This feature shows the mightiest steam engines on the Denver and Rio Grande system in all their glory. These giants are shown tackling the steepest grades on the railroad: Moffat Tunnel line, Soldier Summit, Tennessee Pass. Drag freights slog up mountains with three articulated engines pushing and pulling. Passenger trains strain to keep up speed in the high Rockies. We see these monsters charging along the “joint line” south of Denver, crossing the desert west of Grand Junction, and diving into the depths of the Royal Gorge. Runaways, landslides, and boiler explosions are covered. The feature begins with a ride on the daily passenger train over La Veta Pass to Alamosa at the height of the glory days of steam. We ride the train from the sun-drenched Cuchara Valley into a driving blizzard at the top of the pass, and back down into crystal-clear weather at the foot of the breath-taking Blanca Peaks, in an era long gone but not forgotten.

Narration. Sunday River Productions programs may feature Color film, B&W film, Music, Dubbed Sound and still photos.

  1. John Arens

    The narrator’s voice and sound is terrible. You can’t understand a lot of what he says and if you turn the volume up, it distorts even more. It was this way when I played it the first time and again when I played it the third time last week. Disgusting after paying $43.95 for the DVD.

  2. Chase

    This is a really neat DVD with lots of footage of Rio Grande’s articulated locomotives hard at work all over the system. It also includes footage of other Rio Grande standard gauge steam that is long gone. Learn about the D&RGW’s usage of the Le Chatelier water brake in this DVD and just enjoy all the historic footage that is provided on this DVD.
