When the Burlington Northern put their new Oakway EMD SD60’s into service, Colorado’s colorful Joint Line became even more colorful with the bold new blue and white paint scheme. Then came the new gray and red DASH 8’s on lease to the BN from GE subsidiary LMX. The Santa Fe adds to the color with their intriguing red and yellow “SF” units painted and lettered in anticipation of the ill-fated SPSF merger. Another sequence is devoted to the SANTA FE Quality Service Freights. Short and fast these trains leave from Big Lift south of Denver headed for La Junta, Colorado over the Joint Line.
Then it’s back to the basics of railroading in the busy yards of Denver. Colorado. Trains of all 3 roads…the Burlington Northern, the Rio Grande and the Santa Fe are switched for their spectacular run along the Rockies. Narrated by Rege Cordic.
