Santa Fe's Clovis and Gallup Subs exist in a land of red rock bluffs, windswept mesas, and rugged canyons where Super Fleet diesels in red and silver Warbonnet paint lead high-priority intermodal trains and drag freights in unending numbers. Pentrex captured the beauty of New Mexico railroading Santa Fe style in 1994 prior to the merger with BN. These stunning images were taken during early mornings and late afternoons when long shadows and pastel hues enriched the southwestern landscapes and the trains glowed in vivid detail. Originally released as two separate programs, Volumes I and II have now been combined on one DVD, bringing you the full story of Santa Fe's New Mexico mainline in three hours of nonstop action. Featured are:

Volume I - The Clovis Subdivision
The stretch of mainline known as the Clovis Sub runs through the confines of Abo Canyon, a five-and-a-half mile passage with seven bridges and rugged outcroppings. Follow hot priority intermodals and drag freights west from Texas to Belen as red and silver Warbonnets work the line. (90 minutes)

Volume II - The Gallup Subdivision
Westbound trains climb the steep grade out of Belen on their way to the major junction of Dalies before heading west across the Continental Divide to the Arizona border. It's 180 miles of heavy-duty railroading where Santa Fe's engines, facing extreme weather conditions and rugged landscapes, are put to the test. (90 minutes)

I like that this is a combo DVD with both the Clovis & Gallup Subdivisions shown. As usual with Pentrex videos, the photography & narration are great.The scenery this railroad passes thru is spectacular (I like the southwest)& Penrex takes the time to explain both the terrain & the towns along the line. Subjects include business along the line & what impact the railroad has on various communities. I find a video much more interesting than just showing photography of trains going by. A great video of a great railroad>

Pentrex nailed it. Great natural lighting and scenery makes this about trains trekking through New Mexico instead of just run-bys in New Mexico. Pentrex simply captured what is there and didn't have to create viewer interest. Have ridden through New Mexico on the rails in this DVD and Pentrex hit the high points. Narration is great. One of Pentrex's best.

Additional remarks by trackside:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Definitely!
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Excellent Value!
Recommend to others? A "Must Have"!

With only a few years to the end of the Santa Fe, the railroad puts on a great show through some very rugged conditions. Lots of heavy long movements with the power working hard. For the scenery lovers.... there is lots here for your enjoyment.
