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!

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!

BC RAIL

Ref: D150


Price: £21.00

by Highball Productions 120 mins * colour * narrated * PAL

BC's auto tag says "beautiful British Columbia". BC Rail, formerly the British Columbia Railway and Pacific Great Eastern, is unique amongst railroads, both large and small. Its trains are led by a fleet of GE C40-8 CMs, a model only found in Canada. It runs through spectacular and varied scenery26000 revenue car loads on a system that can be divided into two sections, the North Vancouver to Prince George and north of Prince George where a number of lines feed the mainline. In this tape we concentrate on the Vancouver to Prince George mainline.

We travelled the 1800 miles to North Vancouver in August 1997 to fulfil a long time personal ambition. We got a quick look at a rebuilt RS18 switching the yard, a brief look at the Royal Hudson along Howe Sound, then concentrated on the freights. The big GE C40-8CM cowls are very much in evidence and look handsome. The scenery, especially north of Lillooet in the Fraser River Valley, is just magnificent and we got some great shots of trains clinging to the canyon walls, to river banks and lake shores. They looked really good snaking in and out from between the bluffs. We got into most of the famous locations, Britannia, Squamish, Cheakamus, Green River, Tisdall, Birken, Darcy, Seton Lake, Lilloet, Polley, Fountain, Gibbs, Glenfrazer, Pavillion, Moran, Kelly Lake and lots more. We were thrilled to find a pair of C420s switching at Prince George and took a quick trip to Tacheed for a look at the electrics. A very interesting railroad in magnificent scenery. You'll like it as much as we did.

Price: £21.00

Montana Rail Link in the heart of the Big Sky Country is the operator of the old 582 mile long Northern Pacific line across Montana. Full of breathtaking scenery and hard mountain grades, it now forms a unique link in the Burlington Northern Santa Fe mainline. A lot of heavy freight is routed over the steeply graded line.

We traveled the length of the MRL in February 1997, braving cold and snow to bring you exciting action of one of regional railroading's finest. We take you through the blowing snows of Bozeman Pass with GP9s and C44-9Ws to the curves and steep grades of the legendary Mullan Pass, from the bleakness of Winston Hill to the scenic splendor of the Clark Fork and the semaphores of Lake Pend Oreille. There is lots of different power battling the elements from MRL's GP9s, SD19s, F45s, SD45s, SD45-2s to BNSF's "Pumpkins" and "Warbonnets". by Highball 120 mins * colour * narrated

Winter on Kicking Horse Pass

Winter on Kicking Horse Pass

Ref: D137


Price: £21.00

We set off for Kicking Horse Pass in February 1997 after one of the coldest periods on record. Happily it warmed up a little for our visit, relatively speaking. There was still plenty of snow about, but with blue skies and sun the whole area looked stunning.

Kicking Horse Pass is Canadian Pacific's crossing of the Great Divide in Canada's Rocky Mountains, the highest railroad summit in Canada. It runs through some of the most spectacular scenery in North America. We shot at the two most famous rail locations on the continent, Morant's Curve and the Spiral Tunnels - and many more stunning locations full of action, but regretfully one of the vagrancies of winter shooting was a ten foot snow drift that prevented us getting to the conventional shot of the tunnels. However join us for an exciting winter journey as we chase Action Red SD 40-2s through the heart of the Rocky Mountains from Banff, Alberta through Lake Louise and over Kicking Horse Pass, through the Spiral Tunnels to Field, then through Kicking Horse Valley to Golden, British Columbia.

2 DISC SET

What a wonderful area the Pacific North West is. Earlier in 1996 we flew to Portland OR and worked from Troutdale to Hinkle on the Union Pacific and from Cape Horn Tunnel to near Pasco on Burtington Northern Santa Fe. Access was pretty good on both sides of the river, except that UP was by the Interstate. We were amazed at the scenery; from rain forest near Portland to the high desert, also the weather; rain at the coast to dry inland.

We caught UP's E units on the Office Car Special from the BNSF side of the river and chased him. He was hitting the detectors at 80 mph. The only reason we got a shot was because he was slowed for a meet near one of the dams. What a pretty train though. Good job the State trooper was busy! We were pleased to find cabooses on BNSF, these are on the trains that cross the Columbia at Wishram and turn south to Klamath Falls.

On several occasions we managed to get trains on both sides of the river into the picture. Eleven days of shooting went into this dvd, over seven hours of footage. We got some really nice shots. There is some beautiful lighting and some fabulous scenery. SD60Ms, C40s and SD40-2s predominate on UP and SD40-2s and GP40s on the BNSF. Not much sign of the merger except a couple of warbonnets.

Price: £22.95

UP over the former Western Pacific between SaIt Lake City and Winnemucca, including the paired track with SP (pre merger) through Palisade Canyon.

You can see westbounds 13 or 14 miles away, then they round the loop and head over Silver Zone Pass. We Followed the line through the sage brush to Hogan tunnel, then across tine desert (VERY lonely) to Wells, Palisade Canyon and Wininemucca.

The Tracks of the BLACK BEAR

The Algoma Central, rich in history and renowned for its rugged scenery. Affectionately known as the "Tracks of the Black Bear", the ACR provides a vital link in the movement of freight and is one of North America's most popular passenger roads. After operating as an independent railway since 1899, the Algoma Central became part of Wisconsin Central's family of regional railways in 1995. Along with this change came revised operating practices, different motive power and new business. Rail Innovations captures the 'new' Algoma Central during both the beauty of fall and the harshness of winter. You'll be onboard and trackside as WC SD-45s and AC F-units move freight and passenger trains across Algoma Country. Wisconsin Central's Algoma Central is mainline railroading through some of North America's most spectacular scenery.

Where else in the U.S. can one find so much railroad action but in Chicago...especially in the 50's and 60's!

World respected rail photographer Emery Gulash began capturing prolific amounts of action in and near the Chicago area from the early 50's.

In the mid-fifties, to be a railfan in Chicago, there was no limit to the majestic views of railroads, Exotic first generation diesels, sparkling consists of the new streamlined passenger trains, well maintained trackwork...these were all the things that truly excited the railfan of that time...and Emery Gulash was no exception.

Filmed in crisp, bright 16mm color, witness the end of steam on a few roads and the birth of the diesel as the mainstay of power for freight and passenger.

If there ever was a documentary of rail action in and around Chicago, this has to be it! Typical incredible Gulash photography, coupled with the Frog's fast paced editing make this Volume 1 a collectors item you've just got to have!

* 2hrs * colour * dolby digital stereo * narration muting * chapter search * picture gallery

Following in the footsteps of the incredible and highly successful first Santa Fe Odyssey comes volume 2. The first volume was filmed over a 23 year period. Volume 2 takes over where the first volume left off. Filmed in the late 1970s over a 23 day period, Emery Gulash captured the transition of the Santa Fe as it aligned itself for the 1980s and 1990s. Coverage starts in illinois and continues west to include California. Amtrak is now firmly entrenched and so you will see plenty of passenger trains and with its new second generation diesels there are Santa Fe freights galore, including some of the older transitory diesel paint and colour schemes. There is incredible action in the Mid-West and West, all photographed with the benefit of consistently bright crisp and well colour balanced 16mm film. Action at Cajon Pass and Tehachapi are typical Gulash: incredible coverage and photo composition - there is none better! Compelling viewing and an important documentary of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe in the 1970s.

Our first proper railroad DVD is a completely re-edited version of an old classic - right back to the original source material!

"Better than VHS as day is to night"

The action on this DVD is a result of many railfan trips by noted rail photographer Emery Gulash who, from Chicago to the West, produced an incredible chronology of the Santa Fe over a 30 year span from 1952 to 1980!

As Emery says: "To me the Santa Fe was unique with its outstanding passenger trains, fast freights, great trackage and a great display of semaphore signals. It was the epitome of long distance railroads. So I spent much footage at many different locations enjoying the action and character of this great railroad.

For this film Emery assembled all of those pleasant encounters, FT freight units, PA passenger power and a variety of switchers and road trains. The Warbonnet paint scheme and the change to the blue scheme is also covered. There are a great number of incredible shots of the famous passenger fleet, interspersed with freights over a vast portion of the line. A collectors item
