Review of Blue Mountains Vols 1-3 Combo on DVD

 4.4 of 5 (11)
For the Union Pacific Railroad in the early 1990s, railroading in the Blues-the 200-mile segment of UP"s Oregon Division Mainline-meant staggering grades, extreme weather, and 3 daunting summits. Video Rails captured the power of the Union Pacific as it faced its toughest run and released the story of this northwest passage in three separate videos. Now, combined here for you on one action-packed DVD, are those three exciting shows! Featured are: Volume 1: La Grande to Huntington. Dramatic footage covers all the action from La Grande to Huntington. Climbing out of the Grande Ronde Valley and heading past Oxman Curve and through Burnt River Canyon, Dash 8-40CWs, SD40-2s, C36-7s, and SD60s take on the 2.2 percent grades of UP"s roughest helper district. Trailer trains, container trains, doublestacks, grain, soda ash, auto racks, and Amtrak are seen on this exciting journey. Volume 2: La Grande to Hinkle. Scale the Blue Mountains from La Grande northwest through Hilgard an
