The 2 ? hour run carries thousands of daily passengers from Los Angeles' Union Station, past the oldest Santa Fe station built in the 1870's in Carlsbad.

Santa Fe freight train activity is also documented, as well as Carlsbad's famous wooden trestles. A special railroader's treat is provided in the form of rare 90 mph cab rides in Amtrak's newest Dash 8-32 PWH and F-40 locomotives racing along the California Coast. From its palm-lined crossings, to the classic Mission-style station houses it stops at along the way, the Surf line breathes new life into the saying that "getting there is half the fun." California Western Redwood forests, the Pacific coastline, the Sierra Nevada Range, and infamous Donner's Pass - this is a once-in-a-lifetime whistle stop tour of the California Western Railroad.

    Great American Scenic Railroads: Rio Grande & Union Pacific - Railroad Video.
    DVD. Questar. 128 Minutes. Rio Grande Cool trains, Passenger trains, Freight trains, and Winter Ski trains: take one of the most spectacular railroad journeys in the U.S. on the Denver Rio Grande Western. Travel through some of the most amazing natural and manmade wonders in the country as we document the railroad triangle between Denver, Salt Lake City, and Pueblo. Make tracks through the Front Range of the Rockies and meander through its winding valleys. Pierce the hearts of mountains in tunnels that can be up to six miles long, and took as many as four years to drill, blast, dig, and carve. Rumble through majestic canyons, teeter at 10,000 feet crossing the Tennessee Pass, and then crane your neck to admire sheer vertical walls as you thread your way along the bottom of the Royal Gorge. Take a step back in time to admire luxury passenger cars restored to their original classic splendor, then power along windswept winter landscapes to some of the best skiing in the country. This is one of the most varied and comprehensive documents about today's railroad operations in the American West. Union Pacific Climb aboard for the whistle-blasting celebration of Union Pacific's 40th Anniversary Steam Excursion. On May 17, 1953, the Rocky Mountain Railroad Club sponsored its first steam excursion on the rough and ready Union Pacific Railroad. For that first historic trip, Locomotive No. 3967, a coal-burning Challenger equipped with "elephant ear" smoke deflectors, pulled out all the stops on its run from Denver, Colorado, to Laramie, Wyoming. Forty years later, that pioneering excursion was recreated with Challenger 3985 retracing the trail blazed by the original 3967. The solid-out excursion carried 500 passengers through some of the most legendary terrain and towns of the Old West, including Cheyenne, Denver, Laramie and Sherman Hill. Along the way, meet passengers who rode on the original excursion, join in photo run-bys as the Challenger muscles up Sherman Hill, and take a power-house ride in the cab as the old war horse tackles the grades outside of Laramie. This is one train you won't want to miss.

    Great American Scenic Railroads: Great Mississippi and Shenandoah - Railroad Video.
    DVD. Questar. 128 Minutes. Great Mississippi Its winter along the Upper Mississippi River Valley and Old Man River has never looked more regal. Frozen into stillness, and flanked by rolling countryside blanketed with two feet of snow, the drifting white banks look impenetrable? until the first freight rolls through. It doesn't matter that it's the middle of January and the mercury has dropped below zero? this main line operation still runs at full throttle. The So Line, Burlington Northern, Chicago &Western, Minnesota &Easter, and Dakota are just a few of the lines whose rolling stock kick up white clouds of snow in their wakes as they storm their way through the frozen Upper Mississippi River Valley. Follow the workers and engineers who fight and win daily battles against the wintry elements to keep the freight lifelines open through Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa. Shenandoah It's a stunning panorama in motion as you sweep past Virginia's fabled Shenandoah Valley in diesel-powered work horses that still punch a clock for the Winchester and Western Railroad. After all these years, these reliable veterans of the rails still pull more than their muscle-bound best hauling enormous loads up grinding upgrades of the wooded hills between Virginia's working mines. This close-up look at down-home railroading gives you a good idea of what it takes to run this "big little" short-line. Then, follow the north-bound tracks as the action shifts from the Shenandoah Valley to the Appalachians of Maryland as we climb aboard the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad. This time, get an engineer's-eye view of what lies ahead from the cabs of first generation Alco Diesels painted with the legendary "fireball" design. These classic locomotives are seen pulling vintage passenger cars over scenic mountain tracks before stopping at the fully restored station at Frostburg.

    DVD. Questar. 119 Minutes. Durango &Silverton Chasms and curves and nail - biting switchbacks. Crevasses and gorges and perilous passes. Take a thrill ride on one of the most spectacular train lines in the country, crossing the Colorado Rockies on narrow gauge rails. It's high-altitude adventure at full stream ahead, clinging to steep mountainsides behind a vintage steam locomotive shoving its way up to Silverton at 9,288 feet. Join its delighted load of passengers crossing 400 feet above the tumbling waters of the River of Lost Souls. Snake through glacier-carved passes of sheer granite so narrow, it's said that only locomotives with a single coat of paint can squeeze through. Classic Mikado Locomotives are seen hard at work throughout the tourist season, nimbly threading the dizzying heights and craggiest routes of southwestern Colorado. Travel in old-fashioned style through country so rugged, its harsh, pristine beauty remains hidden to all but the railroad's crew and passengers. Cumbres &Toltec Climb aboard Mikado Steam Locomotive #488 for a historic ride on the Cumbres &Toltec Scenic Railroad, the longest narrow gauge railway in the U.S. Built in 1925, this coal burning workhorse pulls turn-of-the-century stock and box cars over the dramatic landscape of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado. The fire-breathing engine doesn't flinch at even the most challenging terrain as it crosses from high mountains to high desert. Switchback curves lined with aspen and pine give way to white-knuckle rides high above granit-hewn gorges, only to be followed by breathless straigh-aways through desert scrub-land. Cling to the sides of Cumbres Pass at 10,000 feet, and ghost along Phantom Curve. Cross the Cascade Trestle and plunge into the darkness of Mud tunnel. Follow the Calico Cut to Whiplash Curve and pass the ghost town Sublette on the way. Finally, hold your breath as the Mikado does a narrow-gauge high-wire act over Toltec Tunnel Gorge before settling in for the horseshoe curves of Lava Loop. See why the Cumbres &Toltec Scenic Railroad has long been considered one of America's most popular train rides.

    Great American Scenic Railroads: Continental Divide and Donner Summit - Railroad Video.
    DVD. Questar. 111 Minutes. Continental Divide Railroading in the Canadian Rockies has never been captured so beautifully on film. Whether blasting through the drifting snow banks during winter at its harshest, or sailing through meadows in the lazy heat of full summer, the only way to fully appreciate the extremes of the Continental Divide is to experience it from a train. Set against the astounding vistas of Lake Louise and Banff, nature in all its awesome wonder and strength is dramatically portrayed. Ride across the Divide on VIA's famous Canadian. Or hop veteran FP9 diesel locomotives as they put their shoulders against the grindstones of North Canadian weather and topography, and boldly push their way through God's country. This program pays tribute to the trains, past and present, that spanned the continent. There are even film clips from the 1950's providing a nostalgic look back at what was then considered state-of-the-art. Donner Summit Treacherous and beautiful? infamous and magnificent. The 8,000 foot wind-swept and snow-covered summit of Donner's peak stands sentinel over Donner's Pass in California's Sierra Nevada Mountains. Named for the ill-fated party of immigrants that lost over half of its number in their tragic attempt to cross it, Donner's Pass was every bit as resistant to the Central Pacific Railroad's efforts to build a transcontinental rail line back in 1863. It took six years and an army of almost 10,000 men using only hand tools to carve a safe passage of this 7,000 foot elevation. To this day, no one can say how many men lost their lives in that massive and dangerous undertaking. Today, this 140-mile stretch of double-tracked mainline rail operations is still one of the most difficult climbs in America railroading. Steep grades, sharp curves, and cruel weather place staggering obstacles in the path of trains that have been making the same enormously difficult trek for the last 130 years. Crossing Donner's Summit is a testament to man's determination in the face of the awesome power of nature.

    Great American Scenic Railroads: Blue Mountains and Mt.
    Rainier - Railroad Video. DVD. Questar. 130 Minutes. The Blue Mountains The Blue Mountains of eastern Oregon stand as a major obstacle to the Union Pacific Railroad's northwest crossing. The 200 hard miles of track cross valleys, rivers, and creeks? then climb the crests of three summits - encountering the toughest grades on any of UP's mainline routes. Massive horsepower is needed to overcome these engine-straining grades, and Union Pacific put its faith in two of their newest mountain -busing locomotives - the GE-840C and EMD-SD60 Wide Cabs. These trains haul up to 14,000 tons, so UP uses a lot of muscle to get the job done - putting 7-8 units on the head to power over the mountains. Follow heavy trains and Amtrak Zephyrs tackling Burnt River Canyon, Lookout Mountain, North Powder River, Antelope Canyon, and the Osman Horseshoe Curve at Prichard Creek. There's even an accident between a garbage truck and an Amtrak train that requires a UP diesel to play tow truck to the stricken Amtrak. There's a lot of action and power on display, and all of it plays out beneath the looming shadows of the majestic Elkhorn Mountains. Mt Rainer The days of the great logging railroads are re-lived in the forested Cascade Mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Hear the lonely call of steam whistles drifting on the crystal mountain air as some of the most rarely seen locomotives in existence make their annual Spring Photo Run on the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad in Washington State. History mingles with a sense of nostalgia as you watch these geared steam locomotives muscle their way past the breathtaking scenery of the Cascades. See the Heisler No. 91, a three truck West Coast Special. Rock along the tree-lined rail bed on a 1929 Pacific Coast Shay. And join the salute to the Mt. Rainier Climax, the next-to-the-last of its type ever made, and the first locomotive restored at the Mt. Rainier shops. Catch an unforgettable glimpse into America's storied past as you ride the rails on these and other rolling museums of steam and steal.
