Mountain Thunder

14.00

Incredible steam action on the Heber Valley and Nevada Northern railroads, with 3 engines in action. The Heber Valley's Baldwin Consolidation type 2-8-0, a former Union Pacific freight engine puts on a magnificent display with a photo freight in Utah's snow covered Wasatch Mountains, awesome runby action, all sound and fury! Sunrise to sunset action in superb weather. Next is the Nevada Northern, where we take a step back in time in the engine house, then it's off to lineside for runby action, with recently overhauled passenger 4-6-0 #40 strutting her stuff with a passenger train, including a 124 year old Pullman palace car, and Alco 2-8-0 #93 with a freight train making the valley's echo with her whistle and exhaust. Some magnificent action in Nevada's high country. Not to be missed, a must see program for steam lovers everywhere!.

EMD's SD60, Volume 1

EMD's SD60, Volume 1

20.00

The SD60 is a six-axle diesel locomotive built by the Electro Motive Division of General Motors from 1984 to 1995. Due to the unreliability of the SD50's, EMD's creation of the SD60 was a success as many Class One railroads still roster these locomotives today. The 60's all have a 3,800 horsepower 16-cylinder 710G series EMD prime mover. This was an improvement to the 3,000 horsepower 645's that were found in the SD40-2's.

In this volume, we feature trains led with the standard cab SD60's from the Soo Line, Canadian Pacific, Canadian National, Union Pacific, Norfolk Southern and the New York, Susquehanna & Western.

In a world of high horsepower and high tech locomotives dominating the rail scene on Class One rails, it is refreshing to see these old workhorses still out doing their thing. Enjoy the sites and sounds of SD60's!

BNSF's MOJAVE MAIN LINE

BNSF's MOJAVE MAIN LINE

22.00

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!

UNION PACIFIC'S CIMA SUBDIVISION

UNION PACIFIC'S CIMA SUBDIVISION

22.00

California's Mojave Desert is the driest place in North America. It ranges in elevation from over 11,000 feet in the Spring Mountains, to 282 feet below sea level in Death Valley. Through this seemingly barren land, a mainline railroad charts a course connecting Salt Lake City with the rich ports of Southern California. It is known as Union Pacific's Cima Subdivision.

Covering the western portion of the San Pedro, Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad, the Cima Subdivision runs for 173 miles between Yermo, California and Las Vegas, Nevada. Various intermodal trains race between Chicago and Southern California. Coal trains lumber over the steel rails along with heavy manifests for Salt Lake City, North Platte, and West Colton. Auto rack and ethanol tank trains add to the interesting mix of traffic.

Following the Mojave River, the rails pass through the amazing features of Afton Canyon then race across the dunes to the oasis of Kelso. Next comes the stiff 2.2% climb over Cima Hill. Draw bars strain as big diesels dig in for the nineteen mile pull to the summit. Crossing into Nevada, trains leave the lonely desert behind as they roll among the lights of Las Vegas.

This program was shot in March and April of 2018.
