Auckland City Rails 1 & 2 COMBO

Welcome to Auckland City Rails 1, where you’ll see New Zealand’s rail carrier TranzRail in action. We begin our tour with a look at various North and South bound trains running at main line speeds through South Auckland as they depart and enter Auckland on the North Island Main Trunk (NIMT) railway. We then hop over to the Auckland City Port to witness the delivery of a load of containers and sit back as we see the straddlers at work - one has to admire the driving skills involved. We then take a visit to the two Auckland City tunnels: the Newmarket Branch tunnel under Parnel Road, where we see TranzMetro DMU’s (Diesel Multiple Units) and then a longer look at the Orakei Branch tunnel under Glen Innes - where once again we see the DMU’s, as well as the local freights between Westfield Yard and the Ports of Auckland. The show rounds off with a long look at the various shunting operations at Westfield Yard in Otahuhu, as well as arrivals and departures..

A Soldier Summit Winter
EJVSSW

A Soldier Summit Winter

Mention Soldier Summit to any avid railfan, and immediately the names of Helper and Price Canyon Utah come to mind. Images of long trains with mid train helpers are also invoked, with the Utah Railway, Union Pacific and BNSF all sharing the same pass adding to the excitement of railfanning this historic landmark. Combine all of this with a good covering of snow and you have a recipe for railfanning that has never been better. Soldier Summit is immersed in American history, and its unforgiving weather has taken its toll on both human life and machinery. The original track was laid by the Denver & Rio Grande Western railway and it was soon evident that a helper service was required to move the trains over the 4 percent grade. As a result, the town of Helper emerged – born from the needs of the railroad. New Zealand railfan Michael Adams visited the USA in the winter of 2009 and 2010 and was fortunate to time his visits with a healthy dumping of snow. This one hour product..

Working on the Railway - Otaki Ballast Clean
EJVWOROB

Working on the Railway - Otaki Ballast Clean

On February 12, 2012 KiwiRail's track maintenance teams from Palmerston North embarked on a mission to run a ballast cleaning operation over a section of track on the North Island Main Trunk at Otaki. The equipment list in use on this day was impressive... One Ballast Cleaner, six Conveyor Wagons, one Tamper, one Regulator, one Stabilizer, one DC Locomotive, four support wagons, excavators, dump trucks and all the manpower necessary to achieve the task. As soon as the last train went through (northbound Overlander), the work crews sprung into action. Soon after the air was heavy with the sound of ballast being moved under huge mechanical force. Witnessing all this machinery in action is a rare treat, and to time it with a pleasant Sunday afternoon from many vantage points was an added bonus. This program shows all the equipment in use, how it works and how each has an important role to play. Multiple angles provide rare glimpses of this machinery in motion. Videog..

The three volumes of USA Rails in one Box Set. USA Rails 1 - Midwestern Encounters American trains are big - very big, and EJ Videos is pleased to have headed off shore to the USA to bring you this video featuring close up, in your face, big time American railroad action. Railroads featured are the Union Pacific, the Burlington Northern Santa Fe and the passenger carrier Amtrak. Kansas City Missouri, Benson Arizona and the Californian cities of San Diego and Fullerton put on a plethora of train action, from high speed freights to sleek Superliners. High horsepower means big trains - and a combined rating of over 8000 horsepower on the front results in some big tonnage being hauled - with most trains having well in excess of 100 freight cars.

USA Rails - Foreign Power on the BNSF BLU-RAY

Since its inception in 1995, the Burlington Northern & Santa Fe Railway (BNSF) was quick to devise a new livery for its fleet, and was just as quick to re-paint and re-brand its locos – demonstrating that this was a company on a mission to get its name out there and generate business. The fallen flags of BN green and SF warbonnets were soon replaced by the much loved/hated pumpkin orange. Partly due to the an upturn in business since the Financial Crisis, and partly due to the requirement to comply with California's strict carbon emission requirements, the BNSF found itself with a shortage of motive power. This is where the leased locos step in – with BNSF calling upon Citirail, Canadian National, Canadian Pacific, Norfolk Southern, Kansas City Southern and CSX Transportation to help with the power shortage. Generally, BNSF trains entering California’s southwest basin only have the latest GEVO units in their consist, with leased locos being replace..

USA Rails - Cajon - Frost to Colton BLU-RAY

The journey through Cajon Pass takes the railfan to two must see locations: the under / over at Frost, Victorville, and the Pepper Ave overpass across the Union Pacific yard at Colton. In between these two points is Cajon Pass in all its railfanning glory. This production covers Frost, Cajon Junction, Mormon Rocks, Summit, Colton Yard and a relatively new development for railfans - Silverwood. Silverwood is an alternative to the infamous Hill 582 and provides easier access and closer proximity to the trains. Situated on an elevated island formed from the natural landscape, Silverwood was created by a small group of railfans and offers excellent views of all four tracks. The Mormon Rocks are probably the most photographed natural rock formations in the USA, and those in the know will be there to capture the morning light on these amazing formations, providing a stunning back drop to the continuous parade of rolling thunder. Both the BNSF and Union Pacific are well repr..

The Nevada Northern Experience
EJVTNNE

The Nevada Northern Experience

The Nevada Northern Railway was born in the early years of the twentieth century out of the desire to exploit the copper ore deposits located within the surrounding area of Ely and Ruth, Nevada. Through a series of corporate transactions, the Nevada Northern eventually became a subsidiary of the Kennecott Copper Corporation, and with declining ore reserves and copper prices, the smelter at McGill ceased operations in 1983, with the railroad itself suspending all operations soon after. However all was not lost. In 1986, Kennecott transferred the entire Ore Line, including the railroad's yard and shop facilities at East Ely tothe White Pine Historical Railroad Foundation which now operates the railroad as the Nevada Northern Railway Museum. Owing to its remoteness, the facilities at East Ely were never modernised, and visitors are permitted to venture through the yards and workshops where they'll encounter a truly authentic historic railroading experience.

Montana Winter Blues
EJVMWB

Montana Winter Blues

The Montana Rail Link is a Class 2 railroad that stretches over 900 miles from Billings Montana to Sandpoint Idaho and Spokane Washington. The railroad has many challenges in its day to day operations, two of them being Bozeman Pass between Livingston and Bozeman Montana, and MullanPass between Helena and Missoula Montana. Both passes have tunnels -Bozeman being 919 m and Mullan1044 m. The MRL connects with the BNSF Railway at both ends of its network and provides a helper service for their enormous grain and coal trains to help battle the two passes. Helpers can be inserted mid-train or at the end and are assigned to high horsepower SD70ACe locos, with older SD45 and SD40's assisting as necessary. Winters are tough on the MRL with temperatures regularly dropping to minus 20 degrees C, with heavy snow falls also needing to be contended with. As a result, winter photography on the MRL is not the domain foryour average railfan, with extraordinary efforts required to..

Canadian Thunder 8 - Jasper & Yellowhead Pass

Jasper, Alberta, is widely regarded as the tourist Mecca of the Canadian Rockies. During the winter months this small town is teaming with visitors eager to enjoy the delights that the snow has brought. Late spring is an ideal time to visit if minus 15 degree temperatures aren't your thing. The sun is out, the air is warm and the mountain peaks are capped with a dusting of snow - setting the scene for some remarkable railroad photography. The Canadian National Railway has a small yard located at Jasper which varies daily from empty to bursting. With Jasper being a crew change point, accomodation is provided for the many crews that pass through. VIA Rail's Skeena and Rocky Mountaineer also terminate here and are parked up overnight. Proceding west, we enter Yellowhead Pass where we strike a busy morning with shots from Decoigne, Lucerne, Moose Lake and Red Pass. Discreet subtitles provide location information. ..

Canadian Thunder 7 - Alyth to Edmonton

Southwest of downtown Calgary is the 168 acre sprawling mass of Alyth Yard. With a 48 track hump yard, it has a capacity of over 2200 freight cars and is considered one of the busiest yards on the CP network. 300 kilometres to the north at Edmonton is Walker Yard, CN's answer to it's southern competitor. Our journey trackside begins in an industrial area along Portland Street, Calgary - a favourite after hours haunt for railfans - that has an unobstructed view of the rail operations at the western end of Alyth Yard. Here we'll witness westbound departures and switchers tirelessly building up and breaking down trains. We then head north to Edmonton via Crossfield and Bowden, to East Junction, rounding off with some early evening action at Union Junction. Discreet subtitles provide location information. ..

Canadian Thunder 6 - Lake Louise to Fort MacLeod

East of Rogers Pass, the Canadian Pacific Railway has a fairly easy grade following the banks of the Bow River all the way to Calgary. Our journey commences at the town of Lake Louise where we set up beside the old railway station, which is now a restaurant. Just 1 km away on the Bow Valley Parkway is the infamous Morants Curve - named after CP special photographer Nicholas Morant who snapped many a photo of the CP at this location. A brief visit to the tourist trap of Banff is followed by a good look at some switching operations at the small yard of Exshaw. Bright skies and the Rocky Mountains set an idyllic scene. We then leave the Rocky Mountains in our wake and head south to Lethbridge - site of the High Level Bridge that spans the Old Man River. This 1624 metre long structure dwarfs the trains that use it. West of Lethbridge is the CP Kipp Yard which is visited often by the Union Pacific. Here we witness some more switching, followed by catching a train departing at ei..

Canadian Thunder 5 - Eagle Pass to Field

Rogers Pass need no introduction for railfans. This mountain pass is steeped in railroad history, with many books and printed media documenting the challenges faced by the Canadian Pacific Railway. Our journey commences at Craigellachie, a tourist stop just west of Eagle Pass, where the director, Sir Donald Smith, drove the last spike for the CPR on 7 November 1885. We then head east. Eagle Pass is followed by an extended visit to Revelstoke, where the Monashee Mountains provide a suitable backdrop for rail operations. Continuing east through Rogers Pass, we pause at Station Markers Beavermouth and Fraine, before taking a side line trip along Donald Cemetery Road. KC Junction at Golden is where the Windermere and Mountain subdivisions meet, both of which pass through town. East of Golden is one of the few places where trains can be seen along the Kicking Horse River, with the program concluding at the small hamlet of Field - a town that is blessed with 360 degree views of rugg..

Canadian Thunder 4 - Kamloops to Notch Hill

At the confluence of the North and South Thompson rivers is the city of Kamloops - population 85600. As do the rivers, the railroads also meet here; the CN from the north and the CP from the east. Both strike a path west along the shores of Kamloops Lake, albeit on opposite sides. Our journey covers just three locations: Kamloops, Chase and Notch Hill – a total distance of 80 km. However the scenic variety gives the illusion that many different areas were visited. From Kamloops we visit both lines on either side of Kamloops Lake and from Notch Hill we take in the sights and sounds of heavy freight being hauled up a horseshoe curve. In between is the small town of Chase, where a passing loop allows us to catch a few trains rolling by. Discreet subtitles provide location information. ..

Canadian Thunder 3 - Hope to Ashcroft

Heading east from the city of Vancouver, sprawling plains and urban living soon gives way to steep hills and an abundance of greenery. The gentle flow of the Fraser River is transformed into a raging torrent as it passes through the canyons north of Hope, and at Lytton the Thompson flows into the Fraser, providing a pass for both railroads and highway. With the highways taking the same path as the railroads, many opportunities arise to railfan the Thompson and Fraser. We commence our journey at Harrison Hot Springs, a dot on the map between Agassiz and Hope. Continuing along the Lougheed Highway takes us to Hope where we swing north and follow the Trans Canada Highway. The passing loop at Chapmans is a rare gap in what initially is a solid wall of trees, and the small town of Boston Bar opens up a world of possibilities, with both the CN and CP providing the railfan with many offerings. The program concludes with an extended visit to the Ashcroft Terminal. This location ..

Canadian Thunder 2 - Vancouver Uncovered

The city of Vancouver has a large network of railway lines that encompasses freight and passenger operations from various rail operators. Despite this, and the large number of rail movements in the city, railfanning here is generally considered difficult owing to buildings, trees, the proximity of freeways and security fences blocking access. The contemporary railfan therefore has to resort to the outer reaches of the city to fulfil their needs; by heading south to Delta and east towards Hope. This production explores these districts, commencing at Roberts Bank at Delta, followed by a brief spell at Port Moody, before visiting the Southern Railway of British Columbia (SRY) Yard at New Westminster where we witness a BNSF turn interchanging with the SRY. We then head east to the Port Haney Station at Maple Ridge for some high speed action, and conclude at Mission City.

The Canadian Pacific Railway tackles the Rocky Mountains head on, striking a path through the daunting Rogers Pass, preferring to go up and over rather than follow the Columbia River. Further north, the Canadian National Railway can take things a little easier through the Yellowhead Pass, running adjacent to the Miette and Fraser Rivers. Both railroads are surrounded by some of the most stunning scenery on offer; snow capped rugged peaks skirted by a seemingly impenetrable layer of cedars and pines. This one hour program provides a sample of the CP and CN in action, where the focus is on capturing the landscape, as well as the all important trains. Locations visited include Hope, Revelstoke, Field, Golden, Jasper, Lake Louise and much more. Discreet subtitles provide location information. ..
