Travel to beautiful northern Arizona and one of the most interesting stretches of railroad in the United States, BNSF's mainline over the Arizona Divide.
Visit the line between Kingman and Flagstaff, with great western scenery and over 60 trains a day. You'll see the split-level track in Kingman Canyon, rugged Crozier Canyon, the remote, beautiful Crookton Cutoff, and the beautiful alpine area between Williams and Flagstaff.

We start in Kingman Arizona and work east to Flagstaff Arizona. From valleys where the human eye can see for miles with mountain backdrops, to narrow ravines with 2 tracks hugging the sides if hills, we see an interesting array of landforms. There are multiple scenes with more than one train, in the modern colours of BNSF and the fallen flags that make up BNSF, to Union Pacific and other mainline road names, to old lease units some in Conrail colours and others. Even some pusher units working hard. These are mainline long distance trains... general manifests and plenty of intermodal service. And the trains are long in length. The regoin we are treated to is baren and desolate, but heading east, more evergreens do appear. The is little seen of human life outside the towns. Fence lines are apparent indicating livestock in the region, and even a few beef cows pose for the camera. Note the one room abandoned School house along the way showing it's age and the history of days gone by.
A great video that is well worth it's money. It will be a favorate here for many years to come. It is one of the best productions I have seen from Railway Productions. I highly recommend this video as a "must have".
