For over 100 years passenger trains were our link with the outside world. This video is a tribute to those trains and how they've touched our lives. Filmed in 16mm, with a superbly blended musical score, two award-winning cinematographers have captured some of the most exceptional railway vistas in the nation. Featured locomotives include Union Pacific 3985, 844 and E9s, Nebraska Zephyr, Norfolk & Western 611, Frisco 1522, and Southern Pacific 4449. These and many other great locomotives and trains offer spectacular viewing as they glide through the mountains, valleys, city-scapes and back country of America. There are also excursion specials, dinner trains, tourist lines, the Denver & Rio Grande Ski Train, plus great footage of Amtrak from coast to coast. And, seated next to the locomotive engineer, the viewer will take an exciting cab ride on the Southwest Chief. Running Time: 58 mins.
