'5 Days at Tehachapi Pass April 2013' is a wonderful compilation of Tehachapi at its best. The video features many seldom shot vantage points and is high quality from start to finish. I would highly recommend this DVD or the new Blu-Ray to anyone who is a fan of the Tehachapi Pass or western railroading in general.

A have several Tehachapi DVD's from the major players, yet I enjoy this one more than others because of some of the locations and views they show. You only think you've seen the Allard Horseshoe.....but wait till you see the heights that they go to bring you the action like no one else has before. Great program, highly recommend it.

I just finished watching and then rewatching Five Days at Tehachapi Pass. I would highly recommend this blu-ray production to anyone. I love not having to deal with narration getting in the way of the train sounds. The information box at the beginning of each sequence and the occasional additional text is more than enough--especially for such a well-known railfan location. The quality of the image is consistently crystal clear, excellent color saturation, and the sound basically brings you up close and personal to the action. The multi-camera angles, editing, and location choices are also top notch--with a nice mix of artistic shots and standard wedge views. The best shots include the expansive panoramas at Bealville as well as the dramatic runbys in the town of Tehachapi. I love long zoom shots and there are plenty of those. The producers picked a great time to be on location as the hills are as green as they get and the weather was perfect, with lots of blue skies. There are some nice reminders of fallen flags with both Warbonnets in the lead, an SP scarlet and grey helper, and a surprise appearance by an ex-BN cream puff. The video takes the us to lots of little known locations in this area, and as there are a million other Tehachapi discs out there that feature The Loop, sacrificing it in this production to show all the other cool spots was well worth it! This show is not to be missed.

When railfans think of Tehachapi, the loop of course is the focal point. But the route from Bakersfield to Mojave has so much more to offer and this video gives us an ample taste of some of the lesser known location along the route. I love seeing places I have not personally been to and gives me ideas for my next trip there. The picture quality (on Blu-Ray) is stunning and being there in April gives the surrounding landscape some color contrast not there most of the year. The editing between different angles is seemless and non obtrusive, and times shows great imagination for the odd angle or montage. All in all I highly reccoemnend this video and it makes me anxious for my next trip to Tehachapi!

I'm late with this review. ...I just watched "5 Days..." for the second time and give it 5 stars both times. So that's 10 stars for Left Coast to off set the negative view from Germany. I agree with Ryan. And Blu-ray is awesome!!!

I find that you make a really good quality DVD. Since you have multiple cameras it is better than, because of the different camera angles. Thanks.

I hope this is not the future of railfan videos. I have been there a number of times and hoped for a few new locations and angles but only found what you find everywhere. Except that more than one camcorder were used. The area between Bealville and Marcel (inluding the loop) is totally missing. The order of the videos seem to be the order in which they were recorded. So the video jumps back and forth. Post production was definitively minimized. I am very disappointed.

Additional remarks by Volker Landwehr:
Narration: There was no narration.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: Good.
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 hope that this response is not the future attitude of railfans. I have been making trips to Tehachapi my entire life and many of the locations captured in '5 Days at Tehachapi Pass April 2013 are truly wonderful, and many are unique angles that took much planning and work to reach. Furthermore the feature does cover the area between Bealville and Marcel; including Woodford siding, the 4th and 5th crossings of Tehachapi Creek between Woodford and Walong, and a few trains were filmed working up grade near the bottom end (north end) of Marcel siding. If you were seriously hoping for a video that only cover the trendy Tehachapi locations, including the Loop than I'm sorry but that is simply not the quality that I have come to know from Left Coast Rail Videos. This video is a great compilation on Tehachapi and offers many seldom shot from locations. A must for any real fan of Tehachapi or western railroading in general.
