Santa Fe Odyssey Vol. 1
If you are interested in the Santa Fe RR and the time period from very late 50's to mid 70's, this video on DVD is hard to beat. The photographer, Emery Gulash was known for his train watching and rail fanning with his 16mm camera. He follows the Santa Fe Trains from Chicago all the way to the far reaches of the western approaches in California.
Lots of great action with F and E units to some U boats and early SD power. You get to see lots of the various passenger units as well as freight haulers and cabeese. You can also observe how these were put together as a consist. As this was the heyday of the Santa Fe, most of the units are in excellent condition and paint. Along the way you get some great scenery, several depot locations and their related areas as well as tons of trackage, bridges and crossings. Two hours and ten minutes worth of Santa Fe, narrated with train and unit numbers included. If your DVD software has a screen capture mode, you can tons of nice clear full color reference shots to tinker with.
The extra features include a picture gallery, a moving map of the route from Chicago to San Francisco, and a moving run through several of the period railroad schedules of the major passenger units. These are both slow enough that you can read town and city names as well as times and dates.
If you are a Santa Fe fan, this is a good one to catch.
