If you liked our "America By Rail" videos, you'll LOVE this DVD. Shot and edited in the "ABR-Style" with music composed by PBS composer Michael Lynch. Visit one of the most outstanding railroads in the USA. The C&TS RR is one of the best preserved steam railroads to be found anywhere, running through the West's finest scenery.

This DVD shows the entire line from Antonito, Colorado to Chama, New Mexico from the train and trackside. This is one of the most rugged railroad lines in the country, something that you won't want to miss! Lots of smoke, steam, and pretty golden October trees. A DVD that the entire family will enjoy. Includes snow scenes and the Rotary Snowplow.

As an added treat, we've included 25 minutes of bonus footage not found in the VHS version! The bonus footage contains no music and no narration...just the trains and their sounds.

DVD includes chapter menus.

The footages of Les Jarrett & Greg Scholl, the narration of the late Eric Greene, Mike Lynch's music, this "America by rail" style tape is always a must for every visitor, child, and what to plan on when visiting Colorado and/or New Mexico. Despite the Video Was Made in 1999.

Have the video, but, wanted another copy for a friend. But I have to tell you - this is the best (again) this is the best experience I have ever had dealing with a vendor. It shipped within hours of my placing the order. It was exactly as described. It was the best packaging I have ever seen. It was here in three days. You simply cannot find service like this anywhere. These folks really care about the customer. No, I am not related to the vendor.

Narrow Gauge steam, high in the mountains is interesting indeed. In this video, we see the entire line between Antonito Colorado and Chama New Mexico on the Cumbres and Toltec Railroad. And we see it in different seasons with the big snow blower working, in May. Railway Productions does a nice job with narration, which includes the history of the region and some old photographs that is in black and white. And there is a detailed map for anyone who is considering a visit to ride the Cumbres & Toltec. There are various camera angles which give a good prospective of the region and very high elevation. Note: for scenery lovers... the high elevation does take away some of the scenery that You will find on other tourist railroads. While I enjoyed the video, I will admit that it is not on my favorate list of Steam Excursion Trains. For the video collector, the important thing here is that the video is narrow gauge. Enjoy.
