The Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe's main line from Chicago to Los Angeles is one of America's major rail arteries. Photographer Fred Crissey captures action on the Santa Fe from 1982 to 1988 showcasing this classic railroad's operations through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and Colorado. Spectacular scenery is also shown through the rugged and scenic Raton Pass.
Locomotives include GE U Boats, GP-20's, SD-40 dash 2's, SD-45's and FP-45's in their classic blue and yellow scheme. Also included are engines painted with the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific failed merger colors. Nearly all trains in this show include cabooses!
Awesome scenery from the plains of the Midwest to the Desert Southwest is what made the Santa Fe a railfan's favorite! Don't miss the Santa Fe in the 1980's!

By the looks of the cover this looked like an awesome DVD to have, but it was hard for me to get into this DVD, all the photography was transferred from supper 8 film there was a lot of noise in the quality of the photography most trains are cut off right after the power goes by in some cases before all the power got by, i don't remember seeing much in the way of caboose shots ether, camera work is rough with some shots having to much shacking. If your a die hard Santa Fe fan and the lack of quality in the filming doesn't bother you then you might like it but for me I'd save my money for something done on the Santa Fe from Green Frog, Pentrex or one of the other DVD producers who can clean up that super 8 film and make it look like it was shot yesterday.

Additional remarks by Mysp7377:
Narration: Could have used more.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: A little rough around the edges.
DVD Value: Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.

Excellent video, the only thing that limits this video is the lack of full train shots. There is a lot of information you can get to help you model your trains prototypically. It is definitely a well watched video, Thank You!
