The Uintah Railway was a 75 mile railroad that operated from 1904 to 1939. It ran in northwestern Colorado from Mack, Colorado to Watson, Utah. Featuring the original film footage of the new 3 foot narrow gauge articulated locomotives in 1926 on the 7.5% grades of Baxter Pass. Our video combines the historic motion picture film from the Lucian Sprague family and the Colorado Railroad Museum archives with vintage photographs from the collections of several avid Uintah Railway enthusiasts. Modelers, historians, and photographers will all want to add this video of one of Colorado's most unique narrow gauge railroads to their collections.

The quality was what could be expected from early films. All in all was very pleased with it. I grew up in the area and this helped put a good spin on the Uintah Railway, also it's equipment, shops and mines. Perhaps more could have been said about the towns. A "Must Have" for fans.

I find things from the Uintah Railway very unique. Even though the 2-6-6-2T mallets had gone down to locomotive history because of their designs, it's very sad to realize that they were since dismantled after the railway was closed. So I use the railway in one of my books; Hero of Uintah with little inspirations I witnessed as a fan of fiction and history. Anyway, the Uintah Railway is probably the crookedest narrow gauge railroad that a few would cross the steep grades and sharp curves.

Very nice DVD for anybody who likes narrow gauge. Unfortunately, the speech is not translate in French, and in Europe, many people don't speak and understand English. Maybe one day the DVD becomes multimedia?
