Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

Step back to 1991 to experience one of the busiest and most scenic railroad routes in Northern California, the Shasta Division of the Southern Pacific. The Valley and Black Butte Districts host a daily parade of heavy lumber and merchandise trains, joined by an ever-increasing number of intermodal movements.

Our coverage of this exciting area starts in Redding and continues to Grass Lake. Trains cross the dramatic Redding Trestle as they start upgrade into the mountains. The constantly twisting route follows the Sacramento River to Dunsmuir where diesels are added to many of the trains for the battle through Cantara Loop and up the stiff 2.1 percent grade through Azalea. Continuing east from Black Butte, trains climb a constant 1.4 percent grade as they skirt their way around the base of Mt. Shasta.

On the Shasta Division, Southern Pacific's trains work their way through changing and spectacular scenery. You'll experience the challenges they face as they cross high trestles and grind uphill to the summit at Grass Lake. You'll witness the seasons change from summer's long days to winter's snow-covered slopes, as the trains keep moving. Interesting motive power, varied and plentiful trains, and the difficulties of mountain railroading await you in Southern Pacific's Shasta Division!

A great DVD on a classic railroad I used to work for and sadly is none gone like so many others. The quality of photographer is fantastic typical to so many other DVD's from Pentax, narration is also good and informative. The scenery is fantastic and make's this DVD a Must have for any SP fan. Classic lash ups of Tunnel Motors, SD40s, SD45s even some SD-9's make up the motive power scenes, a nice collection of freight cars which a lot of these are now gone fill out the trains, who would have ever thought the day would come when SP and SSW Hydra-Cushion box cars would be hard to find and get you excited. It was great to see trains the way they used to be with out all the modern day graffiti all over everything. 5 stars out of five.

Excellent production of a very scenic SP route with neat footage of trains and motive power (almost all of it 2nd generation EMD) in the mountains. Narration on some occasions is cut over locomotive noise, but it is only a minor detraction. If you're a fan of SP or mountain railroading, pick it up; it's a keeper.
