Coaster, formally known as Coast Express Rail, operates on a 41-mile stretch of the former Santa Fe "Surf Line" in southern California between San Diego and Oceanside. Popular with both commuters and tourists, Coaster carries over 1.5 million riders per year along some of the most spectacular coastline in North America.

This production takes you to each one of Coaster's eight stations, including the beautiful and historic Santa Fe Depot in downtown San Diego, as well as other locations along the line. Our video footage is augmented by historic and current photographs, and a thoroughly researched narrative.

You'll see Coaster's F40PH-2C and F59PHI locomotives in action, along with Amtrak's Surfliners and BNSF freight trains. You'll see the San Diego Trolley, too, operating under wire on its own tracks.

Coaster is not the only rail service operated by the North County Transit District. You'll also see footage of the NCTD's Sprinter trains in Oceanside! And we have not forgotten Metrolink, which connects with Coaster at the Oceanside Transit Center.

And if that weren't enough, we have footage of Santa Fe 4-8-4 3751 on a 2010 excursion from Los Angeles to San Diego and back!

Join us for a look at some gorgeous west coast railroading!

This 2011 dvd features a great variety of coaster commuter trains along the Pacific Ocean. But besides that, Amtrak, BNSF, the San Diego trolley, and AT&SF steamer 3751 also makes some small appearances as well. While this was an 84 minute dvd as what the cover says, the main program is only 79 minutes but the bonus 5 minutes however contain the christmas specials at sunset and sometimes in the dark.

Additional remarks by Steamboy:
Narration: Just enough.

Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Excellent Value!
Recommend to others? A "Must Have"!

Just ok.For a California video I was expecting to see more ocean scenes instead of just shots of the train going past a various locales.Around 40 minute mark I saw some ocean footage then it was over quickly. glad I didn't pay full price for it as it was on sale. The surfliner and above California rails are much better to view.
