Etching a course through Southern Idaho and along its western border with Oregon, the Snake River provides a natural route for Union Pacific trains heading to and from the Pacific Northwest. This is the route of the Oregon Short Line, and trains have been rolling through this wild and scenic country since 1884.

In Part 1 of this two-part series, we are focusing on the western portion of the line from Huntington, Oregon to Nampa, Idaho. The scenery transitions from rugged canyons to rich agricultural land and industry as trains sprint through the lush Treasure Valley. We will visit the communities of Weiser and Payette, Idaho before crossing the Snake River back into Oregon at Ontario and on through Nyssa. Crossing one last time into Idaho, the line continues along the course of the Boise River to the southeast through Parma, Notus, and Caldwell before arriving at the division point of Nampa.

Several mixed manifest trains are seen daily, along with hot Z trains, and heavy soda ash trains from Wyoming. An army of locals work out of Nampa and a few branch lines are seen in action like the Oregon Eastern Railroad at Ontario and the Boise Valley Railroad at Caldwell.

I am a huge fan of 7idea, and have the majority of their releases. You can always count on crisp, clear videography, informative narration, and (typically) great scenery, highlighting mainline freight action. This last point, which I realize, is nothing more than a personal-preference, has always been one of my main reasons for my purchases. The second half of this disc features "an army of locals out of Nampa and branch lines...". Suffice it to say, the second half of the disc, showing locals setting out cars in primarily industrial-areas, was not my cup of tea (again, my personal preference), and repeat-viewing will probably be of the first half only. I enjoyed the first half of the disc, which shows the nice scenery along the Snake River. Again, this disc was ok, but based on my preferences for scenic, mainline freight action, was not a stand-out.

Additional remarks by Curt Cruthirds:
Narration: Just enough.
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value:: Fair.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
