Cajon Pass is the busiest railroad mountain crossing in the United States – with 100 trains up and over the pass, over 4 tracks, every day. This show covers the most exciting, most well known spots on the pass. In 14 miles of the West Slope we see Sullivan’s Curve, Mormon Rocks, Blue Cut, Silverwood and the Summit – and more. With grades as steep as 3% and both Union Pacific and BNSF pouring trains back-to-back through this 14 mile funnel landscape, this is exciting big-time railroading!
This show was shot in the very last months of 2019. It is as new as we can bring you. We include trains running through rare snow on the pass, catching the action from the air in the very last days of 2019. Snow was not the only unusual visitor to the pass in 2019. Watch as we feature a few scenes of Big Boy 4014, Union Pacific’s giant steam engine, as it runs through SIlverwood.
