Cab Ride along the Santa Fe Trail is a 6 DVD set that begins in La Junta, CO and ends in Albuqerque, NM with stopping points at Trinidad, CO; Raton, NM; Wagon Mound, NM; Starvation Peak, NM (Chapelle Siding); and Lamy, NM. This series of programs was filmed on March 17, 1997 and involves a cab ride on an Amtrak Genesis P42 Locomotive #18 on Southwest Chief Train #3.

There are several features unique to this set that are interesting unlike the other Southwest Chief cab ride videos that Railway Productions offers. For example, at the end of the 3rd volume at Levy Siding and for the duration of the trip to Albuquerque, the 2nd unit, #21, has a malfunctioning problem in that it has trouble getting fuel from its fuel tanks and as a result alarm bells keep periodically ringing in Volumes 4, 5, and 6 with the first alarm coming at the end of Volume 3 at Levy Siding. Another example is that in Volume 5, at Fox Siding a meet is made with Amtrak #4.

Overall, this is a great cab ride video as with all of the other Southwest Chief cab ride videos that Railway Productions offers.
