Welcome to Volume 6 of our exciting At the Throttle Cab Ride series! In this program, we'll show you a railroader's perspective and a whole lot more as we once again take to the rails in Southern California. Not only is this production the longest of our At the Throttle shows, it's the most varied. This time, our cameras have been placed on top of, in front of, inside, behind, and even underneath many BNSF consists. With each scene lasting only a few minutes, you'll be constantly entertained by new and interesting vantage points and locales.

Starting off on the San Bernardino Subdivision, we move to Barstow, Cajon, Hobart Yard, Santa Ana Canyon, the Harbor Sub, the Alameda Corridor, and many other busy areas. The really unique aspect of this coverage comes from the way you'll see the tracks, the trucks and axles, and surrounding terrain as the trains go about their duties. Some of the camera placements include roof mount on the lead and rear engines; on the knuckle; underneath, inside, and on top of the steps; on the cars; inside the cabs; and even between the rails as the train rolls overhead. This gives you a chance to experience railroading in a way no other program can provide. It's an exciting way to live life on the rails close up and personal. Join us for a rare adventure in At the Throttle Cab Ride Volume 6 A Railroader's Perspective!

IMPORTANT NOTE: It has come to our attention that there is a very minor error on this title at minute marker 1:33:28. There is a half-second blip here that may or may not even be visible. We tried it on 4 machines, and on one you can see the blip (like a missing frame or two), and on the other machines, nothing was visible. The customer that reported this said the DVD froze up at this mark.

An interesting video with many camera shots from various angles. While I found the video interesting, some of it overlaps the previous 5 volumes in this series. Narration is somewhat limited for a Pentrex. There are many fans who would enjoy this type of video with shots of the wheels, looking backward, etc, but there are fans who will find it a touch boring. I found that I could watch it while working in the house, miss some segments, and yet not miss anything. As a video collector, it adds to the collection by keeping the series going. As a rail fan, I could have done without this video. I recommend it, yes but not as a priority. Rated 3.

THE Video was very well done. Their were a lot of interesting shots, such as the shot of the drawbars moving, and the shot where camera was on top of the locomotives, very interesting.

I was expecting more from the cab shots and even some chatter with the crew, alas this was missing. The various angles and views are unusual to say the least. For me, it didn't take long to get bored with the subject, but the new construction was refreshing-could have used more. Good thing it's cheap! Pentrex could have (and should have) done better with this one.

Additional remarks by TRAINMASTER:
Narration: Could have used more.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.

I believe that placing a camera under the train and near the wheels etc was too much... It could have concentrated more at the Engineers position and views and that would have made the content much better viewing.

Very interesting. Time went by fast, enjoyed the views and "side trips" off the main lines.

Very interesting DVD with never before seen shots and camera placement. I did enjoy it and since I am a model railroader, can take a lot of information about trackside details from place I will never see and incorporate them into my layout.
