Southern California Rail Journal 2010 is the third in our Rail Journal series and it delivers more trains, more variety, longer running time, and more railroading adventure than ever! All new footage, not used in any other Pentrex show, is presented to you in the same chronological order as it was recorded so you can experience the year's activities just as if you were side-by-side with our rail journalist as he sought out the best locations and movements in this densely trafficked region.

Along your journey, you'll pay a visit to the Surfline to catch Amtrak and Coaster commuter trains as they battle Miramar Hill and other sites on the route. You'll be there in May to see former Santa Fe 3751 making her third trip from Los Angeles to San Diego and return on the following day, including the much talked about photo run-by at the Poinsettia Station. You'll also see the 3751 one week later when she pulls a short train over Metrolink's San Bernardino line to the Railroad Days Festival being held at the San Bernardino Station. Colton Crossing and the Cajon Subdivision present their own brand of heavy traffic. You can enjoy trains streaming past two of the area's last remaining wigwags, including the soon-to-be-abandoned portion of Union Pacific's Riverside Branch. Even more variety was found on Beaumont Hill, Cajon Pass, and busy Pepper Avenue in West Colton. For a fast-paced tour of great freight and passenger action throughout the year, turn to Southern California Rail Journal 2010. You won't be disappointed!

Just when you thought there couldn't possibly be any more trains left to shoot in SoCal, along comes yet another in this Pentrex series. Pretty pictures, great sound, and colorful. But I've never seen the whole show straight through - I keep nodding off during the endless series of runbys with absolutely no story to keep me interested. A coffee-table show. The days of Pentrex actually telling a story, as opposed to simply publishing runbys, seem to be long gone, which is a shame.

Additional remarks by RailFan East:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value: Seemed a little high, but not too bad.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.

Mainly its because of Youtube's popularity of getting free online railway videos instead of buying DVDs. that's why the Company was going to go bankrupt soon at the end of this decade.

The best of the 3 volumes.
Crisper image quality.
Great seeing all the heritage units as well as all the foreign power.
A little over priced and wouldn't have bought it if it weren't on sale.

Continuing on with the series of a rail journal, 2010 is not much different than the other 2 volumes. The differences are the trains themselves, and the locations. In 2010, we see the Santa Fe 3751 making a run between 2 large urban centers, Amtrak & commuter trains (essential in southern California with it's huge population), lots of freight action by the Class 1's. The major difference with 2010 is that it is an hour longer than the previous volumes. Worth owning. Good production

Additional remarks by rrvideoman:

Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Excellent Value!
Recommend to others? Definitely.
