Tennessee Pass is the highest railroad mainline in the continental U.S. Volume 1 of this series examines the westbound route of this vanishing line from Pueblo to Minturn, Colorado. Trackside shots and cab rides catch the spectacular scenery and the hardworking ACs all along the line. Don't miss these ACs in action through Royal Gorge, Tennessee Pass, and down the 3% grades on the western side, with the sound of dynamics whining.

Continuing our series on Tennessee Pass, Volume 2 captures train activity during all four breathtaking seasons on this mainline. In this video, we see why helpers are necessary to assist trains up the grueling 3% grade on the western side, and we take a look at some of the foreign power used on this SP line. We also visit the Minturn terminal, and ride along in the cab from Minturn to the Pass. Incredible machines and spectacular scenery on a disappearing line.

I have just about everything available on the last days of Tennessee Pass and this one is the finest of them all. The camera angles, the locations, really bring to life the struggle of heavy trains on the highest mountain railroad pass in the USA. Watching NINE thundering AC 4400's bring loaded coal trains east upgrade and DPU powered taconite trains down that same 3.3% grade is big power mountain railroading at it very best. And these DVD's show it all in high drama. Excellent.

Why only three stars when everything you say in your text is superlative?
