For more than a century, the Blue Mountains of Oregon have echoed with the sounds of hard-working trains laboring up and down steep grades and squealing through numerous curves.

Even with today’s powerful, high-tech locomotives, railroaders still face a daunting challenge of running long and heavy trains through a range of mountains with three different summits. This DVD takes you on a 204 mile journey through “The Blues” starting at the Hinkle hump yard and heading toward the Idaho border just east of Huntington. Heavy trains and heavy grades means BIG POWER! Thrill to the sound of 16,000 ton soda ash trains tackling 2% grades with mid and rear DPUs! Watch long stack trains race by at nearly 70 miles per hour!

Enjoy winter scenes around Meacham and Kamela where trains seem to appear right out of the ground as they crest the summit and immediately plunge down the other side. The magnificent scenery of northeast Oregon’s Blue Mountains coupled with a good mix of long, high-tonnage trains makes this an amazing program to see and hear! Shot in January and April, 2010.
