Nothing can ever beat the sound of 2 hard working 2-10-2 Santa Fe types working up hill! Whats even better is that this footage was all shot in the 21st Century on one of the newest mountain rail passes in the word!
All the trains viewed are 100% double headed, and the sound is just spectacular! I could not ask for a better video on the Jing Ping Pass line before it was dieselized in late 2008, early 2009.
The cab ride over the pass gave a unique perspective of the line that one could not get from trackside.
I just wish I was able to see it for myself, but like they say, you are always born way to late!
