Across the Top - Steam in the High Rockies DVD
Historic footage from the 1930s and ‘40s includes a handful of shots of double-heading on the summits and steep grades.
The 1930's: The ore trains descend from the Blackhawk Mine on the Colorado Central to Clear Creek. Quadruple headers battle upgrade through South Platte Canyon on The South Park Line. Take the last passenger train from Leadville to Denver.
The 1940's: Ride the "San Juan" from Toltec to Durango. Both freights and mixed trains work on the Silverton. Crest Marshall Pass and shoot down the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. See the "Shavano", the Transcontinental Express of the thirties, at Gunnison and the Colorado Museum's 346 as it really used to be. Finally, climb aboard and pull the throttle on the climb from Leadville to Climax. Includes early 1400 class Mallets double-heading and the monster 3400 series, the last steam built for D&RG.
