The Utah Railway owns the only six MK50-3's built, and these together with five ex Australian SD50S's drag 15,000 ton coal trains up the 2.4% grade to Soldier Summit using all of the units roaring 38,500 horsepower creating an unforgettable spectacle. The line over Soldier Summit belongs to Union Pacific, and UP trains and BNSF trains on trackage rights, as well as the Utah Railway use the line. Features narration on/off.

TVD NOTE: The Blu-ray version has a minor error in the production. Instead of starting at the menu screen, it starts automatically with the narration OFF. All you need to do is hit the "Top Menu" or "Root" button on your remote and the menu will appear with the option to select narration or not.

This is a much improved production than Bailey Yard. I'm giving 3 1/2 stars. Pluses......good scenery, videography and narration quality. Misses.....I wish Highball would have included an on-screen map of the route. Also...scenes of the Utah RR home rails & junction w/ UP. And Utah RR going west, down grade toward Salt Lake City through the Gillouly Loops. There is some great scenery on the western slope.

IMO one word description: Boring!

If you like long and SLOW moving trains with little narration, you will probably like this. Every once in awhile Highball will produce and outstanding program and I buy them in hopes that I'll get another one. This one isn't one. The scenery and photography were excellent but it takes more than that to make a good production, IMO.

Two much better programs, both available in Blue Ray, are 7Idea's "Soldier Summit" and Railway Productions' "Utah's Incredible Soldier Summit". IMO Railway Productions' product is the better of the two.

worth it, footage of these units is hard to come by in a good production.
