Narrow Gauge Combo has two programs about railroading on the former Denver & Rio Grande Western narrow gauge in Colorado and New Mexico. Narrow Rails Still Shine is a documentary about both the Durango & Silverton and the Cumbres & Toltec. These incredible steam tourist railroads are all that is left of the once extensive narrow gauge system. You’ll see current narrow gauge action and meet historians and retired railroaders who recount what the old times were like. A classic look at the narrow gauge. Many people tell us that this is their all-time favorite train video.

Rotary Snowplow Through the Rockies is an in-depth documentary about the ultimate in railroad snow fighting, the rotary snowplow. You’ll see Rotary “OY” from both trackside as well as on-board the snowplow. Get a tour of how it works and see the insides in motion. In addition, you’ll meet several retired railroaders who will tell you the tales of how brutal it was plowing snow when the narrow gauge ran year ’round. Chapter Menu provides instant access to program segments.

  1. Chase

    A great earlier production on the D&S and C&TS showing why Colorado narrow gauge railroading is so unique. The first half which is Narrow Rails Still Shine is great showing the busy D&S and the uniqueness of the C&TS with all of its remaining history and how it is preserved. The second half is great footage of the Rotary OY hard at work clearing Cumbres and gives a great look into the operations of running a rotary and interviews with those who had to do it on the Rio Grande.
