Explore the former Santa Fe main line in Arizona and California. Videographer Kenn Oberneder captures the action on this super busy transcontinental main line from Seligman, Arizona to Ludlow, California.
Next to the famous Route 66, this main line is known as one of the busiest sections of railroad in the United States. Along with tons of railroad action, you will see fabulous desert scenery, which captures the essence of this magnificent landscape. We visit locations such as Crozier Canyon, Kingman, Topock, Essex, Siberia and more!
This show was captured in the spring of 2011, a time when strict emission laws were in place in the state of California. As a result, BNSF uses a majority of its emission friendly ES-44 locomotives, however, several older locomotive models are still present throughout the show.
