Famed in song and legend, the Atchisan, Topeka and Santa Fe is a great railroad. Although now merged with the Burlington Northern, our video brings back the Santa Fe of long ago! We've heard that film on Santa Fe steam is somewhat rare. "Chiefs..." features the steam-diesel transition era in Cajon Pass and Sullivan's Curve. Mikados, 4-8-4's and 2-10-2's smoke it up with Santa Fe's great passenger fleet, either alone or as helpers on the point with the 1st generation diesels. The program starts with a black and white documentary produced by the railroad to promote the "Super Chief". From Chicago to LA, we experience all the amenities of this great train! From the various sleeping car types, to the lounges and diners and the luxury service, experience life on "the train of the stars". Experience the four seasons at Raton Pass through Colorado and New Mexico. First and second generation diesels parade through Raton, Starkville, Trinidad, around Wootton Curve and through Raton Tunnel. Cabs in the red "Warbonnet" paint, passenger cowl units along with a variety of blue and yellow "Geeps", lead passengers and freight through the pass. Finally, back east, we catch the parade of "Chiefs" on Edelstein Hill between Chillicothe and Galesburg in Illinois.

Note: This DVD contains the original program from "Chiefs of the Santa Fe" SF-1 (35 mins) plus additional 23 minutes of new video.

There is a lot of passenger train imagery on this DVD. Unfortunately, either by design of the photographer or through the fault of the video editor, much of the consist of the trains is cut off. This is always disappointing to those of us who buy these videos with the hope of gleening passenger car information for some of these early time periods. If it is the video editor, then shame on A&R productions. It's not like an extra 10 minutes of passenger car footage would break the DVD. Anyway, there is still valuable historical information here. Worth having.

Additional remarks by Dallan:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value:: Fair.
