Southern California Rail Journal 2009 continues the saga of a railfan journalist who travels throughout this vast region of famous railroading locales to record the never-ending parade of interesting trains and equipment found here. This visual journal contains all new footage not seen in other shows, and it is presented in the same chronological order as filmed so that you can experience Southern California railroading in 2009 as it unfolded.

Making several appearances on the grades of Cajon Pass and Beaumont Hill are Union Pacific Heritage Units #1983, #1988, #1995, and #1996. Union Pacific's #4141, the George H.W. Bush locomotive, performs two great run-bys for our camera, and both Olympic units are spotted on Cajon. You'll see everything from military trains, work trains, circus trains, and passenger specials to Metrolink's dazzling Holiday Toy Express. Our journey takes you to Colton Crossing, Beaumont Hill, the Cajon Subdivision, Fullerton, and Buena Park. Coverage also includes activity on the Yuma, Los Angeles, Alhambra, and Needles Subdivisions. Insightful narration and the beauty of the surrounding terrain enhance these striking images of trains battling nature. All this and more await you in Southern California Rail Journal 2009!

Slightly different than what I expected from reading the dvd. Not a bad train video just not the coverage I anticipated. There was some interesting footage but they always cut it off too soon and seemed to focus more on the normal stuff instead of the stuff you rarely get to see. I would purchase this dvd on sale but it's not worth full price , I had planned to buy 3 of these videos '08,'09,'10, now I am not sure I'll buy anymore of them.

Loved all the heritage units, foreign power along with assortment of locations.
Would like to have seen more main line action a few more spots along the transcon.
Good videography was a bonus compared those who just "point and shoot".
A little over priced. I wouldn't have bought it if it weren't on sale.
Overall, nice video to watch. I really enjoyed it.
