Santa Fes New Mexico Mainline Combo DVD Train Video
Click to enlargeNote: Cover image may differ from actual product
Santa Fe's Clovis and Gallup Subs exist in a land of red rock bluffs, windswept mesas, and rugged canyons where Super Fleet diesels in red and silver Warbonnet paint lead high-priority intermodal trains and drag freights in unending numbers. Pentrex captured the beauty of New Mexico railroading Santa Fe style in 1994 prior to the merger with BN. These stunning images were taken during early mornings and late afternoons when long shadows and pastel hues enriched the southwestern landscapes and the trains glowed in vivid detail. Originally released as two separate programs, Volumes I and II have now been combined on one DVD, bringing you the full story of Santa Fe's New Mexico mainline in three hours of nonstop action. Featured are:
In Color with Hi-Fi Sound and Narration
Full-screen (4x3) Format
No region code; can be played in any NTSC DVD player worldwide

I like that this is a combo DVD with both the Clovis & Gallup Subdivisions shown. As usual with Pentrex videos, the photography & narration are great.The scenery this railroad passes thru is spectacular (I like the southwest)& Penrex takes the time to explain both the terrain & the towns along the line. Subjects include business along the line & what impact the railroad has on various communities. I find a video much more interesting than just showing photography of trains going by. A great video of a great railroad>

Pentrex nailed it. Great natural lighting and scenery makes this about trains trekking through New Mexico instead of just run-bys in New Mexico. Pentrex simply captured what is there and didn't have to create viewer interest. Have ridden through New Mexico on the rails in this DVD and Pentrex hit the high points. Narration is great. One of Pentrex's best.
