This is the second show Pentrex has devoted to that rare, sought-after moment in railfanning when two trains are meeting each other or running side by side. Train Meets 2 continues the pace with an hour and a half of nonstop, screen-filling, multi-train action featuring two and sometimes three trains in every scene. Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Union Pacific trains are the stars of this show, with an occasional appearance by Metrolink.
The action takes place throughout Southern California at Cajon Pass, San Timoteo Canyon, the BNSF Needles Sub, the San Bernardino Sub between Colton and Fullerton, and the Tehachapi route. You’ll see a variety of modern high-horsepower diesels heading up trains at Cajon and Summit on Cajon Pass, the flyover at Frost, Daggett, Colton, and Santa Ana. Some unusual treats include a BNSF passenger special at Colton and a UP officers’ special meeting the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus train on Tehachapi Pass. It’s great viewing.
