We focus on the West Central area of Texas, including Union Pacific, Burlington Northern & Santa Fe, and Amtrak operations. Lineside Video Productions is a professional railroad video firm in the United Kingdom. They have a series on American Railroads, on European Railways and programs on locomotives and loco rosters. These are quality, two camera, well-narrated programs. You will enjoy these new railfan videos! This is #11 in the USA Railroads Series, formatted for North American DVD (NTSC) standards.
The program begins with a manifest passing the wind farm at Loraine, then follows the UP east through Abilene to Clyde. Besides the usual UP power, a Ferromex ES44AC and CSX Transportation SD50-2 and C40-8W locos are on the tracks. The sparse BNSF traffic between Brownwood and Temple was exclusively GE Dash-9s. Having visited the Opal diamond, where the BNSF crosses the UP, the engine house at Temple is filmed from the footplate of a preserved AT&SF steamer. BNSF motive power on view include SD45-2B cab-less slaves, a GP39-3 in Heritage 3 livery, and a white-faced GP39M. Also see a rebuilt GP38-2 bearing Smurf blue livery.
Amtrak's Texas Eagle is seen through Holland, Hutto, and San Marcos. UP GP60's owned previously by St Louis South-Western Railway and Southern Pacific switch their train at McNeil, while GP50's operated by WAMX for Austin Western Railroad idle nearby, awaiting their next duties. Union Pacific's Sunset route is featured between Lissie and Sequin. Particular focus is applied to a busy morning at Flatonia, where a diamond crossing and junction with the line that runs south from West Point toward Mexico, lies on the western edge of town. Finally, we follow the UP north from New Braunfels to the state capital, Austin, where the cityscapes provide an impressive backdrop for Capital MetroRail services, and heavy freights crossing the Colorado River and traversing the Amtrak station.
