At the Throttle Volume 5 takes you to Southern California's scenic Surfline, primarily in San Diego and southern Orange Counties, to enjoy images of railroading that few ever experience. With our camera mounted inside and outside the cabs of several different BNSF locomotives, you'll get to see the road not only from the engineer's perspective but from other interesting angles and placements as well.

For many miles, the Surfline skirts along the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, giving riders a spectacular view of California's coast. You'll start your journey on board a San Diego-bound freight and then will make several trips in both directions over scenic portions of the line. Among the familiar landmarks you'll pass are the San Clemente Pier, the Carlsbad trestles, San Onofre, Oceanside, Leucadia, Del Mar, the climb up Miramar Hill, and San Diego.

For the most part, our cameras are mounted at various positions on Dash 840 CW and C44-9W locomotives hauling BNSF freights, on the lead units and also on following units. These heavy, hard working engines take us past meets with Amtrak's Pacific Surfliners and North County Transit District's Coaster and Sprinter commuter trains. At the Throttle Volume 5 is not your traditional cab ride; it's a totally unique journey along one of the most scenic lines in America!

Did not meet my expectations for a program with the camera mounted on the lead engine. Very little of this type of programming. If promoted as such, it should have been the majority of the program, not as little as Pentrex included. I do not believe this meets Pentrex's high standards and advertising for this DVD.

"At the Throttle Cab Ride Vol. 5 The Surfline" is an OK title. However, I was expecting something different. Certainly the previews of all the titles combined makes for some interesting footage. This DVD starts out slow, and it focus more on the scenery rather than the train (or equipment) itself. I was hoping for a lot of mechanical type shots of the train in motion (e.g. wheels, rooftop as the train accelerates, side walkway, between couplers, etc.). However, that was not the case, unfortunately. Of course, the scenery as viewed from the cab or front of the loco was indeed nice. There are some great and beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean. I wonder what volume of this series focuses more on the obscure shots rather than the scenery?

A great video of a line I am very familiar with. I have been on this line many times on the passenger trains, but this video gives me a perspective from the freight operations point of view.

Great sites and sounds. Love this one. The only thing I have negative about this series is there are not all the scenes that appear in the previews. Where are all the camera angles of the hitches coupling, etc.? Are there more in the series? I sure hope so. These are fun to watch. Pentrex videos are the best in my opinion.
