“She was a 365-days-a-year railfan excursion…she was the train that behaved like a caribbean cruise ship, inviting you to loaf and look, dine and drink, with ultimate destination beside the point,” * So wrote David P. Morgan, past editor of Trains Magazine in the July 1976 issue of that magazine.

From the camera of noted photographer Emery Gulash comes the most awesome experience: a complete trip on the California Zephyr! Filmed in 1965, when the CZ was at it’s ultimate, Emery’s camera takes you from dome to trackside, from the cab through the ‘Big-10’ curves and tunnels West of Denver, From Chicago to San Francisco.

Never has there been such on and off train coverage of probably America’s most well known and favored train… The California Zephyr. Thrill to the incredible diversity of scenery, the first class service, F-7’s all the way to the West coast, incredible cab scenes from Denver-West through tunnels and the Big 10 curves, and thrilling run-bys as only Emery Gulash can provide.

Filmed in gorgeous 16 mm color, this is a DVD you will watch over and over again. Live the luxury of the past, through mountains, across the plains, meets with the other CZ’s as well as freight and passenger trains…and a surprise meet with Burlington steam loco 5632 as she passes the CZ on a for railfans only runby!
