Charles Smiley Presents: Great Shortlines West

This video is revised and expanded from the first release. We visit 10 shortlines with scenes spanning from 1970 to 1998. We had full access to the Angelina & Neches River Railroad, in Texas, and the Central Oregon and Pacific, in Oregon, with the “inside” look at two very capable shortlines. 

See the Modesto & Empire Traction, Amador Central, Central California Traction, Yolo Shortline, Trona, South West Portland Cement, Stockton Terminal & Eastern and the Ventura County Railway. Every shortline and industrial rail line has a rich story to tell and we have them.

ALCOs, Baldwins, and early GE and EMD Geeps earn their keep on these wonderful shortlines. If you like shortlines, industrial lines and regional lines, you need to see this video!

To quote Railfan & Railroad magazine, “This video Definitely maintains the high standard of quality that one has come to expect of Charles Smiley…. In fact, it’s one of the best railroad videos I’ve seen lately”.

To quote Trains magazine, “This is a very nice and quite educational tape, typical of other productions by this firm.”
