It’s nothing short of amazing, 5 years ago Big Boy 4014 was a static display in Pomona, California. Less than 1 year ago, she was in pieces in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Now we see 4014 under her own power in California and at scenic spots along the Sunset Route! In Stock, shipping now!

It’s nothing short of amazing, 5 years ago Big Boy 4014 was a static display in Pomona, California. Less than 1 year ago, she was in pieces in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Now we see 4014 under her own power in California and along the former Southern Pacific Sunset Route! When the 1.2 million pound, 7,000 horsepower Big Boy climbs Cajon Pass, you know it! We catch her at Mormon Rocks and other location on Cajon Pass. We then follow her into Nex Mexico and Arizona, ending with her layover at El Paso, Texas.

This is truly some amazing footage, including drone footage and the song, “Titans of the Wasatch” (Ballad of the Big Boy) (including music video with 4014!)! Pentrex has truly outdone themselves with this coverage!

    I have always loved Pentrex, but in my opinion, this falls below their standards and it seems they try too hard.

    Too much drone footage and unsynched sound with that video really turned me off. The inclusion of a song over the video seems out of place and the pacing footage looks like it was recorded with a smart phone. Color quality is not the best either, the only constant with the rest of the Pentrex catalog is the return of Dave Drui, which is the only thing that makes this a true Pentrex program.

    Package wise, also a big disappointment. The previous owner of Pentrex insisted on high quality paper and lazer printed covers, this one is printed on what seems to be standard printer on an ink jet which seems to be amateurish at most. The previous back covers were in an attractive tan color with a well worded description of what to expect, this, only a few sentences that look like they where written by a middle schooler.

    Overall, a very disappointing program, both footage wise and packaging wise. Kalmbachs program of this same trip is much better then this one put out by “The leader in railroad entertainment” and the new owners need to stop trying so hard and stick with the formula that Michael Clayton, the founder of Pentrex, established during their heyday.

    It’s great to see Big Boy 4014 operating throughout the southwest with an excursion over Cajon and running on the sunset route. Even the song Ballad of the Big Boy is fun to listen too. I think this would be perfect to go in your collection.

    In this 90 minute program, there are scenes on the Caliente Subdivision, Cajon Pass, Beaumont Hill, & Through the Arizona desert into New Mexico. The Bonus Song is really interesting to hear as well as Flashback clips to the Big Boy Collection from 2001, & 4014 update from 2014. Plus there are some BNSF Freights, and pacing the beast.
