This 1950 to 1978 feature brings the long-vanished SP visions out west. Cab-Forwards, early F-units and the snows on Donner Pass plus both sides of the beautiful Bay Area are in this video. See Tracy, Shasta, Colton, Sacramento, Tehachapi, Suisun Bay, Altamont Pass, Dunsmuir, Oakland, Berkeley, San Jose and much more.
This is an interesting period of freight and passenger steam and early diesel power at its best!
Don’t miss the Coast Daylight, San Joaquin Daylight, mail trains and “commutes” behind steam and early diesels. See diesels from the early tiger stripe, Daylight colors, black widow, and finally scarlet & gray.
To quote a review in Railfan & Railroad magazine, “Twenty-six photographers contributed to this program which is skillfully edited and narrated. I highly recommend this as a quality program….”.
