The rugged majesty of the Colorado Rockies sets the backdrop for this historic routr running west out of Denver. Between the west obre of the famed Moffat Tunnel and Glenwood Springs lies 130 miles of high mountain Parks and deep colorful canyons. After exiting the 6.2 mile long Moffat Tunnel, the grade Lesens allowing trains to sprint through the Colorado high country. Loaded coal trains put on a fantastic show of raw horsepower Verses gravity, with remote swing and rear-end helpers. We'll visit Gore and LittleGore Canyons, Byers Canyon, the spectacular Dotsero Cutoff, Glenwood Canyon and the Crater Loops on Craig Branch. This is one of the most scenic railroads in the west! Part of Union Pacific's Denver Area, this line sees mainly coal traffic out of western Colorado and eastern Utah. BNSF operates trains over the Moffat via trackage rights and Amtrak's California Zephyr runs each way daily between Chicago and the west coast. As trains follow the course of the Colorado River, one awe inspirier vista opens up after another. The Rio Grande called this "The Scenic Line of the World" and you will see why in The Moffat Road Part 2: Winter Park to Glenwood Springs!

Going trackside in Selkirk, New York we´ll watch mainline operations into and out of CSX´s giant classification yard.
The diminutive Grafton and Upton Railroad west of Bosten, is a tiny shortline dating back to the 1800s that is now expanding. We´ll chase their classic Geeps as they struggle with rollercoaster grades on their thrice-weekly turn. Then we´ll climb to the summit of New Hampshireßs Mount Washington aboard the "Railway to the Moon", the famous Mount Washington Cog Railway. Watch as our steam-powered train muscles its way up a grade that reaches 37 percent!

Here is the story of a truly momentous undertaking involving a truly historic steam locomotive. Built in 1927, locomotive 3751 was the first 4-8-4 for the Santa Fe and the first ever for Baldwin Lokomotive Works. She was the first of Santa Fe's passenger trains to arrive at the new LAUPT in 1939, and she served in passsenger service faithfully for 27 years before she was retired in 1953. In 1957, she was donated to the City of San Bernardino where she sat on display, exposed over the years to the elements and vandalism until a dedicated band of supporters formed the San Bernardino Railroad Historical Society in 1981 with the intent to protect her and possibly restore her. It wasn't until 1985 that a suitable location was found  where the 3751 cloud be housed and rebuilt from the inside out. Skeptics said it couldn't be done; she was too deteriorated. Yet after 10years and thousands of hours of concerted effort, 3751 was returned to the rails in elegant splendor.
  This show will take you along that monumental journey, from the move to new quarters to the work that took place during the inervening years, ending with the 3751's break-in freight run from San Bernardino to Los Angeles in 1991. You'll meert the volunteers who ncleaned, welded, fabricated, and refurbished the engine to its original design. They will explain the many challenges they faced. You'll see rivets and bolt caps, boiler tubing and piping, firebricks and side sheeting being replaceed. You'll learn how pumps and compressors, rods and piston rings, miles of copper tubing, and other elements were restored or created, including the cab's numerous valves and interior construction, as well as the tender's repairs. Take this trip with us and see how a determined team accomplished what others said couldn't be done, which was to give a bright new future to a magnificent Icon of American railroading lore.

King Coal - Powder River Rails & Mines
    In Wyoming's Powder River Basin, single track has been doubled and in some areas tripled to handle train after heavy train, and all for a single commodity - coal! Here's you opportunity to experience the complete story. At Black Thunder Mine, close-up views take you into the pits as massive machinery digs the coal, hauls it out, and flood-loads it into moving trains. Rolling meets between union Pacific and BNSF trains are common, often headed by high horsepower locomotives such as GE C44-9s and EMD SD90s. The action is intense as we revisit Power River coal country!

Beautiful Color with Stereo Sound and Narration

Powder River Basin Coal Trains
Filmed in 1992, this video demonstrates what it took to move huge amounts of coal out of the Basin. Chicago  & North Western's GE C40-8s, painted in a darker yellow scheme, and Burlington Northern trains, headed by a great mix of newer  and old generation locomotives, stuggle to haul their loads over White Tall Hill and the north end of the Basin. You'll catch the action from aboard a set of helpers as they give a 14,000-ton train a shove up the mountain. It's heavy-duty railroading at it best!

Steam and Diesel action fill the screen in this edition of our "BEST OF" series! Included are:

  • SP Beet Train. Watch as SP's famous wooden gondolas are filled to the brim. Then follow two SP GP9s and a Cotton Belt GP40-2 as they haul the gondolas from Los Banos toward Fresno en route to the sugar refinery.

  • SP Sacramento Shops. Wheel repairs, traction motor rebuilds, and heavy locomotive repairs were still taking place at the Sacramento shops in 1991. We'll take you through the facilities to see the work in progress.

  • Berea Tower. This busy Conrail juction near Cleveland, Ohio, saw a nonstop parade of trains in the fall of 1991. The interesting mix of power includes SD40s, SD40-2, GP40, GP38-2, 6-axle GE locomotives, and more.
