A different style of, a high quality rail program. Viewers will travel on Alaska Railroad on passenger trains. Scenery is an important element and has a co- star role, in the journey. This show includes: wildlife, glacier visit, a boat ride and a plane tour. Music and narration, with a little bit of train sound. An overview of the area, and historical background are to be gained here. A PBS style presentation.

Filmed with co-operation of The Alaska Railroad in July, 2004.

portageThis release is focused on passenger operations. Freight only makes a cameo appearance.

Modern cinematography equipment has the film in Hi Def. The picture is crystal clear. Audio has excellent balance. Broadcast level production. Chapter menu has selections for the boat and plane ride, besides the train. On screen location graphics. The soundtrack is mainly light jazz, adult contemporary music.

Narration is smoothly performed by Juan Jose Aguirre. Script is balanced and informative. Good history of town formations and the railroad. The presentation is done in a relaxed manner. Music and scenery, that is geared towards mature adults.


Beautiful scenery abounds as we travel the line.

Rails to the Kenai is a unique train video. Reaching beyond the normal parameters, the inclusion of the additional material is great! Should  be appealing to most any viewer.
