Running nearly 200 miles between Colton, California and Yuma, Arizona, the Yuma Subdivision is a part of the former Southern Pacific's Sunset Route, which today serves the Union Pacific as an important rail corridor. It is part of the second Transcontinental Railroad built in the late nineteenth century connecting southern California with Arizona, Texas, Louisiana, and Mexico.

The Yuma Subdivision is a diverse piece of railroad with steep mountain grades and high-speed desert running. It climbs over Beaumont Hill through San Timoteo Canyon, and drops down along the shore of the Salton Sea at an elevation of 204 feet below sea-level. It races over the arid desert to a meeting with the Colorado River at the Arizona State line.

This busy piece of railroad is mostly double-tracked, seeing a number of high priority intermodal trains along with manifests traveling to and from West Colton Yard. Long stack trains with both DPU and manned helpers out of Indio dig in for the climb over San Gorgonio Pass.

Join us for this fantastic adventure over Beaumont Hill and along the Salton Sea!

First, let me say that I am a huge 7idea fan, and own at least 90% of their releases. When I think of 7idea, the first thing that always come to mind, is crisp, clear footage, shot with excellent scenery. And as much as I was looking forward to this one, I'm disappointed, and am left feeling that this one was a bit rushed. While I really enjoyed the footage from the Beaumont Hill/San Timoteo Canyon areas, I found myself wanting to fast-forward through the W. Colton yard, Niland, and Salton Sea shots. Although there was some drone footage, I felt that it could have been used more frequently. I also noticed that some of the footage did not have the usual clear-imagery that I am accustomed to. I fully understand that 7idea has no control over the surrounding scenery, and they did ok with what they had to work with. But for me, this one just missed the mark. <br>Interestingly though, in viewing the Previews, I was very happy to see a future release of "UP's Gila Sub", running from Yuma to Tucson. Looking forward to seeing the beautiful Shawmut Valley, Dome, etc. This one should be nice!
