Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

A real SALUTE! to the ATSF, with a history of the road, a detailed look at the Super Chief, a cab ride and a caboose on nearly every freight! Originally released in 1989 and by Pentrex in 1994, this is the first time it has appeared on DVD.
Take a trip on the Santa Fe - all the way back to its founding and forward in time to the late 1980s. The end of an era is close at hand her and Santa Fe F-units and FP45s head up the Super Chief and the San Francisco Chief just prior to Amtrak's takeover. Then hop aboard Santa Fe's first cross-country piggyback train, the Super C. We see the Super C out of LA, over Cajon Pass to Belen and then pulling into Chicago.

A short list of what is included in this amazing video: 90 MPH cab Ride, First Generation Warbonnets at work, ALCO PAs doing their passenger work, many named trains, the high-speed intermodal the Santa Fe became famous for...and a caboose ride. Hop aboard and give a Santa Fe Salute!

With a great variety of mainline freight and passenger trains, from the past with the iconic F units in warbonet colors to the present generations of the 80s with blue & yellow units plus other road names such as the Southern Pacific due to the failed merger in 1985 for example, as well as a musical montage of still images, noteworthy NKP 765 engineer Rich Melvin did an outstanding job narrating this program. There is also some steam in still images and early diesel power in both still images & vintage films. At the exact end of this program, there were plans to release part 2 of this title but unfortunately it wasn't made. If you love Melvin�s narration, this is a nice companion to other programs from Hopewell productions & machines of iron. The synthesized music in this program is really interesting to hear as well.
