Review of Chased by a Steam Train Vol 1 - Greg Scholl Video Productions

 5 of 5 (1)
Take a unique journey on the rails of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad in the Rocky Mountains, as we view a steam passenger train from in front of the train. Through special arrangements with the railroad we chartered a passenger train, and an escort train to use as a camera platform and videotaped the entire trip from Chama, New Mexico to Cumbres, Colorado. where the Pass is reached at an elevation of 10,015 feet. Our train resembles the former Rio Grande San Juan passenger train complete with authentic lettering on K-36 locomotive #484 as we view this awesome sight climbing through the Rockies. As we enjoy the scenery and natural train sounds, we will point out a few of the sights along the way, but you will see the train nearly the entire journey. The trip is incredible as you climb a 4% grade and into the snowcover during this late spring run that was made before the tourist season began. You will hear load exhaust from the 484 and watch the entire route unfold behind y
