As with the more recent Feather River video, this Cascade video features excellent photography, and great effort to capture many angles. What makes this older video very distinctive is that the producers had to hike in to some very remote, hilly sites. No one else has covered the Cascade route adequately in the past, due to this low accessibility. Nothing from Pentrex. Nothing yet from Highball or the others. Yet not only does 7idea cover it, but they do so thoroughly and provide an outstanding product which I will view many times.

Simple:Excellent DVD in every way. This covers an area that's hard to rail fan and you don't see many other DVD producers trying to cover it. I tried rail fanning this division myself a couple of times when I was with the SP but most of it is hard to get into. 7Idea does a fantastic job covering the action from Eugene to Klamath Falls, at Chemult the BNSF ex BN main line joins the UP line to Klamath Falls with some great action from both railroads. Its a steal at this price for a two volume set shot in this kind of quality. Great train action, fantastic scenery, plus some nice coverage of UP/SP heritage ACE 1996. An A++++ job.

Never heard of 7ideaproductions before. But what a job they did with the Union Pacific line from Eugene to Klamath Falls Oregon. The pictures were great and the narration was knowlegable. I feel like I know that line, even though I've never been to Oregon. The only thing I could pick on is their lack-of-coverage of Oakridge Yard. There's stuff there and they didn't show it. Still...I love it and watch both DVDs twice a week.

Hey this is a GREAT DVD I grew up and surveyed for ODOT for 37 1/2 years and we worked on the Blue Pool slide just above Oakridge. The slide sent the railroad (Then Southern Pacific) down toward the highway we worked with there surveyors and we did other suveys from Eugene to Klamath Falls and on to the California line with the railroad just very close by. Just wish I could have been a surveyor for the railroads back about 1900.
