This program was original intended to be on the East Bay Area of California, but it has been widened to include other things. We begin in San Jose, California, and work our way up to Oakland. Many commuter trains with Pacific's are seen, as well as war-time black Daylights, Cab Forward's, 4-8-2's, and smaller power on locals. Then we divert to the Altamont Pass line and see several Cab Forward articulateds, and even a 4-10-2 leading one train. Then we continue to Oakland, and see some trains around San Francisco before heading eastward along San Pablo Bay, and a visit to the San Ramos Branch and see some old film of smaller branch line operations. Next we have a Daylight section with a variety of films of Daylight trains in action, mostly with Daylight paint. Next we move to a segment that is east of Los Angeles and includes a lot of 30's and 1940's material mostly on the line to El Paso. There is a wide variety of train action in this segment. Next we see a variety of various SP images before closing out the show with several scenes of 4-6-2 2467 en route to Sacramento in 1999, and with 2472 at Hunters Point in 2001. There is something for everyone in this show, especially if you like SP Steam. Greg Scholl Video Productions

I grew up in Alamo in the '50s in a home that was about 300 ft from the tracks. I loved to watch the trains that came through a couple of times a week with a couple of freight cars and the caboose. We put many a penny on the rail to be flattened by the engine. Great memories brought back by the video.

Additional remarks by DaveN:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Yes.
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Excellent Value!
Recommend to others? Definitely.

I Know That the 2467 & 2472 segments were Shot By Evan Whittaker, but there are lots of countless mistakes during either the editing, the music in sync, or anything else throughout this now 10 year old DVD.

Additional remarks by Steamboy:
Narration: Could have used more.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value: Seemed a little high, but not too bad.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
