Kingman canyon- spring of 1991
Author: ATSF5964

Here is some more stuff from the early nineties- a trip to Kingman in May of 1991. Blue and yellow was the predominant color scheme on the Santa Fe; the warbonnets were still new enough to be assigned priority intermodal trains almost exclusively. Unfortunately, my old JVC VHS camera had no real protection against the area's constant wind, and wind noise isn't something I've figured out fix in post-production as yet. Nevertheless, at least the roar of multiple 645s comes across well enough!

Nice video! I don't mind the wind sounds at all. Makes you aware they were present. Kind of adds to the feel of the locale.

Wow! That was sweet and I might add VERY well done. Curious as to what kind of camera were you using at that time. Thanks for sharing and hope you have more.

Very well done.  You put a lot of effort into those shots and it paid off handsomely.

Yes, nicely done.  The red and silver is a treat, of course, but trains that really stood out to me were the ones powered entirely by 4-axle blue and yellow power.  In 1991, a GP39-2 and a B23-7 could still slip out on a pig train.

Awesome video, I loved the shot of that 952 train, seen that thing climb the loop and it was always 6 lead units and a 5 unit helper set and all 11 erngines were screamin'!
