"The Royal Gorge" is a publicity film made in the late 1940s by Missouri Pacific, the Rio Grande and Western Pacific to promote travel on their jointly operated heavyweight train between St. Louis and Oakland. It presents footage of steam engines from all three roads, including D&RGW doubleheaders. The scenery is superb through Royal George, over Tennessee Pass, along the Great Salt Lake, and down Feather River Canyon.

When this program was first released on VHS only 20 years ago in 1999, there were only 2 films (Royal Gorge, & Trouble at Troublesome). Now in the final year of this decade (Pentrexï¿½s 35th year) 2019, another film was added on the DVD version, which was railroading with the Rio Grande. All 3 films are excellent. And these will take you back in time which was recorded way before the 1988 acquisition with Southern Pacific, and also for the 1996 Merger with Union Pacific. What a great mix of steam and Early Diesel action, in all of Colorado railroading.
