Semaphores, Searchlights & the Southwest Chief-Train DVD

Semaphores, Searchlights & the Southwest Chief-Train DVD
Click Here for Larger Image
Travel to southern Colorado and northern New Mexico and BNSF’s Raton & Glorieta Subdivisions, home to Amtrak trains #3&4, the Southwest Chief. This is a comprehensive look at the former AT&SF line between La Junta, Colorado and Albuquerque, New Mexico andt and the passenger trains that run over it.

This route is the last place in the United States to see semaphore signals running outside of a railroad museum, and you’ll enjoy an in-depth look at them. But there’s much more to this route than the semaphores, it’s an incredibly rugged and scenic railroad in it’s own right, and you’ll see all of it.:

  • See the Chief race across the Great Plains out of La Junta
  • Watch the Delhi wig-wag in action
  • See the climb over the 3% grade of Raton Pass
  • See all three stands of semaphores before the 2020 replacements took some away
  • See 1960-era searchlight signals, antiques in their own right.
  • Enjoy the beautiful scenery of Glorieta Pass
  • See the Chief in Shoemaker and Apache Canyons
  • Covarage of the Chief running over the NMRX Albuquerque Subidvision.
  • Enjoy the route from both trackside and on board.

    Fantastic coverage of one of the most iconic lines in railroading.

    If you've ever seen our America By Rail videos, this program is similar, using an encore of music from composer Michael Lynch, which is used during the on-board segments which also incorporate scenes with no sound (drone video) or scenes overpowered with New Mexico wind noise so the wind sound has been removed. But don't fear, there are plenty of train sounds, especially growling up Raton and Glorieta Passes! Includes chapter menus, narration on/off. Running time 2 hours, 15 minutes.
