Doublestack containers have revolutionized the railroad industry. You can see them everywhere across the nation. Yet one of America’s most famous railroad landmarks has been off limits to doublestacks due to numerous tunnels with restricted clearances. Now, after millions of dollars and months of hard work, the famous Tehachapi Loop has doublestacks traveling around it in spectacular style!

Pentrex visited Tehachapi to show the results of the work done in the tunnels and trackside to prepare for the doublestacks. A season of record rainfall in California left hillsides green and gorgeous, and every shot in this video is a beauty! You’ll see the latest high-powered, high-tech locomotives growling up the grades and pulling their mile-long trains around the Loop. This video has it all: spectacular shots of the newest locomotives, nonstop train action, incredible scenery, and now doublestacks for the first time!

    My uncle gave me this program as a vhs for my birthday when I was a kid and I liked it then and I still like it. It is short and sweet and shows the Tehachapi loop as the first double stack trains were rolling over the line. We see fairly diverse locomotives of the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific.

    This is a fairly short video compared to most Pentrex films, but still very good. At the time, it was a view of the “modern” trains on Tehachapi, of course now things have changed but still great to see warbonnets and SP trains hauling freight over this Iconic rail line.
