Western Rails includes a great variety of places and railroads – all west of the Mississippi! You will see Kansas City Southern on the Mississippi River Bridge at Burlington, Iowa then head west through Kansas. In Kansas we see action around Abilene, and then along the Santa Fe line with now removed semaphore signals at Syracuse, with Amtrak. Then continue to La Junta, and Lamy, New Mexico for southwestern flavor before heading to Colorado where we see action on Tennessee Pass (The pass was closed in 1997), and other shots in the region with UP. Next its a few scenes in Utah, including a train near Moab, and a desert meet with Amtrak and a D&RGW led train. Then we head to Sheridan, Wyoming to see a trio of BN trains departing, and then head to the scenic Columbia River Gorge between Washington and Oregon to see BN and UP action. Finally we head to California with a sampling of action along the Coast Line with SP trains, and then the Tehachapi line with scenes at Caliente, Bealville, and the famous Tehachapi Loop with SP and Santa Fe action.

  1. Ben

    This is a good assortment program of trains in the western United States. Union Pacific, Santa Fe, Southern Pacific, Burlington Northern, BNSF, and short lines are featured. Amtrak makes some appearances.

  2. Alan Ross

    Western Pacific has great locations and RR west of the Mississippi. See the Kansas City Southern. See lots of action in Abilene, KS. Then see the Santa Fe at Syracuse. Also see Amtrak in action in Topeka, KS. See more action in Topeka during RR days in 1992. Lots of awesome scenery, train sounds and narration. Great film for the money.

    Some classic scenes that will never be seen again.

    While this program was shot in the Betacam era (1992-1999), The DVD release has bonus footage such as 1992 action in Topeka, Kansas during the town’s railroad days with Challenger 3985 & 4-8-4 3751 on display, plus some scenes in May of 1993 on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad from the now gone “Tripleheader Rotary” video.
