Canada's YELLOWHEAD PASS

Canada's YELLOWHEAD PASS

23.00

At 3,711 feet above sea level and with gradual approaches on both sides, Yellowhead Pass is the ideal railway passage of Canada's Rocky Mountains.

Canadian National utilizes this strategic crossing of the continental divide marking the provincial boundary of British Columbia and Alberta. The railway is busy with intermodal traffic heading to and from west coast ports of Vancouver and Prince Rupert, BC. The rails stay polished with unit grain and coal trains heading for export, numerous mixed merchandise trains, and Via Rail passenger trains sporting sleek silver dome cars.

See this incredibly beautiful line from Hinton, Alberta, to Red Pass, British Columbia. A good deal of the route traverses the picturesque setting of Jasper National Park. 7idea Productions made two trips to the Yellowhead Country and our cameras captured its natural beauty in both summer and winter.

Join us for a spectacular railfan adventure you won't soon forget!

This program was shot between August 2016 and January 2017.

The Chama Turn - Cumbres Pass Route (Stereo)

The Chama Turn - Cumbres Pass Route (Stereo)

Ref: A17


Price: 20.00

Railroaders called it 'The Chama Turn', and sometimes the Cumbres Turn. Most railfans knew the operations over Cumbres simply as the Cumbres Pass route. In the mid 60's, noted photographer Emery Gulash brought his 16 mm Bolex to Colorado to capture all the nuances of Colorado Rocky Mountain railroading at its best.

His keen eye for composition, his patience for waiting for just the right shot, plus his dedicated railfan attitude now provide us with exquisite remembrances of that which was narrow gauge.

Many 'turns' out of Chama are shown, as well as runs to Antonito. Classic photography from one of the great masters of the motion picture camera are depicted in this amazing production. Approx. 60 Minutes

Twilight Of The Rio Grande

In the late 60's, Emery Gulash was able to produce spectacular full-color history of one of the most famous narrow gauge operations in the U.S. Coverage includes single and double headed operations between Alamosa and Silverton, including Antonito, Cumbres, Chama and Durango. Also included are many rare shots of Pagosa Springs and the Farmington branch.

The train starts out early in the morning, ahead of the Silverton passenger runs. The crisp golden colors of early morning portray a warmness seldom seen in railroading. The train is followed through the day as it switches at Hermosa, Silverton and interfaces with the Silverton passenger runs. by Green Frog * Ref. A12

26 RAILROADS IN TRANSITION 1944-1962

A kaleidoscope of the railroad scene unfolds before the viewer, from the massive articulated locos of the N&W and B&O through Nickel Plate's Berkshires, Pennsys GG1s, Seaboards Centipedes, NYC Sharks to the Shays, Heislers etc of the backwoods logging railroads.

This is the programme that must surely become an archive classic. Made largely from long abandoned and forgotten film that was rescued just as it was being thrown away. The Glory Machines tracks 31 railroads, some to a greater, some to a lesser degree and a few just as brief cameos. This is more professional than just an amateur's film shots, and is truly a unique and superb record of American railroading from the 1920s to the 1950s. Too much to detail fully, we list all railroads covered and give some idea of the contents.
