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.

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

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!

BNSF ON THE BANKS OF THE MISSISSIPPI

BNSF ON THE BANKS OF THE MISSISSIPPI

Ref: D361


Price: 21.00

Come along with C. Vision Productions and tour the St. Croix Subdivision of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe. We document the St. Croix Sub as it follows the Mississippi River from La Crosse, Wisconsin to St. Croix Junction south of St. Paul, Minnesota. This mostly double track main line is a part of the BNSF's northern Transcontinental Mainline from Chicago to the Pacific Northwest. With the addition of the major hub of Minneapolis and St. Paul, this line has plenty of high speed railroad action!

Watch 60 mile per hour intermodal trains waste no time hauling high priority freight. Other mainline general freight trains and grain trains also make their way along the St. Croix Sub. You will be amazed by the variety of motive power. Older SD-40 dash 2's are still common. General Electric Dash 9-44CW's and newer GE ES-44DC's also head up trains in both the Heritage 2 and the new "Swoosh" style paint schemes. We also capture ex-Santa Fe GE power including Dash 8-40BW's!

This subdivision is full of spectacular scenery. Sit back as we take you high atop of Buena Vista Park in Alma, Wisconsin. This location provides an awesome vantage point to watch trains rolling through this picturesque river town. We also capture several trains crossing the St. Croix River lift bridge in Prescott, Wisconsin. The Mississippi River valley provides an array of tree covered bluffs creating beautiful backdrops for the numerous trains that travel this line.

Combining the natural beauty of the Mississippi River valley, and the images of BNSF trains, this video is one that you will want to watch again and again!

Trains across the Midwest

Trains across the Midwest

Ref: D358


Price: 21.00

The Midwest is full of railroad action with Short Lines, Regionals and the big Class One's!

In this volume we first travel to southeastern Nebraska. Here we capture Union Pacific trains in and around the community of Davenport. Trains led with C44AC-CTE's, SD90-43AC's and SD-60M's are seen traveling through this scenic section of the U.R's Marysville Subdivision.

Then it's off to western Minnesota. On the border of Fargo, North Dakota is the city of Moorhead. It is here that the BNSF's KO and Prosper Subdivisions join at a point called Moorhead Junction. This busy spot hosts numerous BNSF trains on a daily basis. Along with main line freights and coal trains, many yard jobs and transfers use this junction to get to and from the large yard in the adjacent town of Dilworth, MN. From rebuilt GP-30's to the new SD-70ACe's, you will be treated to some great BNSF trains at this location!

Finally, we head a little further north to catch the action on a newly formed shoreline. The Dakota Northern operates over ex-BNSF tracks from Grafton to Walhalla, North Dakota. We capture this line only months after its birth to watch as rebuilt GP- 10's take care of moving grain, potatoes, coal and ethanol. The railroad even treated us to adding the Minnesota Northern's caboose to the train!

Awesome mainline action, diverse Short Lines and Regionals make the Midwest one of the best places to watch trains. C.Vision takes you there in "Trains Across the Midwest"

Santa Fe Vintage West

Ref: D345


Price: 21.00

We bring back the Santa Fe with great action in many So.Cal. locations. This parade of power over the decades is a tribute to one of the most popular western railroads of all time. The scenes are taken from old movie film shot by many railfans. The material from the early 90s was shot on video before the end of the Santa Fe as an independent company.

The paint schemes shown are all the phases from the early black with white stripes and beautiful passenger F-units with freight bluebonnet power and the later yellow bonnets.

*1950s-94 *Tehachapi *Cajon Pass *Needles Sub *Stockton *Eastbay

The video of the 90s shows a revival of the red & silver warbonnet theme that the Santa Fe used to reclaim all the public recognition that their service deserved.

Many of the video scenes were selected from our retired videos on Cajon, Tehachapi and the Needles Subdivision. They represent a composite of the very best pre-merger Santa Fe scenes shot with multiple cameras. It's really amazing that the Santa Fe has been gone for over a decade now. We hope this video will renew your interest in her.

PENN CENTRAL 3

Ref: D331


Price: 20.00

HERITAGE SERIES FROM THE CAMERA OF EMERY GULASH

Things were a little different on the Penn Central during every one of the eight years of its brief existence. By mid 1971, nearly all the locomotives of the predecessor Pennsylvania and New York Central railroads had been repainted into sombre dark, dark Brunswick green. The railroad was mired deeper and deeper in bankruptcy, as a new national rail passenger carrier, Amtrak, was starting to emerge from the dark shadows of the PC's paint scheme following its launching on May 1st, 1971.

Emery Gulash had his movie cameras trained on the rail action. He starts with a series of scenes in America's Railroad Capital, Chicago, as Amtrak and Penn Central trains burnish the rails in and out of Union Station. The old Michigan Central depot at Detroit serves as an anchor for Emery, as he returns again and again from his travels to photograph trains at the formidable structure.

Amtrak demonstrates its United Aircraft Turbotrain at Niles and Kalamazoo. Toledo comes in for its share of pulsating train operations, as do Ypsilanti, Dearborn, Jackson, Chelsea, New Buffalo, Ann Arbor, Westland, and Delphi Mills, Michigan. Our very full program winds up with scenes of two special passenger trains operated in November 1972 by the Chessie System for General Motors executives bound for a business conference in West Virginia.

The 'i' means isolated cab which makes them much quieter and more comfortable. Join the engineer as we travel the Temagami Sub. Learn how the snow and cold affect the operations and see the train lineside as it travels through this picturesque part of Ontario. This is a fascinating insight into the Ontario Northland Railway. by Chandos Television * 65 mins * colour * narrated
