The Roaring Camp & Big Trees Narrow Gauge railroad transports passengers to a bygone era as it winds its way through the coastal redwood forest in California's Santa Cruz mountains.

Though many people ride the trains, enjoying the scenery from open-air passenger cars, few get the chance to ride in one of the line's historic steam locomotives.

On November 13th, 2009, TSG Multimedia recorded the trip from Roaring Camp to Bear Mountain and back from the cab of engine No. 1, the Dixiana, a 42-ton, two-truck Shay built in 1912. We took three cameras with us, one in the cab, one atop the fuel bunker, and one clamped to the running board above the steam cylinders.

Experience the sights and sounds of a working steam locomotive from the inside, including occasional commentary by the engineer and fireman as they coax the locomotive and train up punishing grades of up to 8% in some spots!

This video is presented in real time, so you can ride with us through every minute of the journey!

Join us for an unforgettable Shay Cab Ride!

It is pretty much as described, a cab ride in real time, with three cameras showing different views including in cab. In my view they did miss an opportunity by not having a camera at low level filming the cranks flying around. There is also an explanation of the cab controls by the engineer and fireman.
