Western Railroad Video Sales List

The Western Railroad Video Sales List contains nine videos that I produced and several videos from other producers. In 1992, I began shooting railroad videos. The majority of my train footage was taken west of the Mississippi, primarily in the desert Southwest.

The following descriptions have links to AVI video clips so you can view samples from my productions. Each video clip is about 1.8 Megabytes and will run for ten seconds.

Currently available:

Western Coal Part 2 looks at the big show along the Orin Line in eastern Wyoming as BNSF and UP trains move nearly one million tons of coal per day out of the Powder River Basin. 57 minutes, in color, live audio, and narration $15.00
We caught a three train meet on Logan Hill. The first train was the CNAMSUD going to Superior, WI. The second train was the CCAPP going to Pleasant Prairie. As it was passing the CSLCBTM headed north on the middle main. This video has more than just long slow coal trains. Further south we caught the Laurel to Denver manifest at Cassa.
