    Rocky Mountain Mainlines of the Rio Grande

    The Denver and Rio Grande Western and Santa Fe each had single track mainlines between Denver and Pueblo. During WW-I, the Railway Administration mandated the two lines become effectively double iron, with the Rio Grande main being southbound and the Santa Fe northbound, referred to as THE JOINT LINE. The Colorado & Southern also gained trackage rights on both. The C&S was a subsidiary of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy. Our program shows the variety of action on the lines. Rio Grande first and second generation diesels, Santa Fe cab units, CB&Q, Union Pacific and Burlington Northern in its infancy. The future of the Rio Grande's Tennessee Pass line today is in jeopardy but we take you back to a winter where second generation power was assisted over the Pass by covered wagon helpers based at Minturn. Sprinkled through the program for good measure are numerous runbys of Rio Grande steam- in the Royal Gorge and Redcliffe and more! This DVD has great color images you won't want to miss.
