Missouri Hot Spots-Kirkwood Hill
Join us for a tour of one of Missouri’s most popular railfan hot spots, Kirkwood Hill. Kirkwood is a suburb of St. Louis and is home to the St. Louis Transportation Museum.
This former double-tracked Missouri Pacific line is now owned and operated by the Union Pacific Railroad. This hill is an operational nightmare with its formidable grade that crests near the Kirkwood Depot and the numerous “S” curves leading to the top of the hill.
Neff Video spent two days not only in Kirkwood but also in the area west of Kirkwood including action at Grays Summit, Eureka, and Pacific, Missouri. Burlington Northern/Santa Fe runbys are included as well as their track, the former Frisco, parallels the UP tracks in the Eureka/Pacific area.
Freight action as well as Amtrak runbys are included. Enjoy beautiful fall foliage at its peak. One hour (45 minutes of program plus 15 minutes of new previews),
Full color, stereo sound, and no narration. On screen graphics indicate locations.
St. Louis Sojourn
An Historic venture to visit the St. Louis Union Station, and other locations in and around St. Louis, for a weekend of train chasing. To compliment the occasion, rail transport from Detroit to St. Louis was via Norfolk and Western's night train, the 'St. Louis Limited'.
Convenient night travel allowed for two enjoyable days of railfan delights in the Gateway City. During this time turmoil was entering the passenger train services with the advent of the loss of U.S. Postal contracts and the potential of a reorganized quasi-national passenger train service.
Regardless of the future, it was still a good time to sense the pulse of passenger traffic and the St. Louis Sojourn was the 'call' in the spring of '68.
This spectacular DVD, digitally transferred from crisp 16mm color film (with a couple of minutes of b&w), is from the camera of noted railfan photographer Emery Gulash.
The following railroads are portrayed in this DVD: Alton and Southern, Baltimore and Ohio, Chicago, Burlington and Quincy, Chicago and Eastern Illinois, Gulf, Mobile and Ohio, Illinois Central, Louisville and Nashville, Missouri Pacific, Norfolk & Western, Penn Central, Southern Railway Co., TRRA-Terminal Railroad Association. 60 Minutes

(Bonus Disc!) Steel Rails-Private Varnish Vol-1
They came from all over the country, some of the grandest vehicles to roll over dry land. Private railway cars, once the exclusive domain of the rich and famous, came together in October, 1994.
They gathered at Chicago to be made up into a colorful train of private varnish to run to St. Louis's grand restored Union Station. Once they were in the Gateway City, nearly two dozen of the cars, together for the convention of the American Association of Private Railroad Car Owners, Inc., were opened to the public.
At the end of the festivities, another special train returned the cars to the Windy City via the Burlington Northern's spectacular line alongside the Mississippi River. The best of the fall foliage season heightened the magnitude of this special train of many colors.
As the official videographer at the convention, Green Frog was there. In the air. On the ground. At trackside. Inside the cars. Behind the scenes. In the kitchens. In the dining rooms. In the lounges. In the domes. In the sleeping sections. Join us for this one hour grand tour of Steel Rails Private Varnish.
