What people are saying about our shows:

TRUE-LIFE ADVENTURES OF REAL TANK ENGINES

"AWESOME!

I thought I was watching something produced by Walt Disney or National Geographic.

The quality is superb.

"I liked it so well, I then decided to watch the children's version. I loved it just as much and it made everyone watching this video easy to understand the operation of a tank steam locomotive.

"Yessiree, I reckon Golden Rail Videos has got a real winner and deserves an award."

Farol Henke
Michigan

"I just wanted to let you know that both grandsons enjoy Rock Trains. They especially like it when those big rocks come out of the side of the car.

"Kadin (age 6) was
very concerned about the cows on the tracks and glad to hear the whistle
telling them to move :)

"Aidan absolutely loves his Real Tank Engines.

Usually the train videos stay at my house, but he packs that one around with him.

It's fast moving and the engines are numbered....he has a thing with numbers :)
Thanks again."

Rhonda Kinser
Hotchkiss, Colorado

"I received the new DVD (REAL TANK ENGINES) and watched it last night.

It is terrific!!


I think you have winner there. The scenes of typical operations - car spotting, coupling, etc. are really a nice touch."
John L
Maryland


A Grandmother from New Zealand:

"I had my 21-month Grandson over today (who is potty about steam trains) and he would not move from the TV all morning. It was played through every option and back again.

Loved it.

A little young perhaps for the story and information. My older Grandson has yet to see it. He is 9.

Thanks for a great product."

Cheers,
Robyn Gabriel
Auckland, New Zealand

"They arrived today. Brilliant DVD's.... .......will be buying more from you guys. Thanks."

THUNDER UNDER HEAVEN
(vol. 1 & 2)

"Thunder From The Wild West is great all-family entertainment. Captures life on the high desert and the impact of a railroad with a destiny."

Model Railroad News
July 2007

"The two DVD's are terrific.

The railroad parts are fantastic AND you really captured the majestic scenery beautifully.

Your shots of the Grand Canyon are about the best I've ever seen!"

Jay Carsman
California

THE ROCK TRAINS

My grandson (Sebastian, age 3) and I have been busy watching THE ROCK TRAINS. I think we have watched the DVD about 20-30 times.

No.10 is "Percy" and No.5 is Thomas. He is beginning to anticipate occurrences in the "tale."

He particularly likes the "dumping scenes" and anticipates "cows on the track."

The shot of No.10 chuffing over the Big Michel River bridge is one of the high points for him each time.

We both enjoy ROCK TRAINS very much. And I certainly enjoy sharing the time with Sebastian. Thank you !

Rush Bailey
California

STEAM-POWER SAWMILL:

"What a journey...from tree to final product! I had to go back a couple of times to get a double take of various segments! Great stuff!

I think I have watched Steam Power Sawmill at least 15 times!

The sound on the DVD is as if I was standing right there next to the machinery, that blew me away!

I look forward to future releases!

Once again, thank you for producing a fine movie!

Joel Ashcroft
(Joel has put together a website filled with fascinating logging photos at http://spcascades.railfan.net/westernLumberCo.html)


"Thanks for producing superior videos. It is most appreciated."
Ed
Oregon


"Thanks for great and outstanding videos!"
George
Virginia


"Thanks very much for a brilliant video." (STEAM-POWER SAWMILL)

--Stephan
Denmark

Like so many of our fans, Stephan loves to build models of railroad operations. Although from Europe he chose to model operations as seen in Western Oregon. You can see pictures of his creativity at his personal website: http://www.stephan-besier.de

We have friends all over the world. We truly appreciate hearing from you. Thanks to all for sharing your feedback and your kind words of encouragement.

Santa Fe steam locomotive #3751
A once-in-a-lifetime event.


NOTE:  We just gave a major makeover to the DVD that used to be called Canyon Rails Steam Celebration.  We added new footage, cleaned up images, and re-edited the whole thing to create two exciting new DVD's.

3751 DVDSteam Giants DVD


Hard to believe it's been over ten years since we filmed this rare railroad activity. It was part of an NRHS event (National Railroad Historical Society).  

But, this kind of mainline steam activity just doesn't happen very often.


That's why we decided to remake the original show. These two new DVD's reflect the true historical significance of Santa Fe steam locomotive #3751's return to the high iron...and the train she pulled.

You can see lots of pictures and information about the new 3751 DVD's here.

---------------------------------------------

(BTW:  If you own the original Canyon Rails and want the new version, we have a deal for you...even if you have the old VHS version. You'll see it at the bottom of this page.)


---------------------------------------------

Logging and logging railroading is the subject of this unusual DVD

DVD cover: A Day in the Woods

"A Day In The Woods" is an action-packed look at the history of logging in North America.


If you've seen lots of pictures from the early days of logging, and wondered what that equipment looked and sounded like, this one is for you.


There's lots of train-action...and other amazing steam equipment you rarely get to see in operation. 

In producting this show, we had access to stereo recordings of some old steam logging equipment.  Wherever we could, we syncronized  the action and the audio to bring life to some very old footage.

To learn more about this film, just click on A Day in the Woods.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's a bright new Shay.

For a while we have offered a rather popular little film called SHAY POWER TOUR for people who are into logging steam equipment. Well, SHAY POWER TOUR has now turned into a big show. This month we have released a remastered, Expanded Edition.

SHAY POWER TOUR now includes a second film called, A DAY IN A SHAY. In it weShay geared locomotive follow the crew for a day-long journey to the end of the line to bring some loaded log cars back to the mill.

So, you get to see the Shay both trackside and in the cab doing what she was designed to do....haul logs.


Here is a link to see pictures and read more about the new Shay Power Tour.

If you already have the original version, follow this link to a special offer.

The Story Behind Golden Rail Video

WHY am I "crazy" enough to have produced all these films over the last 15 years?

I fondly remember as a kid our dad and uncle taking us on industrial tours...such as a paper mill, an iron-range mining operation in Minnesota, sawmills, a cheese factory, and a few breweries.

In elementary school I vividly remember field trips to the local dairy.

As a cub scout I remember touring the local GM plant watching Chevy's take shape, and to a newspaper,... and to a cookie factory!


Like most kids, I liked seeing how things work. Seeing things in action is the best...and most fun way to learn.

------------------------------------

I also remember our Dad escorting us across a border to visit a Canadian Pacific freight yard (...back when no one seemed to mind that kind of thing). The CP was still switching cars with a little 0-6-0 steam engine...one just like my cousin's HO train set. Unfortunately, that was before I could handle a camera. (Somewhere I have a picture of that. I'll post it when I find it.)

Maybe that's why I still love seeing steam locomotives in operation.

And why most of our DVD's involve steam engines.

Steam remains an amazing technology.  (I tried to show that in fun terms in our Real Tank Engines DVD.

Whether they are big steam locomotives like Southern Pacific #2471 in our show The Secret of Niles Canyon, or Big Steam and Private Varnish.... or the little work horses seen in The True-Life Adventures of Real Tank Engines, it is fascinating to see steam technology at work.

(That must be why advertisers often create fanciful images of steam engines when they want to convey raw power. Steam engines do that.)


How are Golden Rail Videos different?

Golden Rail's videos not only entertain with lots of action, but educate.

Maybe the best thing about our DVD's are they bring both fun and knowledge to the railroad hobby. Each one tells a different part of the historic railroading story.

And we pay close attention so that our train DVD's do not repeat the same information over and over.

They are documentaries....but with a difference.

We're not like traditional documentaries. Their goal is to convey as much information as possible as quickly as possible.

And we're certainly not like an "extreme sports" TV show....where a highly-cafinated announcer attempts to squeeze drama out of images that don't really match that "in-your-face" tone.


We take it easy.

We tend to linger on the action..relishing the sounds and images...and let the story and the history unfold as part of the show.

So, we think of each of each DVD as a "True-Life Railroad Adventure."TM

It is a time consuming process to produce them this way. That's why our customers tell us, "There's nothing else out there like your DVD's."


Some customer comments are in the left column. You can see we get notes from all kinds.....from dedicated rail fans...from grandparents, ....and even from moms of young kids.

Here's a few scenes from The Secret of Niles Canyon:

Railfans are a diversified group. They may be collectors of art, historic chinaware or memorabilia. Or they may be artists who craft out miniature versions of the real world in exquisite detail. Or they may be hands-on types who physically restore and operate full-sized rail equipment.

And one thing they all share is that they love seeing interesting rail equipment in action. And that is where we come in. I think we produce and distribute some of the most fascinating railroad DVD's you can find anywhere.

  • Fascinating
  • Educational
  • Different

That is what we strive for with every new DVD.

(And we don't put out a lot of them either. Instead, we try to make each one worth owning.)


No Random Clip Collections

Rather than be like a daily train newspaper ...or random YouTube type video clips, each DVD is historically relevant ...a "true-life railroad adventure" that you will want to watch over and over again.

That's not only our goal, it is our guarantee.

If you aren't satisfied with one of our shows, just return it for your money back*. It's just that simple. We want you to be satisfied that your money was well spent.

(That's another reason we don't just "crank 'em out." A lot of work goes into each one...sometimes taking years to shoot and compile all the footage necessary to make a slam-bang show for you.)


------------------------------------------

Action movies where the train is the star.

To paraphrase Will Rogers:
"I never met a train I didn't like."

But my favorite has always been steam engines. That's why most of Golden Rail Video's DVD's are all about steam trains. These DVD's are not just YouTube-style, random shots of steam locomotives. Lord knows, there's an endless supply of those to watch.

Golden Rail's DVD's are real, in-depth, high-action documentaries.
We call them the American Railroad Heritage Series™.

Our fans are always telling us that they learn something new every time they re-watch one of our shows. And that's what makes us happy. With every new show we want to give you the highest value for your hard-earned dollar.

And these days, we should only spend money on the very best. Anything less is just not worthy of our money.

------------------------------------------

Video Previews
Have you seen our video previews? Some are available by scrolling down.

But, here's something more. Below is a video clip showing the entire "prologue" to The Rock Trains (Two Steam Locomotives in the Challenge of a Life Time.)

I must warn you. They talked me into doing a little 30-second, Walt Disney-type introduction. Even though I am a big fan of Walt Disney I must confess, I'm not sure I'm very good at this :-)

But, once past the intro, you can enjoy the whole opening chapter of THE ROCK TRAINS and see if it captures your interest.

______________________________

We are always thinking...

What if "Walt Disney" ...
or "Steven Spielberg" ...
or "George Lucas" were making
railroad videos ...just for the fun of it?

It may sound funny, but WE think about that all the time.

Walt Disney was an avid railfan. (That's why steam trains encircle Disneyland.)

Rumor has it, Steven Spielberg loves trains. (Just check out "Back To The Future 3" or the opening sequence of "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade".)

So, if these guys were producing railroad documentaries...

  • Wouldn't watching it be almost like an adventure?
  • Would the images be something you'd want to see over and over?
  • Would the sound be super dramatic featuring 5.1 Surround?
  • And the story would spring right out of the action so that you wanted to watch it over and over again ...and share it with your friends.

steam locomotive dvd's

Well, even though we don't have the budget of a big studio, we ARE guided by the same principles.

Story...dynamic action...and sound that adds up a rip-roaring video adventure!

Guaranteed Enjoyment!

Because here's one thing the big studios never do...

We guarantee your satisfaction with every film. Does a major studio promise your money back if you're not happy when we buy a ticket to a show?

So, by ordering directly from us you have the assurance that if you think one of our shows is a "turkey," you can send it back and get a full refund on the price of the DVD.


You may think we are a bit crazy to make a guarantee like this.

But, we are so confident you are going to love whatever you order that we do this for all our on-line customers. And we trust you that you would never betray a trust by making copies and stealing what we do for you.

We have always found our customers to possess a very high level of integrity. We've even had customers call us when we accidentally didn't process their credit card!!!

So, I hope you see that Golden Rail Video shows are not some sort of throway, "best of a web-cam" type of gallery of video clips. Or as someone once put it, videos of " bunch of trains running around."

Far from it.

Each title is a complete documentary film. Each title captivates all ages because each show tells a story.

steam locomotive videos click here.

And here's some even better news:
We have a double-feature discount!

Thunder Under Heaven is a show we were lucky enough to shoot when we did.

Back when the Grand Canyon Railway was privately owned, they ran a steam operation that greatly resembled that of the old Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe!

The result was two unique, feature-length DVD's:

  • Thunder From The Wild West is about the building of the Grand Canyon Line and the impact it had on the Colorado Plateau. (Lots of steam action)
  • Thunder In The Canyons follows a day-in-the-life on that 126 mile-a-day steam railroad. Shot behind-the-scenes with hostlers and engineers telling their own stories.


What a shame we may never see this much daily steam action ever again. But, that makes these two DVD's even more rare.

Both are loaded with lots of train action set against the beautiful Southwest landscape.

The Grand Canyon Railway Story - Volume One
There are some preview videos to watch below.

To read all about this exciting production t
hat brings to life the fascinating railroad history of the Grand Canyon Railway, just click here.

Each DVD is like a feature film....a complete story.

Both shows were shot along the old Santa Fe Railway line that is now kn
own as The Grand Canyon Railway.

Of course, now that The Grand Canyon Railway has been sold to a big corporation, they have suspended all steam operations until further notice.

That makes all the scenes in these shows impossible to duplicate.

In both THUNDER FROM THE WILD WEST and THUNDER IN THE CANYONS we have scenes shot when the GCRy first got started and was running steam in the winter.

These snow scenes are among my favorites! I never get tired of seeing them.
.

Volume 1 is called Thunder From the Wild West. This show tells the often ignored story of the early days before there was a Grand Canyon National Park. The "empire-building" railroad that made it all happen was the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway.




Volume 2,
Thunder in the Canyons takes us behind-the-scenes to experience a day in the life on a major steam railroad. 128 miles every day! Think of it as 24-hours On a Steam Railroad.

And now (sad to say), with the suspension of Grand Canyon Railway's steam operations, this DVD is the only way to get a real feel for what working on the railroad must have been like 100 years ago in the Southwest.

Greetings!
Here's a picture of me
"at the office."


Rob on top of steam locomotive

People ask, "How do you make such great steam train videos?" What a fun question to answer. Yep. That's me in the picture with a big old video camera strapped under my arm on top of a steam locomotive in Oregon (Sumpter Valley Ry #19) as it barrels down the track.

Just "another day at the office?"

Well actually, not every day is as exciting as this. But, that sure was a great day!

And I get to relive those days when I work those long hours of post-production to get them ready for you.

I must not be the only one who loves steam trains. I get letters all the time saying...."Yours are the only railroad videos my family will watch with me."

They say, "You never fully recover from your first train set." I believe it.

I not only like to tell a story of steam railroading, but really convey what it was like to be there.

It always amazes me.

There on location is where the story to be told emerges from the steam and smoke. By the time I am through shooting footage, it seems as though a script for the production has been written in the clouds of steam..

Such is the exhilarating energy that surrounds the iron horse.

That's why I love going to great lengths to get shots like these...so the story can be told with pictures as well as words.

People of all ages can share together in the Golden Rail Video experience.

You could say, "We're bringing the generations together with all the bells and whistles"...but that'd be kind of silly, wouldn't it?
