Visit the line between Kingman and Flagstaff, with great western scenery and over 60 trains a day. You'll see the split-level track in Kingman Canyon, rugged Crozier Canyon, the remote, beautiful Crookton Cutoff, and the beautiful alpine area between Williams and Flagstaff.

We start in Kingman Arizona and work east to Flagstaff Arizona. From valleys where the human eye can see for miles with mountain backdrops, to narrow ravines with 2 tracks hugging the sides if hills, we see an interesting array of landforms. There are multiple scenes with more than one train, in the modern colours of BNSF and the fallen flags that make up BNSF, to Union Pacific and other mainline road names, to old lease units some in Conrail colours and others. Even some pusher units working hard. These are mainline long distance trains... general manifests and plenty of intermodal service. And the trains are long in length. The regoin we are treated to is baren and desolate, but heading east, more evergreens do appear. The is little seen of human life outside the towns. Fence lines are apparent indicating livestock in the region, and even a few beef cows pose for the camera. Note the one room abandoned School house along the way showing it's age and the history of days gone by.

A great video that is well worth it's money. It will be a favorate here for many years to come. It is one of the best productions I have seen from Railway Productions. I highly recommend this video as a "must have".

Being a railfan and history buff, what could be better than BNSF's former Santa Fe Seligman Sub and Historic Route 66? And it is in 16X9 Widescreen format.

Starting in Kingman Canyon and working it's way east to Flagstaff, Railway Production's BNSF's Arizona Divide shows a lot of action. You get to see a lot of the scenic highlights of the Seligman Sub. Most scenes do not show the entire train, but with the fantastic scenery and this being 60+ trains a day territory, that's OK. And BNSF is very cooperative with the the camera, providing train meets several times. Most scenes have Direction markers (eastbound or westbound) but there are no train symbol markers, so you do not always know the origin and destination of the trains.

There are some scenes with run-through power, including NS, KCS and UP. There are a few scenes highlighting old and sometimes abandoned buildings including a decrepit old one-room schoolhouse, another scene showing an old but working ranch windmill with cattle grazing nearby, and a few scenes along Historic Route 66. Those scenes add a bit of character and help in defining the locale. Most of the ATSF, BN and BNSF paint schemes are seen, including the new “swoosh” scheme and I saw one engine still in the old red and white Frisco paint scheme.


The photography in this video is the best that I have seen. The photography is always sharp, with minimal glare from locomotive cab windows, and all scenes are crystal clear. Narration is minimal. The sound quality is very good...but you might want to turn the sub-woofer down a bit as wind noise can be over-powering sometimes.


Additional remarks by armchairrailfan:
Narration: Could have used more.
Would kids enjoy this? Yes.
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Good Value
