In 1966, Lucius Beebe authored the classic homage to heavyweight varnish, “The Trains We Rode”. In this program, we continue our journey to pay tribute to some of the smaller, more obscure operations—railroads public and private and often overlooked. These are The Trains We Missed.
Starting with logging railroads, we’ll visit a logging railroad that in its heyday ran a 72-mile mainline with 6% adverse grades, and be treated to action on board, filmed by Stan Kistler. We’ll see some brand new diesel locomotives being put into service to replace their steam brethren, filmed by John Kirkland.
Next, we’ll visit mining railroads, ranging from two-foot gauge teapots dancing on uneven track beside narrow gauge steam, to first generation diesels pulling loads to smelters.
Are you ready for an immersive viewing experience? We guarantee that you will see, hear and feel the difference in the immersive quality of the picture and sound of The Trains We Missed!
