Review of Railfanning the West Vol 2 Wyoming Colorado 1978 DVD

 4.5 of 5 (2)
With rumors Union Pacific would be placing their 6900 series DD40AX's into storage, this trip became a must.

Following the UP mainline from Archer Hill, East of Cheyenne to Green River, Wyoming. The basic goal was to chase and photograph as many “Centennial" lead trains as possible.

Loco types seen include SD40-2's, DD35A+B's, GP-9's, GP-40X, U30C's on coal and ore moves, SD24B and GP30B in consists. SP tunnel motors and WP pool power. Unit PFE reefer trains are also captured.

Locations include Archer Hill, Cheyenne, Borie, Buford, Hermosa, Laramie, Rawlins and Green River.
Subtitled only, no narration or background music.
Color, Approximate running time: 57 minutes.

Aside from the content of the DVD, how would you rate the image quality (sharpness, camera steadiness, etc)? Poor.
A little rough around the edges.
