Review of Abo Canyon and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway

 5 of 5 (1)
A formidable barrier confronts all trains on the BNSF's main east-west route between Chicago, Illinois and Los Angeles, California. Boasting spectacular southwestern scenery, seven majestic bridges and located between Belen and Mountainair, New Mexico....it's the rugged and remote Abo Canyon.

Captured in Abo Canyon during a fleeting window of time following the merger of the Burlington Northern and the Santa Fe, this video features a once-in-a-lifetime collection of motive power types and paint schemes. The classic Santa Fe red and silver "War Bonnets" and the Blues join Burlington Northern green. A new BNSF design reminiscent of the old Great Northern orange and green paint scheme enters the scene. See the Dash 9-44CW, Dash 8-40BW, SD40-2, SD75M and others.

With Stunning photography and hard-to-reach locations, WB Video records history. Showcasing a combination of power and paint never to be witnessed again. This is a truly unforgettable piece of American railroading. Na
