Review of Santa Fe Bluebonnets and Kodachromes Heritage Series DVD

Diverging Clear Productions is proud to release the next DVD in The Heritage Series. This program features the Santa Fe in four locations in Kansas, Missouri and Illinois.

The video footage was shot in 1988 and 1989, and locomotives in the black, red and yellow scheme of the recently aborted SPSF merger were abundant along with units in the Santa Fe blue and yellow scheme. In addition, vintage film and photos present a few scenes of the railroad as it was in the 1940's.

This program features the railroad as it was just before the reintroduction of the Warbonnet paint scheme.

The first location seen is Holliday Junction, west of Kansas City at Shawnee, Kansas. From there we head east to Marceline, Missouri. Then we continue east to see trains on Edelstein Hill west of Chillicothe, Illinois. The program finishes at Chillicothe, where we see freight trains pausing to change crews and Amtrak's Southwest Chief stopping for passengers.

This program is a great
