Pre merger SP and SF on this world famous location in December 1995. The loop is impressive, we had a very nice morning sitting in the sunshine on the hillside overlooking the loops, a long Santa Fe pig train draped around the loop has to be one of the most spectacular sights available. We got in to Cable, Bealville, Tunnels 1 & 2, hiked into tunnel 5, got old power, new power, sunset shots, dawn shots and all in all had a pretty good time. the best thing to my mind was the oil cans, now, sadly, no longer running over Tehachapi. The sight and sound of the loads struggling up the grade with B units is just awesome, ground shaking! We covered the line from Mojave to Caliente.

There is no railroading experience like Tehachapi. And this video does an excellent job showing it. Lots of long trains, from intermodal to oil cans. It takes a lot of power to move the trains as seen with the SP and 8 units on the head end and assisting in helper mode. Highball covers the area very well over a 38 mile stretch with the tunnels and gorgeous scenery.

I got this one right after it came out back in 1996 on cosset and im glad he released it on DVD, its a must have for anybody who enjoy's railroading right before the BNSF and UP/SP merger. Tehachapi in the mid 1990's what more can you say lots of SP speed lettering classic Santa Fe warbonnets and an interesting assortment of rolling stock and intermodial that's now gone. A five star out of five, grab a copy and enjoy the way it used to be.

This was my very first American Railroad dvd purchase, and I still think its good particularly as it shows the Gas tanks roaring and crawling along at about 8/10 mph with loads of head end and mid train helper 40-2 power. A dvd just full of action and close up camera work.
