Moffat Road Part 1 - Denver to East Portal DVD Train Video
In Central Colorado where the Great Plains meet the Rockies, trains battle a short, stiff grade to the Continental Divide. Denver business man David Moffat spent his entire fortune building this engineering marvel. Although he never lived to see its success, this stretch of track was instrumental to the growth of Colorado and remains a busy main line today.

Very good. Good shots from far away so you can see the entire train at once going around the curves to get to the mountains.

A fantastic DVD that offers the viewer great photography breath taking scenery informative narration and a nice verity of action from UP, BNSF and Amtrak. Both Volumes are a must have for any modern day rail fan.

Beautiful Blu-Ray/DVD, I liked how 7 IDEA have gone the extra mile to film in slightly different locations to the norm. It gives the viewer an insight as to what the subject area is/was like. The beauty of Colorado is astounding.

See my review of The Moffat Road 2, West Portal to Glenwood Springs

I am more interested in the civil engineering of routing and constructing the railroad, than in the operating equipment passing over the road. Balloon curves and loops to gain altitude, and trestles, tunnels, wyes and sidings in complex topographies are what attract my attention. Rerouting to increase operating speed and economy of operation are interesting, but few videos concentrate on those aspects. On the other hand the scenery photography is spectacular. Some attention to historical realities of the Moffat Road over the mountain range before the Moffat Tunnel would have been appreciated. I know I am criticizing a program that wasn't meant to slake my particular appetite, so if this one floats your boat this is an excellent show. All this applies to Part 2, West Portal to Glenwood Springs, too.
