Our programs show the whole train

  • Most programs show all trains for 24 hours or more
  • Train symbols, origins, history, and operations covered in narration
  • No train video producer does a better job of explaining railroading than we do
  • Our programs are truly documentaries of railroading
  • Years 1992 to present

Our mission is to document the incredible changes going on in today's railroading. Our programs are aimed at customers interested in operations and fans and modelers that want to know what is truly going on in railroading and to see the whole train. We are the only train video producer who makes every effort to identify and show complete trains. Expert commentary tells about the changes in operations over the years, schedules, and what a particular train is carrying and where it is going. Most of our DVDs and videos show 24 hours of action on a particular line or at a given point. These programs give a 24 hour "look" at today's railroading that is unprecedented in the train video industry and will become more valuable as time goes on.  Our programs are documentaries that cover contemporary railroading from 1992 to the present and were shot in locations all over the United States and Canada. These DVDs and videos are not simply a collection of runbys of locomotives and a few head end cars taken at different places. We are recording history!  That is why original slogan was "No More Mindless Runbys."
