Review of Utahs Incredible Soldier Summit in the Wasatch Mountains DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
This DVD shows Union Pacific's former Denver & Rio Grande Western mainline between Helper and Provo, Utah is a great place to watch trains.

Running over the Wasatch Mountains and Soldier Summit, this is a heavy-duty railroad with many maximum tonnage trains.

In this program, you'll see trains of the Union Pacific, Utah Railway, BNSF, and Amtrak as they climb up and over this twisting mountain railroad. This is a coal line, and you'll see some Utah Railway trains with as many as 10 units-4 on the front, with 6-unit manned helpers!

Enjoy action at all the great locations, including Helper, the tunnels at Nolan and Kyune, Summit, the Gilluly Loops, Thistle and much more!

Running time approx. 90 minutes. DVD includes chapter menus and the ability to turn the narration on or off.

This is a widescreen presentation (16:9). It will play just fine on an old-style TV (4:3), being shown in letterbox.

Shot with high-end broadcast equipment. Great railroadi
