You'll also see a welded rail train, a track geometry car, repair shows, icing docks, and much, much more.
Each of the six films included in this program is a vintage gem! Here's what you'll experience in Workin' on the Santa Fe:
Track repairmen learn safe handling techniques for the many tools they'll use, such as the spike maul, pick and sledge, claw bar, lining bar, rail fork, and others.
Count the Seconds
Yard workers learn what happens when safety isn't uppermost in mind as they work around moving equipment!
The Continuing Challenge
Santa Fe mounted a camera underneath an empty car to find out why derailments occurred on high-speed trains in 1974, with shocking results!
Barstow: Nerve Center in the Desert
See the construction efforts that enabled Santa Fe to move 4,000 cars in and out of the 'new yard at Barstow' every day.
This 1950s film shows what happens when loading, locking down, coupling, and taking up slack aren't done right!
The Argentine Yard - A Design for Tomorrow
Santa Fe's new systems process up to 3,100 cars a day, twice as many as before computerization.
Enjoy this nostalgic trip back in time as you explore one of the all-time favourite fallen flags. You're Workin' on the Santa Fe!
