Train Meets - Double the Action was our first show dedicated to that rare, sought-after moment in railfanning when two trains are meeting each other or running side by side.

Train Meets 2 continues the pace with an hour and a half of nonstop, screen-filling, multi-train action featuring two and sometimes three trains in every scene.

Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Union Pacific trains are the stars of this show, with an occasional appearance by Metrolink. The action takes place throughout Southern California at Cajon Pass, San Timoteo Canyon, the BNSF Needles Sub, the San Bernardino Sub between Colton and Fullerton, and the Tehachapi route. You"ll see a variety of modern high-horsepower diesels heading up trains at Cajon and Summit on Cajon Pass, the flyover at Frost, Daggett, Colton, and Santa Ana. Some unusual treats include a BNSF passenger special at Colton and a UP officers" special meeting the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus train on Tehachapi Pass. It"s great viewing!

This is another fine video from Pentrex! If 1 train per shot isn't enough anymore, then this show is for YOU! Some of the scenes have 3 trains in one shot! What really blew me away was the shot on Cajon with Soo Line on the point passing Norfolk Southern! Otherwise the meet at Frost was a nice surprise too. I recommend this video to everyone!

This program covers runbys where 2, or sometimes 3, trains are filmed at the same time meeting each other.

The locations are all in Southern California and include BNSF's Needles Sub (between Needles and Barstow), BNSF's Cajon Sub (between Barstow and San Bernardino over Cajon Pass), BNSF's San Bernardino Sub (between San Bernardino and LA), UP's Yuma Sub (between West Colton and Indio over Beaumont Hill), and UP's Mojave Sub (between Bakersfield and Mojave over Tehachapi Pass).

In addition to BNSF and UP freights, with some carrying foreign locomotives, Metrolink is also featured with meets at Santa Ana, Orange, and on the San Bernardino Sub. Furthermore, Amtrak's Sunset Limited Train #1 is seen on Beaumont Hill.

Passenger Specials are also featured. On the San Bernardino Sub, a cancer-patient carrying train is seen and on the Yuma Sub an extremely-rare meet is viewed at Cameron with UP Centennial 6936 on an officer's special to Salt Lake City and the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus Train Red Unit.
