Tennessee Pass and the Royal Gorge Route - DVD

$29.95

Experience some truly scenic vistas as the trains traverse one of the most beautiful areass in the entire United States.
Tennessee Pass and the Royal Gorge Route covers what is perhaps the last look at this legendary stretch of mountain railroading in America's West. Not only do you get to witness some of our most incredible railroading to be found anywhere, you're treated to some truly scenic vistas as the trains traverse one of the most beautiful areas in the entire United States... The scenic COLORADO ROCKIES!
Enjoy views of the entire line including Dotsero (where the Moffat Line intersects), Minturn and its multitude of helpers, the spectacular 3% grade through Eagle River Canyon, and the cresting at 10,212 foot Tennessee Pass!
Then we examine the line all the way to Salida and on to the Royal Gorge, including action at Malta, Princeton, Buena Vista, and on east through the rugged Arkansas River Canyon.
There's something here for everyone: towering mountains (including Colorado's two highest peaks, Mt. Elbert and Mt. Massive), lovely valleys, rugged canyons, and of course a multitude of growling diesels clawing their way upgrade with maximum tonage trains. The action is impressive with both mid-train and rear helpers. You'll see a coal train operating with 10 units!
This is a time of transition for the railroad, with plenty of Union Pacific and Southern Pacific power, as well as some Rio Grande and foreign roads represented. There is a variety of locomotive power from the latest Wide Cab models to some of the older diesels as well.
All of this incredible action was captured when the railroad was still running at maximum capacity. If you enjoy contemporary railroading, you won't want to miss this DVD!

Running time: 90 minutes.
