BNSF’s MOJAVE MAIN LINE
By 7idea Productions

BNSF’s Needles Subdivision travels 170 miles through one of the hottest and driest places in North America: The Mojave Desert. Between Barstow and Needles, California, the double track main line follows the rough contours of a land that is anything but flat. Modern locomotives fight an age old battle with gravity through several miles of 1.4% grades. The wide open vistas of the desert produce great views of long trains twisting through its many curves. The lonely mile posts pass old ghost towns slowly succumbing to the desert and mysterious station names like Klondike, Siberia and Bagdad.
Highlights include the junction with Union Pacific’s Salt Lake City route at Daggett, Ash Hill, the junction with the Arizona & California Railroad at Cadiz, and Goff’s Hill.
The high density Southern Transcon sees 80 trains per day, yielding both a wide variety and many perfectly timed meets. From hot and fast Z trains to long, heavy stacks, grain, coal, ethanol and manifest trains, the Needles Subdivision delivers!

Montana Rail Link “EMDs in the Rockies” The East End
By CVision Productions

What makes this MRL show different than other producers? 98% of trains shown are led with EMD power, 92% of the trains are led with Montana Rail Link Power and our videographer, Mike Savona, spent over 4 years and 30 trips to Montana to capture the footage for this show.

In Volume 1 of our coverage of the Montana Rail Link, we follow the railroad’s mainline from Jones Junction, near Huntley, Montana, to Helena, over the MRL’s 1st and 2nd Subdivisions. In addition to the mainline, the 5th, 6th, and 13th Subdivisions are also covered. On the mainline, trains are seen following the course of the beautiful Yellowstone River east of Livingston, climbing the steep grades of Bozeman Pass and Winston Hill, and traversing the tight curvature along the Missouri River. The 5th Subdivision was once part of Northern Pacific’s Homestake Pass route, and we follow it along its entire length from Logan to Spire Rock. Along the way, the tracks pass through Jefferson Canyon, arguably one of the most scenic stretches of territory on the entire railroad. MRL’s remaining branch lines are true survivors, with the 6th and 13th Subdivisions being no exception. On these lines, you’ll enjoy seeing a truly different side of the railroad’s operation.
MRL’s SD-45 fleet returned to mainline service in 2014, and C. Vision was there to capture these impressive machines as they earned their keep on lease to BNSF. MRL’s mix of old and new EMD locomotives put on an impressive show, and you’ll enjoy seeing these well-maintained units operating in all types of service.
This program documents an exciting era on Montana Rail Link, and you’ll see firsthand why this railroad is considered by many to be the “last best place”. Come along with C. Vision Productions, as we tour the eastern portion of this fascinating railroad, in “Montana Rail Link, EMDs in the Rockies, Volume 1, the East End”.

Montana Rail Link “EMDs in the Rockies” Vol.2 The West End
By CVision Productions

In Volume 2 of our coverage of the Montana Rail Link, we follow the railroad’s mainline from Helena, Montana to Sandpoint, Idaho, over the MRL’s 3rd and 4th Subdivisions. In addition to the mainline, the 9th and 10th Subdivisions are also covered. On the 3rd Sub, trains are seen as they negotiate the steep grades and tight curves of Mullan Pass. This is true mountain railroading, and MRL puts on an impressive show. We visit Missoula, and then take a quick tour of the 9th Subdivision, also known as the Darby or Bitterroot Branch. From DeSmet, we follow the 10th Subdivision to Paradise. The 10th Sub is home to Evaro Hill, and features some incredible scenery along the Flathead River. Next, we head back to DeSmet to cover the 4th Subdivision to Sandpoint, Idaho. Following the course of the Clark Fork River in western Montana, the 4th Sub is nothing short of spectacular. Near the far west end of the MRL, trains are seen as they travel along the pristine waters of Lake Pend Oreille, one of the most beautiful lakes Idaho has to offer.
Along with MRL’s LM and ML trains, we also cover the railroad’s west end local operations. The Darby, Paradise, and Gas Locals are all seen as they go about their assigned chores. MRL’s fleet of blue EMDs has never looked better, and you’ll enjoy seeing these units operating through some of the most scenic landscapes in the region. BNSF powered trains are also viewed, as they travel across the MRL system.
Come along with C. Vision Productions, as we tour the western portion of this fascinating railroad, in “Montana Rail Link, EMDs in the Rockies, Volume 2, the West End”.
