Enjoy great action all over the Southern Pacific system – this DVD features a variety of trains hauling freight in a variety of places! The famous Tehachapi Loop is seen as well as Cajon Pass, the gateway to Los Angeles, and Donner Pass. We’ll witness the “Oil Can Train” a monstrous oil train from Bakersfield that assaults Tehachapi with 10 diesels including mid-train helpers. What a sight at Caliente and the loop! You’ll sample freight on Donner Pass in the Sierras, SP’s Shasta Route, and see some SP on the former Rio Grande in Utah. Scenes were shot between 1989 and 1994, and there are two visits to Tehachapi. There is heavy action on Cajon Pass and Tehachapi Loop, some scenes on Donner Pass in California, plus a few other places are sampled. This new-to-DVD version has some additional scenes that were shot in 1995, along the Shasta route, and includes some scenes with Mt. Shasta in the background. There are also a few other scenes in the region including near Klamath Falls.

    Well I watched this unique video as the main focus was the 2 long oil trains between 1989-1991 (Greg’s JVC era). Plus some Santa Fe freights as well as steam engine 4449 on its return trip to Portland just as the 50th birthday celebration, but I’m guessing that they’re only 2 deleted scenes which weren’t seen in neither the original 1989 tape of the engine nor the 2006 re-edit. Plus lots of action near the Pacific Ocean, and the bonus feature of 1995 action was used during production of America by Rail: The West Coast Route. Overall you get what Greg made.
