483 and K-37 #490 in charge. These trains ran to and from Chama, New Mexico and Cumbres, Colorado.

Then it's off to Salida, Colorado for our last segment. This is where we begin to see some great scenes of the Monarch Turn from Salida to the CF&I Limestone Quarry. Locations on this line include Maysville and the Garfield Switch Back.

This video includes a big portion of the Rio Grande narrow gauge fleet. 2-8-2's in the K-27, K-28, K-36 and K-37 class are shown along with US Army diesel 4700N, that was tested by the Rio Grand in 1954.

Combine awesome Rocky Mountain scenery with classic narrow gauge railroading...and you have an incredible combination of railroading so unique...you have to see it to believe it! Don't miss The Rio Grande Narrow Gauge in the 1950's.
