Enjoy powerful diesel locomotives as they battle the rugged southwestern U.S. – as the Union Pacific heads west over the Caliente Subdivision. This 240 mile section of mainline runs between Milford, Utah and Las Vegas, Nevada. This line is a major portion of Union Pacific’s route between Salt Lake City and Los Angeles. The geography on both sides of the town of Caliente is fascinating and our cameras take you to both the Meadow Valley Wash and the Clover Creek Canyon. This is a remote region rarely seen on a railfan DVD! This is rugged territory with many tunnels and small bridges. The action is nonstop with all types of revenue freight. You’ll watch a ballast work train, then later hop aboard the front of the locomotive for a different view as you see some of the tunnels of Clover Creek Canyon. You’ll see hotshot doublestacks that require pushers on the eastbound 2% grade east of Caliente, and you’ll see Amtrak’s Desert Wind, which no longer operates. From desert to canyons you see loads of action including 70 mph pacing scenes and even some winter shots.
