The Super Chief: The Whole Story. From Dearborn Station, Chicago to Union Terminal, Los Angeles, with particular attention to the great bridges and the great mountain passes: Raton, Glorieta and Cajon. Above Raton Pass the Sangre de Cristo peaks sparkle in the white of early winter. The Super Chief squeezes onto the single track hung in the slot canyon above Apache Creek as it pushes toward rarely photographed Glorieta Pass. The train roars across the prairie. See inside the luxury consist, and glimpse the rest of the Santa Fe's streamlined fleet in action, including the San Francisco Chief, The Texas Chief, The Grand Canyon, The El Capitan, and Alco PAs leading The San Diegan along the Pacific surf. 64 minutes

Gorre & Daphetid. Two weeks after John’s death the model layout was destroyed by fire. It was thought that all recordings were destroyed with it. Thanks to the rediscovery of these films, this DVD can offer you a direct experience of Allen's miniature world.
Enter a vast network of standard gauge, narrow gauge and mixed gauge- even a trolley line. See more than 100 bridges, no two alike, some soaring 5 feet above the floor. See engines crawl through the labyrinthine canyons of the Akinback Mountain range, complete with working cable cars and water wheels. Catch the saga of the notorious Sore Feats Gang and their terrible but richly-deserved final demise.
John's own slides magnify his exquisite detail, from the snow capped peaks to city lights, and bring to life to the thousands of miniature people and working railroad artifacts that have surprised and delighted so many - train fans, model railroaders, and indeed, all those with an imagination...!
