Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

A tribute to the best loved paint scheme in America, the classic red and silver Santa Fe "warbonnet" passenger paint scheme, resurected in 1989 and applied to freight locomotives for fast intermodal service. We take a look at this spectacular paint scheme in current service at many favorite railfan locations on Cajon Pass, Tehachapi Pass, and the Mojave and Seligman Subs, and give you a brief history of the warbonnet paint and it's reintroduction in 1989, and look at the types of locomotives wearing it.

The Warbonnet… one of the most well recognized paint schemes in railroad history. This video was made to indeed... salute it. As much as I enjoyed the video, in many ways... I did not enjoy it. The narration needs to be improved on. To much in places and not enough in other places. The video is based primarily in California, and with the size of the Santa Fe, the production could have limited this and added many regions across the American west. It's like.... California was the only place that deserved the salute. However, that said.... I am pleased we see here what we do. It's better than nothing at all.

Additional remarks by rrvideoman:
Narration: Could have used more.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value: Good Value
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
