The first 2 parts were shot in march of 1999 due to battery issues and the chief running late while parts 3-5 were shot in February of 2000 as prequel tapes to the Kansas City to Chicago programs.

Cab Ride through the Great Southwest is a 5 DVD set that begins in Kingman, AZ and ends in Albuqerque, NM with stopping points at Seligman, AZ; the Canyon Diablo Bridge; Houck, AZ; and Grants, NM. Volumes 1, 2, 4, and 5 were filmed on March 16, 1999 and involves a cab ride on an Amtrak Genesis P42 Locomotive #33 on Southwest Chief Train #4. Volume 3 is different in that it is filmed on February 15, 2000 on P42 Locomotive #83. As a result, much of this series is filmed one day after the Southern California Cab Ride which was filmed on March 15, 1999 and also involves the same engine. One interesting thing about the series is that the engineers in Volumes 1, 2, 4, and 5 wanted to remain anonymous unlike the other Southwest Chief cab ride programs where the engineers' names are explicity given.

Very Good Video although Disc 3 you're looking into the Sunrise so you don't see much until Winslow, AZ other than that its worth the Price i'd say

The scenery was good on all the discs. Could have used more narration especially when the 2nd track veered away from track 1.

Dvd's were good. Ride from outside of Flagstaff east was very poor. A different time of year would have been better. Did enjoy DvD's
