Return to the year 1947 and ride behind a Santa Fe steam powered triple-headed National Model Railroad Association fan trip over Colorado and New Mexico’s Raton Pass. On California’s Cajon Pass, the special is powered by a steam powered double- header. The NMRA special also meets the PA diesel-powered Santa Fe “Chief” and the steam powered Southern Pacific “Daylight”.

You are also aboard a D&RGW train over Colorado’s snow covered Tennessee Pass. See massive D&RGW articulateds at Minturn, Colorado. There’s Rio Grande Narrow Gauge action at Durango, Silverton, Chama, Alamosa, Gunnison, Salida and Marshall Pass. And, as a bonus, we see a rare black and white scene shows a Rio Grande Southern Narrow Gauge freight meeting a Galloping Goose.

From beautifully restored vintage 16mm color films by Billy Bowen.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    A very unique video. Rio Grande standard & NG in action, RGS action, Santa Fe steam and PA’s and even some SP Daylight & GS-4 action. My only fault with this one is…..it’s too short! It leaves you wanting to see more.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5


    This one is pretty neat. It’s very short but has great footage that draws you in quite well. Every scene in this DVD is a must see from climbing Marshall Pass, climbing Raton Pass behind a triple header, and riding the RGS.
