In the San Juan Mountains of Colorado and New Mexico one can leave the 21st Century behind on a steam powered time machine: the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad.

Running on rails laid down in the 1880’s, the Cumbres & Toltec is a living and breathing historical marvel of railroading the way it used to be. It operates over a remaining 64 mile section of the D&RGW’s San Juan Extension between Chama, New Mexico and Antonito, Colorado.

This program covers many of the high points of this scenic route in summer and fall.

SOLDIER SUMMIT

SOLDIER SUMMIT

22.00

The rugged beauty of the American West comes alive in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. From snow-covered peaks, to sheer cliffs and deep canyons containing a wealth of minerals and history, this land has been witness to a battle that has lasted for over 130 years...The battle of trains over Soldier Summit.

7idea Productions paid several visits to this former Rio Grande line and offers a stunning look at mountain railroading in the Wasatch during the fall and winter seasons. Union Pacific coal and merchandise trains are seen daily with manned helpers used on heavy westbounds. BNSF makes an appearance via trackage rights and Amtrak's California Zephyr slips through the night. The Utah Railway steals the show with their incredible power lash-ups of Morrison Knudsen MK 50-3's and six mid-train swing helpers!

Heading west out of Helper, you’ll witness trains thundering through the Price River Canyon. View trains racing through Colton as they march up the east side of Soldier Summit! See all three levels of the Gilluly Loops as we hike through this remote section of the railroad and visit the famed Thistle Tunnels. From beautiful fall weather to heavy blowing snow, our hi-definition cameras caught it all for you to enjoy in the comfort of your living room. This is mountain railroading you can see and feel!

QUEBEC & LABRADOR + NEWFOUNDLAND

QUEBEC & LABRADOR + NEWFOUNDLAND

16.50

This the third of four volumes of SPV's COMPREHENSIVE RAILROAD ATLAS OF NORTH AMERICA covering Canada and includes the provinces of Quebec and Newfoundland & Labrador.

The Atlas shows all currently operated common carrier, tourist and major industrial railroads along with abandoned routes. Lines shown as electrified or narrow gauge are shown only as such when they are currently so equipped or were at abandonment. Lines built as narrow or broad gauge and subsequently regauged are shown as standard gauge. It should be noted that some lines shown as "in service" may see very infrequent use whilst some "abandoned" lines may, if the tracks remain in place, be reactivated for a special movement.

Every effort has been made to show all current operating locations as defined in railroad operating timetables.

Santa Fe Vintage West

Santa Fe Vintage West

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.
