Marvel at the UP from the 1950s to 1996. Lots of early diesels from many great locations. Both passenger and freight trains are featured in the pre- 1971 years. See Cajon Pass, Chicago, Wyoming, Afton Canyon, Cima Hill and much more. The older vintage UP power ranges from GP9s, GP30s, DD35 and DD40X models with a great variety of early and late GE units. More great action just after the UP took control of the SP. See UP trains on Tehachapi, Coast Line and Sunset Line. This video also brings the C&NW as it was being folded into the expanding UP empire. See C&NW power in several paint schemes on home Chicago rails and far out west mixed into UP trains.

    The Union Pacific Railroad has grown to be the largest railroad in the USA. This video takes us through the final years leading up to that. With the mergers of a number of other railroads, we see how it all happened in the 1980’s and 90’s. There are plenty of maps throughout the video, and there is a lot of narration. I felt the narration was a bit overdone, and that the scenes were at best to be mainly favorite locations. A great deal of the current system appears to be lacking. What is seen is good, but so much more could have been in the video. Like all Charles Smiley videos, there is an overlap from other videos. There is plenty of power shown, in a wide variety of regions, but simply underdone, even by the standards of the producer. I did enjoy the video, and although I do recommend it, it is not a high priority video.
