    Default Rocky Mountain Railroad (Video)

    I really appreciated the team of people in this video and their contributions that keeps trains moving during difficult challenges. Sorry everyone. I tried moving the video back to the start but it didn't let me edit it. Then I tried to delete the thread. Anyway, start from the beginning.

    Well, looks like there's only 3 full episodes on YT. It's interesting. I never really considered how much of a challenge CP has over the mountains on their system. This was probably what it was like on Rollins Pass back in the day.

    I cannot stand hyped documentaries, where the commentary is designed to sound dramatic even when it's not.

    Honestly, this "hyped up" is nothing compared to that other show that was around awhile back, with the guy that works for Guilford/Pan Am.

    At least this drama is real. While I don't personally have the experience in the Canadian Rockies, I will say, something as simple as a frog being in need of replacement, and holding up trains, is pretty dramatic.

    TV and radio is an entertainment business. If they don't express excitement about most things, people won't watch or listen.

    The exact reason I gave up watching Nat Geo documentaries (amongst others) years ago.
    Re-enactments also turn my stomach, particularly those about WW2.
