Film Projects & Commercials

A perfect location for Western-themed music videos

We can supply both steam and diesel locomotives, freight and passenger trains, tunnels, mountains, valleys, and flat open vista, as well as historic depots, furnished offices and heavy overhaul facilities all from the 1920's.

Yes, it gets cold and snowy here in the Winter. We are just over a mile high in elevation. Perfect for cold weather filming.
