Review of Rail Explorations DVD

 3.5 of 5 (6)
From Arizona to Missouri, Rail Explorations is a fascinating trip across seven states as we deliver the interesting and the unusual for your enjoyment. We invite you to join us as we explored the rails for the best sights to be had.

Our journey takes you to the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic, the Abilene & Smoky Valley and the Grand Canyon Railway tourist lines. You'll get a fascinating look at 50-kilovolt electrics pulling trainloads of heavy coal on the Black Mesa & Lake Powell. We also caught great action of ALCO C420s smoking it up on the Arkansas & Missouri. If that's not enough, in eastern Kansas on the Midland Railway, you'll take a cab ride on an RS3, and later, watch as it performs a great runby for our camera. There is even some mainline action to be had along the BNSF, KCS, and UP.

From gorgeous scenery to exciting locations and trains, there is all this and a whole lot more to experience and enjoy in Rail Explorations!
