Great American Scenic Railroads
 Rio Grande & Union Pacific  (2009)
In Stock $19.99

Rio Grande

Cool trains, Passenger trains, Freight trains, and Winter Ski trains: take one of the most spectacular railroad journeys in the U.S. on the Denver Rio Grande Western. Travel through some of the most amazing natural and manmade wonders in the country as we document the railroad triangle between Denver, Salt Lake City, and Pueblo. Make tracks through the Front Range of the Rockies and meander through its winding valleys. Pierce the hearts of mountains in tunnels that can be up to six miles long, and took as many as four years to drill, blast, dig, and carve. Rumble through majestic canyons, teeter at 10,000 feet crossing the Tennessee Pass, and then crane your neck to admire sheer vertical walls as you thread your way along the bottom of the Royal Gorge. Take a step back in time to admire luxury passenger cars restored to their original classic splendor, then power along windswept winter landscapes to some of the best skiing in the country. This is one of the most varied and comprehensive documents about today’s railroad operations in the American West.

Union Pacific

Climb aboard for the whistle-blasting celebration of Union Pacific’s 40th Anniversary Steam Excursion. On May 17, 1953, the Rocky Mountain Railroad Club sponsored its first steam excursion on the rough and ready Union Pacific Railroad. For that first historic trip, Locomotive No. 3967, a coal-burning Challenger equipped with “elephant ear” smoke deflectors, pulled out all the stops on its run from Denver, Colorado, to Laramie, Wyoming. Forty years later, that pioneering excursion was recreated with Challenger 3985 retracing the trail blazed by the original 3967. The solid-out excursion carried 500 passengers through some of the most legendary terrain and towns of the Old West, including Cheyenne, Denver, Laramie and Sherman Hill. Along the way, meet passengers who rode on the original excursion, join in photo run-bys as the Challenger muscles up Sherman Hill, and take a power-house ride in the cab as the old war horse tackles the grades outside of Laramie. This is one train you won’t want to miss.
