the liner notes:

There is probably no greater thrill than to witness one of the massive articulated or Mallet
type steam locomotives whooshing by at high speed with 100 or more cars, or blasting a
column of smoke skyward on a long freight drag up a steep grade.
Now you can experience this exciting action across America in the 40‘s and early 50‘s in stereo
sound and in full color. Some of the nation‘s finest 16mm rail fan photographers such as
Robert Flack, Emery Gulash, Tom Strid and Jerry Carson have collaborated to bring you one
of the most fascinating collections of ―steam‖ featuring action from Union Pacific, Duluth
Missabe & Iron Range, and Norfolk & Western.

D-007      Steam Across the Pacific Northwest                 Pentrex           From the
liner notes:
Thrill to the sight of Big Steam conquering the Pacific Northwest as SP Daylight 4449 takes to
the rails once more!
The mighty 4449 was painted black with BNSF decals to head up a BNSF Employee
Appreciation Special in July. Running excursions over former Burlington Northern trackage,
the Daylight treated enthusiastic throngs of spectators to the sights and sounds of thundering
steam power.      Pentrex was on the spot, capturing exciting scenes throughout the train‘s
extensive route. Starting in Vancouver, Washington, we follow the train across the state and
into British Colombia, Canada, and Idaho, visiting the cities of Tacoma, Seattle, Everett,
Bellingham, and Vancouver, B.C. A special highlight is a ride aboard the train along the
Puget Sound, from Balmer Yard in Seattle to Everett. You‘ll see the EAS travelling over
Stevens Pass – what an awesome sight that is! – and at the Skykomish and exciting Cascade
Tunnel. Travelling eastward, the train stops at Wenatchee and Spokane, then crosses the long
bridge over Lake Pend Oreille on its way to Sandpointe, Idaho. Dozens and dozens of
runbys fill the screen with scenic images of steam railroading. There‘s also plenty of freight
and passenger train action along the route, including Amtrak‘s Talgo trains.

D-008        Steam Photo Freights and Passenger Extras                     Pentrex
From the liner notes:
Return to yesteryear and thrill to the sight of steam locomotives hauling vintage freight
equipment! Hop aboard passenger trains operated especially for photographers! These
trains stop at scenic and usually inaccessible locations where passengers disembark, set up
their cameras while the trains back down the line, and then get spectacular action shots as the
trains steam past their cameras. At the Heber Valley Railroad in Utah and the Western
Maryland Scenic Railroad in Maryland, hard-working steamers pull freight equipment
including boxcars, tank cars and coal hoppers. This is the first ―photo freight‖ operated by
steam locomotive #75 since being acquired and overhauled by the Heber Valley. On the Cass
Scenic Railroad in West Virginia, old logging equipment is hauled by Shay locomotives to
emulate the line‘s heritage. Shay #11 is making its first outing since being converted from oil
to coal. In Colorado, the Durango & Silverton‘s annual Photographers’ Special makes stops at
locations deep in the Animas River Canyon where access is normally impossible. Recently-


                                                3
acquired locomotive #483 is a thrill to see in operation. Enjoy the excitement of steam
railroading performed in the timeless traditions of the past!

D-010     (NA)        Santa Fe Odyssey               Volume 1                Green Frog
From the liner notes:
 The action on this DVD is a result of many railfan trips by the noted rail photographer
Emery Gulash, although none of the trips were devoted exclusively to the Santa Fe railroad.
Emery captured enough 16mm color film to produce an incredible chronology of the Santa Fe
covering a period of almost 30 years! From 1952 until 1980, Emery shot the Santa Fe from
Chicago to the west. The DVD displays the Santa Fe FT freight units, the PA passenger
power, and a variety of switchers and road trains. The ―Warbonnet‖ paint scheme and the
change to the Santa Fe blue scheme is also covered in this chronology. There are a great
number of incredible shots of the famous passenger fleet, interspersed with freights over a
vast portion of the line.
This production has been totally re edited from original masters for both Video and Audio!

D-012     (NA) Steam To Spokane SP&S 700                  Pentrex              From the liner
notes:
After years of being on display in Portland, Oregon, the Spokane, Portland & Seattle 700
steam locomotive was brought back to life! This "Queen of Steam" put on a fabulous
excursion on its home rails in April of 2001. Her shiny black paint and yellow lettering
dazzled young and old alike as she traveled between Vancouver, Washington and Spokane.
You will see the 4-8-4 Northern-type locomotive pull 18 cars through the awe-inspiring
Columbia River Gorge and the rolling wheat fields and pine forests of Washington. The huge
locomotive is seen at such scenic locations as North Bonneville, Pasco, Providence Hill,
Sprague Lake, Latah Junction, and many others. You will also see the train arriving in the
town of Ritzville, where a special celebration was staged for its arrival.
The 700's crew left passengers and photographers breathless, performing awesome run-bys
with plenty of smoke, whistle, and speed! Here's your opportunity to experience one of the
most beautiful steam locomotives traveling through some of the most spectacular areas of the
Pacific Northwest. From rain to sunshine, including a few interesting surprises, this trip has it
all!

D-013 Above the Rails Combo DVD                      Pentrex       From the liner notes:
Here are two shows that lift you up into the skies above Southern California for an incredible
look at railroading as you've never seen it before!

Both great programs are now available on one DVD for the unbelievably low price of just
$19.95! This is a $50 value when purchased as VHS cassettes.

Above Southern California Rails (42 Minutes) Get ready for the ultimate railfan video as
Pentrex takes you into the skies to experience Southern California railroading as it's never
been seen before! Climb aboard a jet helicopter loaded with state-of-the-art, gyro-stabilized
video equipment. Then soar skyward to enjoy sweeping panoramas, pace speeding
locomotives, and get incredible aerial views of long curving trains.
Skim over the blue Pacific Ocean as we follow Amtrak trains and BNSF freights along the
"Surf Line" near San Clemente. Check out the newly-rebuilt BNSF yards in San Bernardino
and examine UP's West Colton Yard. Race the Talgo trainset as it travels through the Los
Angeles area. Then swing over to the harbor area for a bird's-eye view of container operations
and the brand new coal facility.
The weather is crystal clear and there are plenty of trains to be seen. You'll marvel at the
ultra-smooth, incredibly close, breathtaking photography as our helicopter cruises above

these fast freight and passenger trains. This video offers a perspective like no other!

Above 3751 Over Cajon (75 Minutes) Join Pentrex for a fantastic video experience! Santa Fe
steam engine 3751 traveled over Cajon Pass as it moved from Los Angeles to Sacramento to
attend Railfair '99. Pentrex was there to document this incredible journey, with multiple
camera crews capturing every highlight of famous Cajon Pass. As always, the handsome 3751
put on quite a show!
Our coverage begins as the engine and tender are pulled out of the Redondo Junction
Roundhouse in preparation for the trip. Then the big day arrives when the special train rolls
out of Los Angeles, through Santa Ana Canyon, and on toward San Bernardino. Pentrex
cameras are in the air, aboard the train, and on the ground showing this mighty locomotive
from every angle. Nowhere else can you find such outstanding shots of a steam locomotive at
work! Highlights include spectacular views of Sullivan's Curve, Mormon Rocks, the climb up
to Summit, Mojave Narrows, and fast running across the high desert to Barstow.
This video will give you a completely different perspective of Cajon Pass. Our jet-powered
helicopter with state-of-the-art broadcast equipment allows you to pace alongside the 3751
and hover over freight trains as they meet the steam special. You're railfanning from the
ultimate chase vehicle!

D-014        (NA)        B&O Odyssey Volume 2                 Pentrex           From the liner
notes:
Linking 13 Great States with the Nation - that was the slogan of the B&O Railroad. Step back
to the 1960s to see what made the Baltimore & Ohio one of the all-time great railroads!

The odyssey resumes in Michigan, shortly after B&O had merged with the Chesapeake &
Ohio Railway. Motive power and rolling stock of both railroads are frequently seen
intermingled. We catch the Cincinnatian and other passenger trains on the C&O route
between Detroit and Toledo, including the towers at Wayne Junction, Romulus, and Carleton.

Moving east we visit Connellsville, Pennsylvania and Brunswick, Maryland where freight
traffic is heavy. Motive power includes F-units and brand new GP30s. At Harpers Ferry,
West Virginia, perhaps the most scenic spot on the B&O, we see both passenger and freight
trains making their daily runs. Coal movements are captured at Hancock, West Virginia.
Returning westward we enjoy freight action in Pennsylvania and Ohio, then return to
Michigan for lots more passenger action.

Volume 2 of B&O Odyssey, which covers the years 1965 to 1968, is the second in a multi-
volume series based on the works of noted railroad photographer Emery Gulash. Collect the
whole series!

D-015      Train Meets       Double The Action           Pentrex          From the liner
notes:
We all feel pretty lucky when we're able to photograph two trains meeting each other.
Sometimes it's the result of careful planning, but more often it's just plain luck. Over two
years went into the filming of Train Meets-Double The Action, and the results are simply
spectacular! Every scene gives you two trains meeting or passing each other.

All the sites shown here are located in Southern California. The majority are on Cajon Pass, a
dynamite setting for exciting train action. You'll see side-by-side running as the trains battle
the grades of Cajon, always a thrilling sight. Each locale is identified by on-screen graphics,
but not until you've had a chance to see if you can figure out the exact location first!

There's a huge variety of motive power and equipment to be seen. BNSF locomotives in
Heritage II colors are plentiful. You'll also see motive power in various paint schemes from
Union Pacific (including the new UP design with the American flag proudly waving),
Southern Pacific, Santa Fe, Burlington Northern, Cotton Belt, CSX, and others. Doublestacks,
piggybacks, autoracks, mixed freight, and some passenger trains are shown.

The trains do the talking in this show, as there is minimal narration to interfere with the
throaty growls of hardworking engines or squealing flanges. On-screen graphics keep you well
informed about the locations you see. All four seasons of the year are represented, even winter
scenes showing snow on Cajon. With the camera poised to catch the movements from
interesting angles and meets galore, this is one show every railfan should see!

D-016 Daylight Freedom Special                       Pentrex                   From the liner
notes:
In March 2002, Daylight 4449 returned to the rails for the Columbia-Deschutes Special, a 2-
day excursion that took the mighty steamer through the scenic wonderlands of the Columbia
River Gorge and the Deschutes River Canyon. Making the trip even more remarkable was the
Daylight's patriotic paint scheme: the elegant steamer was repainted for this trip in the same
glorious red, white and blue colors she wore during her American Freedom Train tours of
1975-1976.

                                                7
The Columbia River Gorge and Deschutes Canyon provided outstanding settings for the
magnificent locomotive and her Freedom Train colors. The Deschutes River Canyon is an
inaccessible and visually stunning site where canyon walls rise 2,200 feet up from the tracks.
4449 looked gorgeous in her revisited colors, pulling former Amtrak "Heritage Fleet" and
Northwest Rail Museum Daylight cars, unassisted by diesel helpers!

Leaving Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington, the Daylight traveled the north bank
of the Columbia River for 110 miles. Then, turning south, she continued to Bend,
demonstrating her awesome power. Highlights include fantastic pacing sequences, high bridge
crossings, and an added segment showing the Daylight in all her different paint schemes!

DVD Special Features:
    Bonus footage: The 1976 Interurban Press film The American Freedom Train (25
       minutes) is included on the same DVD!
    Two stereo soundtracks, one with the natural train sounds, the other with narration

D-017 Fallen Flags Series Combo DVD                         Pentrex                     From
the liner notes:

Here, combined on one Combo DVD, are two shows presenting your favorite fallen flags.
These programs were filmed during the 1960s and 1970s at two of the country's railroading
hot spots: Chicago and the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul.

CLASSIC TWIN CITIES RAILROADING
Pentrex takes you back to the golden days of Minneapolis/St. Paul railroading in this, the
third in its popular Fallen Flags Series. All the footage in this presentation was shot during
Spring of 1970, just after the merger of Burlington Route, Great Northern, and Northern
Pacific which formed the Burlington Northern. All the railroads shown here are Fallen Flags:
Soo Line; Minneapolis, Northfield & Southern; Chicago & North Western; Burlington
Northern; Rock Island; and Milwaukee Road.

A wide variety of locomotive types can be seen, including Alco, GE, Baldwin, EMD, a
Fairbanks-Morse, a rare Baldwin DT-6-2000 centercab switcher, and an unusual home-built
electric switcher. You'll view locomotives painted in predecessor colors (Burlington Route,
Great Northern, Northern Pacific, and Chicago Great Western) as well as in the paint
schemes of the featured roads.

This nonstop parade of equipment is seen at Shoreham Yard, Glenwood Junction,
Westminster Tower, Belt Yard, St. Paul ("Pig‘s Eye") Yard, Dayton's Bluff Yard, St. Paul
Union Depot, Inver Grove, and the now-defunct Koppers Coke Plant with its custom electric

                                               8
switcher. A final highlight is a ride in a dome car on the Morning and Afternoon Zephyrs to
experience the sights between the Twin Cities. It's a fascinating and nostalgic journey!

Penn Central, but the big bankrupt fields an impressive array of motive power. In 1971,
Amtrak rolls on the scene. "Kaleidoscope" truly lives up to its name in the frantic
Bicentennial year. Over a dozen color schemes are viewed as Conrail is established as the new
tenant. Changeless, though, is a fabulous Allegheny panorama -- revealed in all four seasons.
