This is an incredible DVD set. Seeing the desert scenery and Cajon Pass in the cab of a locomotive is always fascinating. The narration is just about right so as not to ruin the scenes with useless yackety yak and it gets to not only the points of interest but introduces the crew members and from time to time gives a shot or two of the cab interior. The actual sounds and radio communication make this a great DVD to watch over and over again. I also got a kick out of the two trainmen arguing over the radio as our train arrives San Bernardino. A fantastic video and a must have for Santa Fe railfans.

This cab ride series covers Amtrak #3, the westbound "Southwest Chief", from Needles, CA to the train's western terminus in Los Angeles, CA filmed on March 15, 1999 on P42 Locomotive #33.

Filmed on One day During March 1999, this 4 part set features great desert scenery, as well as meets with BNSF Freights, and some Metrolink Commuter Trains into LA. Its really Rare to see the chief operating in the late morning sun because of unexpecting delays, making this visit really rare indeed. Usually at sunset & sunrise, but this 4 part set, Rare Late morning sun.

This is a good series of videos. However I think it would be a little more interesting if you could hear more of the conversations in the cab.

A Must Have for cab ride fans. The ride through the desert and over Cajon Pass was very impressive.
