12 Hours on 4 Discs! Over 500 Trains!<br>From the great San Bernardino Valley to the high desert community of Barstow lies one of the busiest and most scenic mainlines in the country. At just over 81 miles in length, the BNSF Cajon Sub is a powerful artery that plays an integral role in moving trains to and from Southern California. With its stiff climb over Cajon Pass, endless flow of traffic, and vistas of stark beauty, the Cajon Sub is a place of limitless photo opportunities for railroad photographers.<br><br>Pentrex takes you on a journey of epic proportions across this railroading hot spot. For close to five years, leaving almost no mile undocumented, filming over 500 trains during winter snow storms and summer heat, we searched out incredible photo locations to take you into the heart of this line as it’s never been seen before!<br><br>BNSF, Union Pacific, and Amtrak deliver nonstop thrills here. These trains are covered on the Mojave Desert between Barstow and Victorville as well as on the challenging Pass. We also capture the action on Union Pacific’s Colton-Palmdale Cutoff as it parallels the BNSF on Cajon Pass. You’ll see numerous trains with foreign power leading, along with other surprises such as passenger specials and Grand Canyon Railway steam engines and tenders riding on flatcars. Plus, you’ll catch sight of the early stages of new mainline construction and tunnel daylighting projects as well. There’s so much to see!<br><br>
On Discs One and Two you’ll explore the lines in detail from San Bernardino to Barstow. Discs Three and Four take you back to San Bernardino with all new footage. None of the images you see here have been used in any other production. This is 12 hours of all new material! You won’t want to miss a second of our blockbuster presentation, The Ultimate Cajon Subdivision!

    It’s a good video. Definitely worth watching. Just see for yourself.

  2. Lloyd

    Here is a very interesting video on Cajon. Watching this movie through, I kept watching for all the different Railroad names that make an appearance with their motive power. All the major North American lines are represented from Canada to Mexico. There are many fallen flags as well. There are some very interesting loads being pulled. High volume of inter-modal. The territory is well shown from many different angles. “The Narrows” is a most enjoyable location. The beauty of Southern California is incredible. This semi-arid land does not lack in scenery. Interesting scenes of note is the fact that it is semi-desert, and yet we noted some large dairy farms in a region unexpected. Nice touch.
    The movie stirs the rail fan with-in to want to travel to California to see it in person, and that is great.
    Each disc is 3 hours long, which is long enough to enjoy, but not to long, and then come back later to view another disc. It’s almost like 4 videos in 1.
    Very much enjoy this video and will look forward to viewing it many times over. Highly recommended.

    This gets boring very quick, and a lot of the camera shots are fuzzy not being HD quality. and as others have said, it is an endless parade of intermodals, and not much editing is done to make this enjoyable. I could rest easy getting rid of this one at a garage sale.

  4. Kraig

    Very well done in depth look at Cajon Pass featuring all the most popular locations. Done before they completed the third main track though. Do include some of the construction of the the third main.

  5. Eddy

    As the title suggests, this Pentrex production is an extensive, in-depth look at the entire BNSF Cajon Sub as it existed in the mid-2000s before being triple-tracked in 2008. Narration is somewhat helpful and interesting, but I would have preferred a bit more with regards to operations. Unless you are a huge fan of watching a seemingly-endless parade of double-stack trains go by, some segments of this program can begin to feel monotonous.

    While there are a few surprises thrown in every now and then, expect to feel a bit burned out after completing the four DVD set.
