Cab Ride through the Rockies - 3 DVD set


Enjoy superb scenery from the front of a diesel engine as we travel from Denver westward through the Colorado Rockies. This 3-part set allows the viewer the opportunity to view the rails and scenery ahead of the train as you travel over one of the most scenic railroads in North America. You are riding the westbound California Zephyr, Amtrak train No. 5, inside of a then-new P-42 Genesis class locomotive. There are three programs in this series, each housed in it's own, individual DVD case. The view is almost entirely looking straight ahead. Audio is mostly commentary from the crew, with minimal narration and on-screen graphics.

Program No. 1 - Denver to Moffat Tunnel (87 minutes)
Climb the front range from metropolitan Denver to the summit of the Rockies, which is at the 6.5 mile long Moffat Tunnel. Changing views from plains to alpine landscapes and many tunnels. You'll also pass one eastbound train.

Program No. 2 - Moffat Tunnel to Bond (110 minutes)
You continue your journey from the west portal of the Moffat Tunnel, traveling through the Rockies. The train makes stops at Fraser and Grandby, CO, and the scenery changes from Alpine to Canyons. Canyons include Fraser, Byers, and Gore as you follow the Colorado River to Bond. Again, you'll pass one eastbound train.

Program No. 3 - Bond to Glenwood Springs (80 minutes)
Part three begins at Bond with the Zephyr taking the Dotsero Cutoff as you pass through some of the changing landscape including Red Canyon, and of course the famous Glenwood Canyon, before arriving at the station in Glenwood Springs, CO. You'll pass Amtrak No. 6, plus an eastbound at Glenwood Springs.
Includes chapter menus, stereo sound.
