Charles Smiley Presents: Western Pacific Remembered
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.
Then from Altamont Pass we run to Stockton, Sacramento and all thegreat 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 have been removed forever.
This ambitious project brings all vintage, color movie scenes shot by6 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 bring you what it was like to work for a fine railroad. We feature many special maps made for this video, train sounds and informative narration.
