This fast-paced program features the Rio Grande Zephyr gliding along its entire 565 mile spectacular route. Shot between 1971 and 1983 in all seasons and weather conditions, this vintage footage was taken from the Zephyr as it wound its way through 28 tunnels climbing out of Denver along the Front Range to the 64 mile-long Moffat Tunnel.
In addition to documenting all the famous mountain, canyon and desert locations such as the renowned Glenwood Canyon and Soldiers Summit, the photographers captured the Zephyr in some of the more remote locations along the Dotsero Cutoff and Gore Canyon. There are exciting pacing sequences featuring the classic F9s, rare on-train footage of the full-service diner, and the climax features the last westbound and eastbound runs.

Running Time 60 mins
