New Mexico...the Land of Enchantment and a tour along the BURLINGTON NORTHERN SANTA FE's busy, scenic Gallup Subdivision would not be complete without a close look at the wide open spaces of western New Mexico.
Previously, we've seen the rugged grandeur of New Mexico's Abo Canyon with its magnificent bridges and now, we push further west along the BNSF's New Mexico Main. The vast arid high plains and towering red cliffs form a breathtaking backdrop for the BNSF's new distinctive orange and green Heritage paint scheme reminiscent of the fabled GREAT NORTHERN. Also you'll see BURLINGTON NORTHERN's familiar green and white units, SANTA FE's blue and yellow units and of course, the nostalgic red and silver Warbonnets.
So settle back and enjoy this action-packed story of a modern railroad as it passes through spectacular scenery on the Laguna and Acoma Indian reservations in the heart of the old West. Photographed in 1999 and 2000. 58 minutes. Jacket photography by Al Chione. Copyright 2003 WB Video Productions
