A breathtaking ride of one of the most spectacular stretches of railroad, the former Rio Grande Moffat Tunnel line. Ride the head end of Amtrak’s California Zephyr and see the entire line from Denver, Colorado to Glenwood Springs.

Part 1 takes you from Denver, up the front range, through 30 tunnels, to the famous six-mile long Moffat Tunnel.

Part 2 takes you from Moffat Tunnel through several canyons including, Fraser, Byers, and Gore canyons, to be junction with the Dotsero cutoff at Bond.

Part 3 takes you from Bond, down the Dotsero Cutoff to Dotsero, where you join the original mainline from Pueblo. Then enjoy the ride through lovely Glenwood Canyon.

The view is mostly looking straight ahead and listening to crew commentary. Limited narration.

  1. Alan Ross

    What a fantastic Dvd this. Done in 3 parts when the production of “Amtrak by Rail The Heartland” . This is a fantastic look at some of America’s most beautiful country. See the Moffat Tunnel line, ride on the California Zephyr. See the entire line from Denver to Glenwood Springs. See Fraiser, Byer and Gore Canyon. Also see the fantastic Glenwood Canyon how awesome. Very little narration. 5 Stars.

  2. Ricky

    Shot in June of 1994, This well done 3 part series took place during production of “America By Rail: The Heartland”. For the Whole Series, Les Jarrett is in the cab of the genesis type locomotive While Greg Scholl did some Trackside Runbys. There is Not only Commentary from Jarrett and the Amtrak Crew, but also some well done narration From John Edward Hingsbergen.
