UNION PACIFIC IN THE 90'S GREG SCHOLL 71 minutes

This visit to Union Pacific territory was mainly from two visits in 1995 and 1999. In 1995 we explore a few scenes at Creston, Wyoming, the crest of the continental divide. Then the next day we get lucky and find out the last Centennial Number 6936 is on a freight from Denver to North Platte. We catch up to it around Point of Rocks and chase it on to North Platte. Along the way we see additional freight trains on a somewhat rainy day. We also got invited into the cab of the 6936 which was the middle unit for a look around inside. Next we see a train passing from inside the SD60M as the train is stopped for a meet. Along the way we also see a unit hopper train with red SD70 demonstrators as distributed power. This was a fun day seeing this one-of-a-kind and largest diesel in the world in action. Next we are in Rock Springs, Wyoming in 1999, to see a deadhead move of UP Steamers 3985(Live in steam), hauling 844(not in steam) and the support equipment for the steam program. They are returning from Sacramento after Railfair 1999, and a SD60 leads the train, so we keep with the theme of UP In The 90's for the diesel fan, but the steamers get this cameo look. We see some other UP freights along this route and we peal off near Green River. The final segment is a 1999 visit to the hot spot of Gibbon, Nebraska. This is where the line from Cheyenne splits to go either to Omaha or Kansas City. We get there on a lovely July 5th morning and witness a variety of action, including a surprise visitor. In addition we see a lot of variety of motive power for SD40-2's on a rock train, to new power, and foreign power from other railroads. In this segment we were fortunate to get symbols and information for the majority of the trains we witness. It seemed like there was always a train coming or going during our visit.

VINTAGE STEAM IN THE EAST GREG SCHOLL 84 minutes

Vintage Steam In The East covers a great number of subjects. Some railroads have just a couple of scenes, while others have 5-14 minutes apiece. Subjects include the following: Burlington 4-8-4's and 2-8-2's, Chicago and Northwestern 4-6-2's mainly around Chicago, Grand Trunk Western 4-6-2's, 2-8-2's, and 4-8-4's. Includes a nice 3 steam engine meet at Durand, riding a train, Detroit 6405, and 6323 among others. Illinois Central is included with a parade of 2-10-2's and 4-8-2's on mainline freight trains plus a switcher.

One of the better length segments is the Long Island Railroad, as we follow a local freight with 2-8-0 number 107 on the Port Jefferson Branch. Along the way we have a three train meet at Smithtown, as two passenger trains meet the local. The passenger trains have a Pennsy K4s, and a Long Island G5. This is a unique sequence and there are plenty of nice scenes of the 107 as we follow it and enjoy some switching and shots between stops.

Next we have a great segment of Louisville and Nashville which is nearly all M class 2-8-4's on the northern end from DeCoursey Yard south toward Corbin. There is some stuff shot in cold weather here and several overall visits were shot by Warren Scholl. We see engines being serviced, and backing to their trains and nice plumes of smoke as the hotshot manifest heads for Atlanta. We also chase a couple of trains and there is a bit of pacing. A couple of New York Central 2-8-2's show up on transfer freights, plus some early RS-3 diesel switchers. This is one of the longer segments and like the Long Island is pretty rare material. Of all the 2-8-4's built during this time, these were among the nicest looking of the bunch in our opinion, but none were saved.

Next is Milwaukee road with a variety of things, including a nice selection of 4-8-4 action, in an engine terminal, and departing the yard. Also see some 2-8-2's and a streamlined 4-6-4. There is a very early(maybe 1930's or 40's) scene in Waukesha with a caboose hop crossing the Milwaukee Electric line in downtown. This is a good segment with variety and a good selection of 4-8-4's in an engine terminal and on trains.

Warren Scholl shot three different Nickel Plate Road trains, two of which were at Van Wert, Ohio with two different 2-8-4's, and another location with a 2-8-2. We see some switching with these trains, before they depart town. Nice close-ups of these 2-8-4's in this short segment.

Norfolk and Western is represented with 3-4 different trains on Blue Ridge Grade, three of which are coal trains with 1200 series class A 2-6-6-4's on the front and Y6 class 2100 series 2-8-8-2 on the rear. There are several nice locations as these trains go eastbound up the Grade with loaded Coal trains bound for export at Norfolk. There is also one J Class 4-8-4 downgrade in the same area.

There is also a very short Rock Island segment, and Mississippian #77 on that shortline with their 2-8-0. Tank engines are seen on the Ohio River Coal company near Cleves, Ohio around 1960, and early 60's 0-6-0 action with engine #12 on the Morehead and North Fork in Kentucky.

This show has something for everyone, and some rare footage found in one show. Lots of surprises in this all-color presentation.

WESTERN STEAM LOGGERS GREG SCHOLL 64 minutes

Some of the most interesting railroad was the back-woods logging operations, and related short-lines that fed off wood products. This mostly 8mm and super 8mm footage is from mainly two different sources.

WESTERN STEAM TRIPS GREG SCHOLL 65 minutes

The show begins with Rio Grande (D&RGW) 2-8-2 number 483 on a October 1961 trip from Alamosa with fall colors. We then see some action with two of the K-28 class engines on the Silverton Line, with the engines split for the high bridge. Warren Scholl rode this trip which featured a few runbys along the way. A helper (doubleheader) is used on the return trip from Chama to Cumbres.

Now to Oregon and Washingto for Spokane, Portland and Seattle 4-8-4 number 700, on what we think is the final trip. Scenes appear to be east of Portland along the Columbia River. There is also a trip with Northern Pacific 2-8-2 number 1911 to Battleground, and trip with 4-8-4 number 2626 (which was originally the engine Timken used for its new roller bearings, before NP purchased it. This may be the last trip with 2626, but we are not sure. It appears to be from Seattle. Another Northern Pacific 4-8-4 number 2686 is ridden from St. Paul to Staples, Minnesota in the summer of 1957. There are some trackside views including a runby, and servicing in Staples with an 0-8-0 switch engine. With 700 you see 3 different 4-8-4's.

There is a three day excursion from the Bay Area in California on North Western Pacific with primarily an assortment of 4-6-0 locomotives and a couple of side trips to branch lines. This is a scenic segment along the Eel River and other locations on a trip that was ridden, and included some photo runbys.

Santa Fe 4-6-4 number 3450 is seen and ridden behind on a trip that went to Oakdale where Sierra took over with engines 34 and 36 for the rest of the day. This was on October 19, 1952. 3450 is a great looking Hudson. 34 and 36 are 2-8-0 wheel arrangement engines, and neither has operated for many years. 3450 is on display at the fairgrounds in Pomona, California.

We also see an excursion on the Santa Maria Valley Railroad with engine 2-8-2 #21 in 1954. The groups took the Southern Pacific to Guadeloupe and we see SP 4-8-4 4440 departing that station before seeing some nice coverage of #21.

There are also brief looks at Southern Pacific 2-6-0 number 1711, and 3 excursion appearances of Southern Pacific 4-8-4 #4460. One trip is the Fresno Flyer, and another is the final trip on the SP with steam on a 2-day trip to Reno from Oakland in 1958. This GS-6 locomotive was famous for pulling several excursions near the end of the steam era, and is preserved at the National Museum of Transportation in Kirkwood, Missouri.

There are also a few excursions on the Western Pacific which include mostly 4-6-0 number 94, but also a trip that was doubleheaded with 94 and 2-8-2 334. These trips were in 1954 and 1956. This is a nice segment with a lot of trackside views, and a little bit of riding as well. There is some nice pacing of the doubleheader in the Oakland area on the return trip.

ANTHRACITE RAILROADS OF THE 70'S VOL 1: READING WILMINGTON & NORTHERN BRANCH JOHN PECHULIS MEDIA 50 minutes

By the 1970's, the once thriving Anthracite roads were struggling to survive.
