Visit beautiful Oregon and Union Pacific's three heavy mainline grades through the Blue Mountains! In this program, you'll start at the Snake River and the Idaho state line, traveling over the mountains to Pendleton.

Along the way, you'll see trains crossing three steep mainline grades, Encina Hill, Telocaset Hill, and Kamela Hill.

This is UP's main route to the Pacific Northwest, and you'll see everything from locals to manifests to doublestack intermodals. This program was shot in late February, and the weather was unpredictable. One moment bright sunshine, the next heavy snow!

If you like contemporary railroading in a mountain setting, then this program is for you!

Running time 1 hour, 48 minutes. DVD features chapter menus and narration on/off.

This 2011 DVD features mainline freight trains battling up on one of the most steepest climbs in Northwestern railroading history. Some Clips from "844 Still Going Strong" is also included. And unfortunately, this was the Final Railway Productions video to have Lane Venardos narrating. Starting with Narrow Gauge Adventure, and Western Maryland Autumn Steam onwards the following October of 2011, Les Jarrett Himself is back in the narrating Business.

Sadly, the reason that this is the last program that Lane narrated, is because he died shortly after the program was released. While it?s sad not to have his voice in our programs anymore, I really miss talking with my friend while we worked on these projects.

Yeah. I still love all of your own videos both on DVD and for Free Amazon On the Go prime video. This is the same Ricky Freni who I met You back in July of 2009 where I buy 3 Greg Scholl DVDs 'cause you and Greg have since been best friends starting with the 1991 NRHS convention with 765 & 1225, but you were so close to meet him at the Cumbres & Toltec's rotary Snowplow for the opening of the railroad's 1991 season but never got a chance to meet him until the following August that year. As well as a TMBV Lionel Action Boxset, and your own own video of Challenger 3985 in 2008. How did Venardos died in 2011? was he diagnosed with some un-removeable cancer failures? did he have a stroke? a heart attack? a car Crash? or gunshot wounds? I can't believe that besides you and the late Lane himself, there are also 2 more narrators in your business. In the beginning of your business, there was Eric Greene from 1986-2000, and for a short time in 2006 and early 2007 only there was Patrick Reiber. Mainly because he kept talking to fast.

I wonder if the previous two reviewers watched the same program I did. I didn't think there was nearly enough narration. There were printed squibs naming towns trains were passing through with elevations, but even that wasn't true in all cases. One train had a car which appeared to have a hot box as smoke was pouring from one of its trucks, yet nary a word about it. I watched it in Blue Ray and I don't think even that was used to its fullest in a countryside which was made for Blue Ray. On balance a so-so DVD, IMO.

This is an awesome DVD I really enjoyed watching the photography is excellent as is the informative narration that keeps the viewer informed. Anybody who likes big time Union Pacific main line action its all here from stacks to racks and plenty of manifest freights. A++++
