RIO GRANDE'S THIRD DIVISION GREG SCHOLL 56 minutes

Our SP Steam show begins with 1930's black and white footage in the Tehachapi range which includes riding in the cab of a cab forward, number 4100. Then we enjoy some color and black and white footage of ferries in the San Francisco Bay then ride the famous Coast Daylight from Los Angeles toward San Francisco, including some meets, and a helper over Cuesta Grade. This footage is black and white and Color. We move to the Sierra Nevada and see mainly Cab Forwards in pusher service with Black Widow F-units up front. A little viewed area is the Siskiyou Line which splits from the mainline at Black Butte. We ride trains 327 and 328 in this mountain region just before those trains were terminated. There is a wide variety of action in the Bay Area including Oakland, Oakland Mole Station, West Oakland diamond, engine service area, and San Francisco, where we ride a train to Los Gatos, and see other action. At West Oakland Roundhouse we see the now famous GS4 4-8-4 number 4449 in "Warbaby" black livery without the skirts. Our final segment is a parade of trains and transportation for the celebration opening the Los Angeles Union Passenger Station in 1939. There are Southern Pacific, Union Pacific and Santa Fe locomotives in this segment. Much of the footage is from original 8mm silent movies from the Ken Shattock Collection. We have it professionally transferred to video, and its now all on this DVD. Music and informative historical narration have been added, and we think you will find this to be a great addition to your steam library. Mostly color but some black and white.

SPECIAL TRAINS ON THE C&TS GREG SCHOLL 87 minutes

This video has some unusual material since the meat of the show centers around 3 main trips. First we see an Enginner/Fireman school freight with engine 489 on a misty day that creates some neat fog scenes with the train emerging from the clouds. This train operated from Chama to Cumbres and the sound in these conditions was really nice. We finish this segment at Cumbres as 489 departs headed to Antonito. The second portion is another Engineer/Fireman School train, but this time it is 487 powering another freight for the "Advanced" engineer school train. We will see a bit of switching with this train at Cumbres. This train left very early from Chama, and produced some of the best lighting conditions for our entire trip with the low sun angles. From Jukes Tree at the Chama River Bridge to Cumbres this is one to really enjoy on a perfect day.Next we have a special little segment regarding Cresco with one scene, that relates to a light engine that needed to take over for an out-of-service locomotive. We don't want to spoil this with too much info so you have something to look forward to. We will also see a bit of switching with engine 484 in the Chama yard, and see some shots of 484 turning on the wye. The final segment is actually out of order a bit, but seemed like a nice way to end things. This was the final Sunset Train of the year on the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad. The idea is to leave Chama late in the afternoon once the regular train arrives and is turned, and then head to Cumbres. This train departs around 5:30 and on a clear day like we had some unusual lighting presents itself as the train works hard on the 4% climb to Cumbres. 487 does the honors on this one and we see it at Windy Point, then again backing the train into the tail of the wye where folks will detrain for a meal in the Cumbres Pavilion.

STEAM MEMORIES OF ONTARIO GREG SCHOLL 55 minutes

This video has nearly an hour of great steam action on CN and CP during the steam era. There is just about every class of engine imaginable that was running near the end of the steam era. First we see Canadian National power including smaller engines, then moving all the way through the other medium size engines to the larger 2-8-2's, 4-8-2's, and 4-8-4's. In addition to these we also see the 4-6-4 Hudsons which had a distinctive tender. There were only a few of these racehorse engines built. In the 4-8-2 and 4-8-4's you will see the regular ones as well as the shrouded(streamlined)ones. These would be the 6060 series 4-8-2's and the 6400 series 4-8-4's. Its quite a nice variety with good action scenes of most all the classes. Next we see CPR engines with smaller ones and work our way through 4-6-0's, 2-8-0's, 2-8-2's, 4-6-2's, and 4-6-4 Hudsons. As I recall there is even one 4-4-4 Jubilee. There are a variety of the 4-6-2 pacifics, including the G3 types and G5's, and several of the early Hudsons, and of course the Royal Hudsons. Here again we get to see a great variety of steam including some doubleheaders, and are entertained by some of the accounts on certain runs by some of the men who were there.

STEAM TO SILVERTON GREG SCHOLL 90 minutes

In the middle of September we ride the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad between both those towns in the Colorado Rockies. Located near the four corners region of Southwestern Colorado this 45 mile former branch line of the Denver and Rio Grande Western railroad has operated continually since 1882. Today we ride in the glass- topped premium car, the "Knight Sky", and we capture for you the majority of the highlights along the journey. With great views through the windows and ceiling one can see pretty well. However, we shot most of the footage from the end platforms where the view is better and allows us to see not only the scenery but the engine and train ahead of us in the scenery. There are great views looking along the highline cliff, down into the Animas Gorge, crossing High Bridge(One of 5 bridges), and following the Animas River close-enough you can hear the roaring rapids next to us. We also stop several times for water and to drop off some passengers. Our locomotive is K-36 2-8-2 number 480 for this journey. The video coverage is northward (Railroad West) from Durango to Silverton, where we arrive passing the old depot and stop at the end of track in the street of this old mining town. We will also give some of the history of the railroad along the route. Maps and narration along with screen titles give you locations and points of interest along the route. This famous train ride is not to be missed, and this video will let the viewer enjoy it many times over.

SUNSET OF CANADIAN NATIONAL STEAM GREG SCHOLL 30 minutes

Renowned photographer Newton Rossiter captured this black and white footage on 16mm film during 1959 that included some of the last runs of steam in Ontario, Canada. We see some of the big 4-8-4's in both freight and passenger service, and includes a scene of one 4-8-4 number 6242 going on the turntable and into the roundhouse under steam for the very last time, before its fire was put out inside. We also see a nice 4-8-4 doubleheader, and two scenes of 4-6-4 Hudsons on passenger trains. We also get a scene of streamlined 4-8-4 number 6402, and the next to last commuter train to operate steam with 6219. The last steam ended in Ontario on April 21-22 1959. Then we move west to Manitoba in June of 1959 to see a variety of 4-6-0's, 2-8-0's, 2-8-2's, 4-6-2's, and various 4-8-2's including the semi-streamlined 6060 series in freight and passenger operations. Most footage here is shot between Winnipeg and Portage la Prairie which includes St. James Tower. The show concludes with a winter fantrip of 4-8-4 6167 in the winter operating in Ontario.

SUPERIOR RAILROADING GREG SCHOLL 87 minutes

There is no more desolate place on the Canadian Pacific Railway Mainline that the section along the north shore of Lake Superior. Regardless of the season, rock cuts, sheer cliffs, tunnels and sharp curves make this area one challenging piece of railroading. In this show you will go beyond trackside, as we ride the trains, see the dispatch center, ride in the roadmaster's hi-rail truck and even get an aerial look at one of the most remote areas during the harsh winter season. This is nonstop mainline action with a great variety of power including a few ALCOS which are seen as well as the normal SD40-2's.

THE LEGENDARY CANADIAN GREG SCHOLL 55 minutes

The Legendary Canadian had its inaugural run on April 24, 1955 and with the introduction of this classic stainless steel train, it has been in a class of its own. Even today these coaches are still in operation for VIA RAIL CANADA, using the same cars that were originally ordered for Canadian Pacific. The DVD consists of two main segments. First is a 20 minute show that was made by Canadian Pacific when the train first ran, and shows a trip across the country with sound and narration as a publicity film in 1955. You see everything from onboard to spectacular trackside views as it travels west toward Vancouver. The second part of the dvd is "Working Number 1" which gives you a behind the scenes look at the people and efforts necessary to keep the "Canadian" going under VIA RAIL ownership. You will see the shops, in the station, trackside, and aboard the train, prior to and during much of No. 1's first leg from Toronto to Capreol. This includes all aspects of the jobs onboard the train and you will see views from the engine cab. This was shot and mastered on broadcast video equipment and with great production equipment. There is also a short film "The New Budd Train" which is a newsreel program with trackside, aerial, and onboard film footage showing the "Canadian" being tested behind Reading F-units in the Philadelphia area.

TRACKSIDE ON THE D&S GREG SCHOLL 77 minutes

Most of our videos are scenes of the steam trains in action from off the train. This is one of those videos that allows you to see the train as it passes and in some of the scenery the average person would see riding the train from that perspective. As such this is a nice companion video to "Steam to Silverton" since we are not on the train but watching it from the outside. There are two trains per day from Durango, and we enjoy scenes leaving Durango, and from a mountain perch overlooking Durango and the river with a great perspective. The train travels for several miles on level track before climbing Hermosa Hill between Hermosa Tank and Rockwood. We see several scenes in this region including Hermosa, Highway 250, plus others. In addition we have a neat scene at Beaver Creek Canyon, sometimes called the "Little High Line"(See cover shot). We also drove to Silverton one day, and got both trains in the area, including one along the river, and another passing the old depot. There are also some scenes backing and on the wye where engines are serviced and turned for the return trip. On the return trips we have scenes at Rockwood through the cut, plus others between Rockwood and Durango in the glorious afternoon lighting. The weather was perfect with clear blue sky for all these scenes on the railroad. If all that wasn't enough we have also included a segment riding the train where we show a few scenes along the Animas River above Tacoma, then at High Bridge, and along the High Line in the late afternoon showing the cliffs and Animas River Gorge below. Hard working steam action awaits in this show.

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. The long decreasing demand for coal, along with a series of other contributing factors, left these roads in spiraling financial decline. These railroads managed to keep the freight rolling into the mid 70's with little resources available, but the die was cast and all the Anthracite roads would eventually be swept into Conrail in 1976. In the Anthracite Railroads in the 70's series, we'll look at the ailing operations of the Hard Coal Carriers in the final years before their inclusion into Conrail. We begin this series with the Reading Railroad's Wilmington and Northern Branch. We'll view the operations of the Joanna Jobs to Grace Mine and the RW or Reading to Wilmington jobs.

CHESSIE SAND PATCH VOL 1 JOHN PECHULIS MEDIA 54 minutes

The historic Sand Patch grade and Sand Patch Tunnel on the former B&O Pittsburgh division draws railfans on a regular basis.Climbing north and west from Cumberland, Maryland the line travels 100 miles of grades and curves over the Allegheny Mountains to Pittsburgh, Pa. It is one of the steepest railroad grades in the East Coast, ascending more than 1,000 feet in elevation in about 20 miles from Hyndman, PA to the summit of the Allegheny Mountains. Near the summit is the well known Sand patch Tunnel. Construction on the original Sand Patch Tunnel began in 1854. It was rebuilt in 1871 and was expanded to accommodate two tracks in 1914. The tunnel is 4,475 feet long. This ex-B&O line became part of the Chessie System in 1972 when the Chesapeake & Ohio, Baltimore & Ohio, and Western Maryland railroads all came under common management. We_ll follow the Chessie_s varied freight trains as they battle their way from Cumberland, MD up the east slope to the Summit and down the west slope to Rockport, PA and back in June of 1978 with Jonathan Reck and friends. Popular locations include Cumberland, Hyndman, Mance, Sand Patch Tunnel, Keystone, Salisbury Viaduct, Yoders and Rockwood.
