ACROSS the UTAH DESERT

ACROSS the UTAH DESERT

21.00

The Book Cliffs rise above the desert floor of eastern Utah stretching 200 miles between the Wasatch Mountains and Colorado's De Beque Canyon. The towering rock faces set the backdrop for the former Denver and Rio Grande Western's Desert Mainline, known today as Union Pacific's Green River Sub.

Running between Grand Junction, Colorado and Helper, Utah, this lesser known route is often overlooked by railfans, yet it offers great railroading action through some of the most incredible scenery you'll find anywhere!

Join 7idea Productions as we take you on an amazing journey through a land few get to see. Hike into Ruby Canyon and catch Amtrak's California Zephyr rolling beneath giant sandstone cliffs. Watch heavy coal trains climbing the grade at Thompson Cut. The scenic highlight of the trip is our tour of the thirty-seven mile Cane Creek Branch near Moab, Utah between Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. The ageless setting of the American West overshadows any train that runs through here.

Union Pacific, BNSF, Amtrak, and even the Utah Railway make an appearance as we uncover one of the best kept secret railfan locations in the west! Join us as we travel Across the Utah Desert on Union Pacific's Green River Sub.

1 hour 58 minutes * WIDESCREEN DVD * May be viewed with or without narration.

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!

ROGERS PASS

ROGERS PASS

22.00

CANADIAN PACIFIC'S Mountain Sub

The Selkirk Mountains touch the sky at over 11,000 feet in southeastern British Columbia, Canada. Encircled by the Columbia River and dressed in a richly forested garment, the sheer jagged peaks produce an aura of beauty and danger.

Deep within the heart of these mountains, a transcontinental rail line passes through two different tunnels: the five mile long Connaught Tunnel and the nine mile long Mount Macdonald Tunnel, which is the longest railway tunnel in the western hemisphere. This is Canadian Pacific's route over Roger's Pass!

Between Revelstoke and Field, the Mountain Sub lives up to its name with stiff grades of 2.4% that burrow under dangerous avalanche zones. Part of CP's 3,000 mile trans- continental line from Montreal to Vancouver, the Mountain Sub sees high priority intermodal trains, unit grain trains, 152 car coal trains, monster 170 car potash trains, and Canada's premiere passenger train, The Rocky Mountaineer.

A combination of fantastic Canadian scenery and hard-working trains is what this program is all about!
