Through the Oregon Cascades Part 1: The Long Grade

Through the Oregon Cascades Part 1: The Long Grade

22.00

The Cascade Mountains of western Oregon are thick with tall timber growing along steep slopes broken by waterfalls and streams. This is the setting for a mountain railroad that climbs from deep within the Willamette Valley to nearly 5,000 feet above sea level at Cascade Summit.

Part 1: The Long Grade, begins at Eugene Yard and heads railroad south into the foothills of the Cascades. A forty mile 1.8% grade between Oakridge and Cascade Summit puts UP's newest locomotives to the test and keeps train crews on their toes. The line wraps around horse shoe curves, crosses trestles, and disappears through numerous rock sheds and tunnels before reaching the top of the pass.

In this highly anticipated follow up to "Union Pacific's Cascade Sub," we hike deeper into the most remote parts of the line and visit ground zero of the Frazier Slide which closed the railroad for three months in 2008. This is one of the most rugged portions of the I-5 Corridor which links the Pacific Northwest with California!

Shot in beautiful hi-definition between 2008 and 2015 in all seasons, this is the ultimate journey through the Oregon Cascades!

Canada's YELLOWHEAD PASS

Canada's YELLOWHEAD PASS

23.00

At 3,711 feet above sea level and with gradual approaches on both sides, Yellowhead Pass is the ideal railway passage of Canada's Rocky Mountains.

Canadian National utilizes this strategic crossing of the continental divide marking the provincial boundary of British Columbia and Alberta. The railway is busy with intermodal traffic heading to and from west coast ports of Vancouver and Prince Rupert, BC. The rails stay polished with unit grain and coal trains heading for export, numerous mixed merchandise trains, and Via Rail passenger trains sporting sleek silver dome cars.

See this incredibly beautiful line from Hinton, Alberta, to Red Pass, British Columbia. A good deal of the route traverses the picturesque setting of Jasper National Park. 7idea Productions made two trips to the Yellowhead Country and our cameras captured its natural beauty in both summer and winter.

SD40-2 Survivors Volume 3

SD40-2 Survivors Volume 3

21.00

In January 1972, EMD introduced the SD40-2. The SD40-2 and its 645 prime mover have operated on railroads for nearly 50 years. Once superior main line power, it has been overtaken by more efficient computerized engines. Trains featured in this program all have SD40-2's leading in all kinds of service from the years 2013-2017.

Volume 3 includes BNSF, Canadian Pacific, Union Pacific, Canadian National and CSX trains in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, South Dakota, North Dakota and Indiana. In 2016, CP eliminated nearly all of their SD40-2's from their roster. C. Vision was in the right place at the right time to capture 3 of the remaining 40-2's pulling CP trains in Minnesota. Do you love that MRL blue? Montana Rail Link 40-2's made their way east leading BNSF trains and we were there to record those on the Wayzata Sub! Run through power from RCP&E, DM&E and IC&E are captured on CP trains in the Chicago area. Aside from the Class One's, you will also enjoy the sights and sounds of a few short lines and regionals including "Dakota and Iowa", "Rapid City, Pierre and Eastern" and "Indiana Railroad".

The SD40-2 will always be remembered for its reliability! Its prime mover and large platforms gave this engine a signature sound and look. You can always keep the memories of this locomotive forever in SD40-2 Survivors, Volume 3!
