Review of More of the Chiefs of the Santa Fe DVD

 4 of 5 (2)
Famed in song and legend, the Atchisan, Topeka and Santa Fe is a great railroad. Although now merged with the Burlington Northern, our video brings back the Santa Fe of long ago! We've heard that film on Santa Fe steam is somewhat rare. "Chiefs..." features the steam-diesel transition era in Cajon Pass and Sullivan's Curve. Mikados, 4-8-4's and 2-10-2's smoke it up with Santa Fe's great passenger fleet, either alone or as helpers on the point with the 1st generation diesels. The program starts with a black and white documentary produced by the railroad to promote the "Super Chief". From Chicago to LA, we experience all the amenities of this great train! From the various sleeping car types, to the lounges and diners and the luxury service, experience life on "the train of the stars". Experience the four seasons at Raton Pass through Colorado and New Mexico. First and second generation diesels parade through Raton, Starkville, Trinidad, around Wootton Curve
