Visit the Western Pacific from both sides of the San Francisco Bay down to Niles Jct. and then on the San Jose branch and return to Niles Jct. for a ride through Niles Canyon. From Altamont Pass we run to Stockton, Sacramento and all the great locations to Oroville. Oroville to Keddie brings more trains and great scenery. We run to Bieber on a freight and then return to Keddie to run to Portola. From Portola we ride locals to Reno and Loyalton. From there we review the run over the Great Basin Desert to Salt Lake City. See things that are gone forever. This ambitious project brings all vintage, color movie scenes shot by six cinematographers in 8 and 16-mm film. See film shot in the CZ cab and on locals and freight trains. Lots of scenes shot from trackside and other points of view. This will show you what it was like to work for a fine railroad. Featured are many special maps made for this video, train sounds and informative narration.

  1. Alan Ross

    Ride the Western Pacific from both sides of the SN Francisco Bay down to Niles Junction to see the Niles Caynon to Altamount Pass to Stockton, Sacramento, and other locations to Oroville. See beautiful scenery all the way. Lots if in your face action all the way to Salt Lake City. See maps made for this incredable journey. Great train sounds and lots of informative narration. 5 Stars and worth the money.

    Charles Smiley went to a lot of effort to make this video as good as it can be. The narration is informative and the footage is as good as you would expect from his era – maybe better than you might expect fromt hsi era. His on screen graphics and maps really help tell the story. Great work and highly recommended.
