Diesels on the Union Pacific

You are on the Union Pacific mainline west of Cheyenne, Wyoming . It's the 1980's and the venerable 6,600 horsepower DDA40X Centennial 6900's have been reactivated for one last stand. Watch this example of Union Pacific's quest for big power as it climbs Sherman Hill and roars westward past Tie Siding and on to Colores, Wyoming. The EMD SD40-2 and the GE U30C, both rated at 3,000 horsepower, are also seen in abundance. Get close to the action as we tour the Cheyenne Yards. Then from the Yardmaster's Tower we get an overall view as trains arrive and depart this busy division point.
Diesels on the Union Pacific...the Sequel

Return to the 80's again for further adventures of the SD40-2, the U30C and the DDA40X Centennials on the Union Pacific mainline out of Cheyenne, Wyoming. We explore the New Line west of Cheyenne and experience the fury of a Wyoming blizzard as trains battle snow out of Cheyenne. The blizzard continues as we meet the Amtrak "San Francisco Zephyr" at Borie. Climb aboard Centennial #6922 for an exciting ride in the cab of this famous locomotive from Denver to Cheyenne.

Overall an excellent DVD-the picture quality is great when you consider that it was all filmed about 30 years ago,plenty of action,great scenery that was well shot.Sometimes a little bit more narration would be beneficial in describing some of the many locomotive variations seen throughout the film(although most are easily identified).The only complaint that i have with this film is there isn't as much Double Diesel action as i thought there would be-this isn't a bad thing as such,as there is plenty more to see,just I would maybe use Sherman Hill Diesel Action in the early '80s as the selling point rather than double diesels. Apart from that little gripe,an excellent DVD,well worth purchasing!!

Additional remarks by Mick Sargent:
Narration: Could have used more.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value: Excellent Value!
Recommend to others? A "Must Have"!
