Travel back to 1994, prior to the Santa Fe merger with Burlington Northern, and explore Santa Fe’s San Bernardino Subdivision in Southern California. Most of the trains you’ll see here are pulled by pure sets of Santa Fe power, both Super Fleet locomotives in gorgeous red-and-silver Warbonnet paint and units in classic Santa Fe blue-and-yellow colors as well. The motive power is diverse and includes GP60M, GP60B, GP50, GP39-2, GP30, GP20, GP9, SD45-2, SDF40-2, the rare 7400-class Dash 8-40B, Dash 8-40BW, and Dash 9-44CW.

Complete coverage of the San Bernardino Subdivision begins at San Bernardino and continues to Hobart Yard in Los Angeles. A scenic highlight is the single-track segment through Santa Ana Canyon, at a time when grading for two additional main tracks was underway. Trackage-rights trains are also featured. These include Union Pacific freights between San Bernardino and West Riverside, plus Amtrak and Metrolink passenger trains between Fullerton and Los Angeles. This exciting bit of history is a must-have program for all Santa Fe fans!

Two stereo soundtracks, one with the natural train sounds, the other with narration added. The viewer can switch the narration on or off at any time.
Bonus Footage: 5 minutes of previously deleted scenes.

  1. T.A.R.

    GOOD DVD FROM THE EARLY 1990’S. THIS WAS MADE BEFORE THE SF MERGER WITH BN.
    MOST TRAINS ARE PULLED BY PURE SF POWER. SEE THE RED AND SILVER SCHEME WARBONNET SCHEME, AND THE CLASSIC SF BLUE AND YELLOW. COMPLETE INFORMATION ABOUT THE SAN BERDO DIVISION. SEE AMTRAK AND METRO LINK TRAINS AS WELL. GREAT MUSIC AND NATURAL TRAIN SOUNDS WITH OR WITHOUT NARRATION. 5 STARS AND 2 HOURS LONG.

    If your not a Santa Fe fan, thats okay, this video is very well done, informative and shows a by gone era of railroading. To only think that it was shot over 20 years ago is crazy. I really like this video.

    LOVE IT!!!! LOVE IT!!!! LOVE IT!!!!

    An AWESOME capture of the ATSF at an AWESOME time in history! The San Bernadino Sub is a great piece of railroad to visit and Pentrex visited at a great time in the history of the ATSF! I had always thought that once trains on the ATSF reached San Bernadino that they were basically in LA….I was wrong! If you buy this video I strong recommend picking up the following additional titles by Pentrex because they truly are a collection:

    Santa Fe’s Mojave Mainline
    Santa Fe’s Arizona Mainline DVD
    Santa Fe’s New Mexico Mainline Combo DVD
    Cajon II Combo DVD
    Cajon Pass – Tehachapi Loop DVD

    Santa Fe to L.A. is a good video. There is lots of train action, with a wide variety of the Santa Fe roster, along with other companies, including plenty of passenger and commuter trains. The scenery is well shown for the region with the excellent hills as backdrops to the north and east of San Bernardino. The narrators do a good job telling the story of the line to Hobart Yard. And there is a few little surprises that do open the eyes of the viewer, like a “pig train”, market size pigs that is. You can even hear the pigs squealing. It’s your basic train video from Point A to Point B. Other than the “pig train”, the bonus footage shot from the Green River Golf Course is what I considered the best part of the entire movie. Looking up, watching trains roll by while golfers take little notice. Not on my favorite list, but not a disappointment either.

    If you love santa fe you will love this, if you are young and like BNSF, come see what merger partner Santa Fe was like before it was merged with BN.
