A Day at Fullerton, California

At the Fullerton Station in Southern California, Amtrak's Pacific Surfliners, Metrolink commuter trains, BNSF freights, Locals, and other trains glide past the platforms one after the other, sometimes with mere minutes between arrivals and departures. Fullerton is a haven for railfans and photographers and we'll show you why!

Pentrex camera crews set up to capture the action at this busy location on a beautiful Fall day in 2007. During the 12 hours from dawn to dusk, over 60 trains passed the station and we filmed them all. Amtrak Pacific Surfliners running between Los Angeles and San Diego are seen throughout the day. Amtrak's Southwest Chief makes a daily stop here. During the morning and afternoon peak rush hours, Metrolink turns into a nonstop parade of trains carrying commuters between Los Angeles and Oceanside or Riverside. The traffic is just as heavy for BNSF freights, with plenty of doublestacks plying these rails. There are surprises, too, such a 12-unit power transfer, maintenance of way, and interesting local freights.

Fullerton Station is located on the BNSF San Bernardino Subdivision twenty-five miles east of Los Angeles. Fullerton Junction, where Metrolink's Orange Subdivision splits off, is just east of the platform. The traffic on these two Subs keeps the station's three tracks in constant use, making this area an exciting hot spot. Join Pentrex for a unique look at a favorite railroading landmark: Fullerton, California from Sunrise to Sunset!

If you don't mind viewing a lot of trains in the exact same location throughout the length of the video, then you will completely enjoy this DVD. I couldn't believe the amount of trains and types of trains that went thru this location in just one hour? I always heard Fullerton was a great place for railfans but, I had no clue as to the amount of rail traffic thru that particular station? You will see everything from super long double-stacks to track geometry cars... and everything in between. This DVD even includes local metro trains of different models and styles. I would recommend this DVD to any railfan and I can't imagine anyone walking away disappointed after viewing this DVD. This is a quality item with excellent clarity, as well as sound and narration.

Additional remarks by Texas Hi-Railer:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Excellent Value!
Recommend to others? Definitely.

I recently went to the Fullerton station as I live only about 20 miles from it and was there for an hour. There was one AMTRAK San Diegan train there which left for Los Angeles as I arrived. A Metrolink train was out of service on a siding but left about when I did. Otherwise no, repeat NO, other trains of any kind at all. No switchers nor locos running light, no nothing. So much for the voluminous traffic there. I know, I know, I probably picked a bad time to visit.

I really liked this video. The numerous commuter trains and BNSF freights running right through the station keep the interest going through the entire show. The beautiful station, palm trees and nearby signal bridges form nice backdrop for the passing trains. On several occasions one train is shown more than once from a completely different angle. Anyone interested in modern railroading will love this program.
