Click to enlargeNote: Cover image may differ from actual product
The Gunnison line over Marshall Pass and the Monarch Branch were a part of the D&RGW(Rio Grande) Third Division, which started at Salida, Colorado. In this video we see films from 6 different sources with 95% of it color. We begin in Gunnison and watch engines at the servicing area and see the roundhouse. Later we ride the caboose right behind helper 492 and leaving the helper station at Sargeant, Colorado 492 is the rear pusher, with two more K-37 class engines on the front. After the three engine train we move to Salida and see action on the Monarch Branch as they haul limestone trains from the mine back to Salida. The first segment is single engine trains, then 2-engine trains.

Great scenery. Rare footage of Gunnison, Sargents, Marshall Pass, Mears Junction and Salida and its facilities.

listen to me. there is nothing wrong with the video itself. all of these scenes are 100% silent. there are other producers who dubbed fake sounds with silent footages. for example: the video rails classic collectors series. if you have those sets along with the sp overland route dvd, you'll know the differences.
